News – Atelier Sophie has new time, weather and life point systems
The stunning Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book has a number of new features which may very well change the way in which you expect to play a game from Gust’s RPG series.
Firstly, you’ll have to take both the time and weather into consideration before venturing out on missions. Not only will specific monsters stay hidden away during certain conditions, but you’ll also only be able to craft certain materials under the required conditions. This should add an extra layer to the game.
A new Life Point system also means that you’ll have to rest your weary bones at the Atelier from time to time. If you don’t, your fatigue will weaken your attacks.
The story, on the other hand, sees the titular Sophie learn that she owns a book with a soul, and this book seemingly holds all the secrets to the art of Alchemy, and when Sophie upgrades her skills, she’ll learn more about the mysterious book and its origins.
Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is due for release on June 10th on PS4 and Vita. The latter version will only be released digitally.
