Koei Tecmo has announced that Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 29, 2019.
The latest entry in the long-running Atelier RPG series sees players take on the role of the titular Nelke von Lestamm. The young noblewoman is tasked with developing the small village of Westwald into a large and thriving city by extending its size, running a number of successful businesses and selling items she synthesizes for money.
Much like previous entries, you’ll be able to explore the areas surrounding Westwald to gather raw materials that can be used in the creation of new items. Nelke herself isn’t a trained alchemist, however, so you’ll have to visit those living in the city to create items – and each one has their own specialities.
You’ll be able to see how Westwald grows over time, as the number of properties, the population and your income all increase. Further improvements can be made by taking on quests and building up your relationships with the townsfolk.
Super fans can get a collector’s edition of Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World exclusively through the NISA Europe store. It contains an art book, official soundtrack, cloth poster and an acrylic standee of the main character Nelke. That’s all packaged together in a fancy collector’s box.
