KOEI TECMO shares diverse locales located within Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey
KOEI TECMO America has recently shared the expansive settings and diverse locales that you will be able to experience when you enter the beautiful world of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey on March 7, 2017 via PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, or Steam.
The world within the game is quite vast, with views ranging from busy harbors to murmuring rivers and imposing mountains, to name a few. As Firis continues her journey she will visit a variety of picturesque towns and villages such as Reisenberg, the prosperous city where travelers gather, Mechen, a tranquil village with fields as far as the eye can see, and Flocke, the village of dancing snow.
Between these settlements is a plethora of different environments to discover, each with their own particular weather conditions that affect travel. If you select the appropriate attire, Firis will be granted additional benefits and be able to easily traverse the terrains. For instance, the Snow Bright costume will reduce the consumption of Life Points in icy cold conditions while the Zealous Explorer gear aids travel through blistering heat. Of course, outfits can also have countless other effects such as accelerating movement speed, enhancing synthesis abilities, or increasing the likelihood of finding high-quality materials.
As you explore, you will encounter events that you must overcome to achieve access to new locations. Each challenge can have multiple solutions that can permanently alter the environment. A broken bridge, for example, can be fixed for easy access to the other side, but taking an alternate route can also lead to the discovery of useful synthesis materials.
Landmarks can be quite useful for Firis, and she will need to return to them often. Once you have visited a Landmark, you can utilize it as a Fast Travel location, allowing for you to easily traverse across the world.
