Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream appears on Best Buy's website with a release date of February 25, 2022
Best Buy has posted a store listing for Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, complete with a box art and screenshots for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It also lists a date of February 25, 2022. The listing was spotted by the eagled-eye Wario64 on Twitter.
Atelier Sophie 2 has not yet been officially announced, though its existence was previously leaked via the Australian Classification board last month. The formal announcement will almost certainly be at Koei Tecmo's TGS stream, taking place soon at 20:00 JST.
Perhaps Atelier Sophie 2 will be the first Atelier series title to receive a simultaneous worldwide launch, but we'll have to wait for the formal announcement for more details.

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream continues the story of Sophie and Plachta’s many adventures. After leaving Sophie’s hometown of Kirchen Bell, the pair discovers a huge tree identical to one that Plachta had seen in a dream, and as they get closer, a mysterious vortex pulls them inside. Sophie awakens alone in a curious new world called Erde Wiege, and it’s not long before she hears about an alchemist named Plachta that lives on the outskirts of town. Shockingly, when Sophie arrives at the atelier, she meets a young alchemy enthusiast named Plachta, and even though the alchemist shares the same name as her friend, she doesn’t recognize Sophie. What other surprises await Sophie on this journey? As the adventure continues, Sophie meets aspiring alchemist, Ramizel Erlenmeyer, who willingly agrees to help her in her time of need. The narrative elegantly unfolds with a charming new visual style that combines the art of the Mysterious sub-series with the high-quality graphics and animations featured in 2021’s Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy.
