Atelier Lulua introduces story preface, new synthesis systems

"Awakening Effects" and "Add Category."

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has a few new tidbits of information on Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland.

Get the details below.

Beginning of the Story

Lulua receives a letter notifying her that the business license for Rorona’s atelier will soon expire. In order to keep her mother’s atelier going, Lulua sets off on a journey.

Synthesis: “Awakening Effects” System

“Awakening Effects” are hidden effects originally possessed by a material. By using materials with Awakening Effects, you can create items with effects that do not normally appear.

Synthesis: “Add Category” System

Categories can be added to some synthesized items. Awakening (Flavoring), Awakening (Neutralizer), etc. This makes a vast array of synthesis possible.

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on March 20 in Japan, and for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC in North America and Europe this spring.
