Atelier Online

Koei Tecmo, Gust, and NHN PlayArt have announced Atelier Online: Alchemists of Braceir, an online RPG due out for iOS and Android in Japan this winter as a free-to-play title with item-based micro-transactions.

Here’s an overview of the game:

About

A completely new app themed after the Atelier series’ world and game systems. While adopting the series’ charms of a heartwarming world impression, synthesis elements, timeline-based strategic battles, and so on, the game systems are being designed to be easily enjoyed on smartphones. With online support, you can adventure, synthesize, and cooperate with a group of other players, which you could not do in previous Atelier games.

Game Features

  • Travel and Synthesize with a Group of Players – With online support, you can adventure, synthesize, and battle alone or with a group of other players.
  • Beautiful Fields – The appearance of the fields, monsters that appear, and items you can gather change with the time, season, and weather.
  • Gathering and Synthesizing – The game is fully equipped with side elements. Gather up an abundance of items and fuse them through the game’s substantial synthesis system.
  • Battle – Cooperate with your friends to battle strategically. You can fight using items, too.
  • Play Style – Freely customize your outfit and skills. You can freely change your equipment too.

More information is due out around Tokyo Game Show 2017 in September.

(Editor’s Note: Gust has not revealed the official romanization for the word “Braceir.” Our own guess is all we have for now.)
