Koei Tecmo have announced the upcoming digital only release of Atelier Escha and Logy Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky for the PlayStation VITA handheld system, which will be available from the 20th January 2016.
Following from the success of past Atelier releases on the portable platform, Atelier Escha and Logy Plus is the second stand-alone installment of Gust’s latest Atelier trilogy: the trilogy of Dusk. Preceded by the bittersweet Atelier Ayesha: the Alchemist of Dusk, Atelier Escha and Logy was released for the PlayStation 3 in 2014 featuring a dual leading character model, where the player could choose to see the story unfold through the eyes of the romantic alchemist Escha Malier, or the more levelheaded and rational Logix Ficsario. Surrounded by a colourful cast of interesting supporting characters Escha and Logy learn to combine their strengths and use the power of alchemy to unlock the secrets of the nearby ‘Unexplored Ruins’!
The PlayStation VITA version comes bursting with new content including brand new event scenes inspired by the Escha and Logy anime (released in Japan in celebration of Gust’s 20th anniversary).
Additionally, it includes all the DLC from the PlayStation 3 version, a new playable character, new costumes, and – to the delight of fans of the Atelier IP- a series of new, augmented difficulty missions and harder ‘boss’ enemies!
Finally, Gust have made a some tweaks on the game system, incorporating PSVita-only features and creating a more balanced gaming experience for the PlayStation Vita.
