KOEI TECMO unveils new tools for Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings
Recently, KOEI TECMO America was excited to unveil some new tools that you will be able to utilize in the upcoming Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, which is scheduled to arrive on March 27, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
The first of these tools is the Ambitions Journal, which Suelle creates to help the duo reach their joint goal of running the best atelier. The ambitions listed within contain tasks related to alchemy, synthesis, battle, and character relations, which have always been the key pillars of the series. As you complete these tasks, you can unlock Important Quests, which, upon completing, will raise your Atelier Rank and increase your chance of discovering new paintings, as well as open up new opportunities to take the alchemy Promotion Tests.
As fans of the series will expect, the twins need to find a variety of resources in order to create some extremely useful items, which are necessary for them to perfect their skills and achieve their goal of becoming the best atelier in the country. The Synthesis system has bee tweaked, adding in new Enhancing Agents and making the process a bit easier for the aspiring alchemists.
These new Enhancing Agents will attach new effects onto your synthesized items and, depending on what you use, can also change the very synthesis panel itself in a variety of ways.
You have Change Agents, which can cause the colored tiles to transform to the color of the agent used, as well as Color Adjacent Agents, which turn the tile and those around it the same color. Add in Connect Agents to change all tiles connected horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to the chosen square of the same color, as well as the Color All Agents, which causes all tiles of the same color to transform into the agent’s color, and you can, with careful utilization, make your items much more effective. One example is granting your bombs a wider explosive radius and more damage.

They have also shared a variety of new screens, further detailing the Synthesis System, three new worlds, imposing enemy, Falgior, and cast of new characters.
