Get a good look at Atelier Sophie's alchemy system

Gust has released a new trailer giving an example of what players will experiencing using the game's upgraded alchemy system. Over the past few games, the developers have attempted to streamline what was originally a rather complicated feature. Here, it looks like they have taken what they learned and made some interesting changes. 

As shown off in the trailer above, players will start off with players choosing their ingredients to use combined with the right mixing pot. The mixing pot decided upon will affect the grid panel that will appear and the bonuses it will provide. Each ingredient has a different shape for you to fit into the panel Tetris-style, with a variety of bonuses that can be earned that can increase the quality of the overall item.

Players will then get to select the bonuses they want to carry over to the finished product and can use special skills to enhance it even further. From there, it's all about leveling up and learning new recipes much like the other entries.


Atelier Sophie: Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will be released in Japan on November 19th for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation Vita.
