The Dusk trilogy consists of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky and now Atelier Shallie: Alchemist of The Dusk Sea. The Atelier games are light, frothy RPGs. Tons of content and extra stuff to find, but a fairly mellow experience, overall. They star pastel-colored girls and their pastel-colored friends, a few beautiful pastel-colored boys and some colorful, cartoony pastel monsters to kill and pastel pastures to play through. They're terribly pretty games, and I've actually got physical copies of Ayesha and Escha & Logy on Vita.
So here's the deal - the game will be available physically and digitally in Europe, and will primarily release on PSN in North America. If you want a physical copy (pictured above), you can only get it through the NIS America online store. That is, the Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemist of The Dusk Sea Limited Edition. It includes..!
- Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea for PlayStation®Vita
- 30-Track original soundtrack with jewel case
- Microfiber cloth (6" x 6")
- Full-color, 48-page softcover art book
- Collector's box (Includes all the above)
And given my collect-y inclinations... I had to preorder it. Drops January 17, 2017.
Which reminds me, I think I want to get on that Asian release of Dragon Quest Builders...
