KOEI TECMO reveals new features and playable character for Atelier Escha & Logy Plus
KOEI TECMO America was excited to announce new features and a new playable character for the upcoming digital-only release of Atelier Escha & Logy Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, which is set to arrive on January 19, 2016 for the PlayStation Vita.
The character is known as Nio Altugle, and is the younger sister of Atelier Ayesha’s protagonist. Nio played only a supporting role in the original PlayStation 3 release of Atelier Escha & Logy, but now you’ll be able to control her in battle.
Some of the new content that will be present in this version of the game includes new event scenes that have been inspired by the Escha & Logy anime, which was released in Japan to celebrate GUST’s 20th anniversary. The new scenes delve even deeper into the relationship shared by the titular characters and reveals a secret story that was unavailable in the previous versions.
Finally, Atelier Escha & Logy Plus will include all of the DLC from the PlayStation 3 version, new costumes, and a series of new and more challenging missions and boss enemies. This is in addition to various fixes and improvements that should create a more level gaming experience.
For those unaware, here is an official description of the game, courtesy of the press release:
About Atelier Escha & Logy Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
Following the success of past Atelier releases on the portable platform, Atelier Escha & Logy Plus is the second standalone installment in developer GUST’s latest Atelier trilogy: the trilogy of Dusk. Preceded by the bittersweet Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky was released for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system in 2014 and is the first of the PS3 Atelier titles to feature a dual-protagonist story structure, in which the player can choose to see the story unfold through the eyes of the romantic alchemist Escha Malier, or the more levelheaded and rational Logix Ficsario.
