Atelier Sophie 2 - New Characters
- Diebold Lewerenz (voiced by Kengo Kawanishi, designed by Yuugen): A gloomy man who wields two swords and works as a bouncer together with Olias Enders. While he may look sincere and honest, he is actually stubborn and inarticulate. Being a former knight, Diebold's sword skills are of the top class in this world.
- Elvira (voiced by Reina Ueda, designed by NOCO): The goddess who created Erde Wiege and is worshipped by the world's residents. Though she looks like a captivating woman, she has a childish personality. Elvira also has a complex, so she won't show herself to any person other than Ramizel.
Atelier Sophie 2 - New Features
You can use certain items to change the weather. Even the same field will have different items that can be collected and approaches that can lead to new places. For example, you can freeze water to pass over a lake.
There is also a new Great Harvest feature where you can harvest more items than you typically would normally. Using appropriate equipment, such as a slingshot or fishing rod, on a Great Harvesting spot will trigger a mini-game. Depending on the results, you can get various bonuses like better quality/quantity or gaining items with a specific attribute.
