Atelier Lydie & Suelle adds Lucia & Ilmeria to the party with DLC in March 2018 in Japan
Koei Tecmo and Gust have detailed their DLC plans for Atelier Lydie & Suelle in the latest Dengeki PlayStation magazine. Among the DLC, the biggest ones are that two characters will be available to add to the party by purchasing their respective DLC. Lucia Borthayre will be available in early March, and Ilmeria von Leinweber in late March. There will be also collaboration content from Gust's recent games like Nights of Azure 2 and Blue Reflection in the DLC list.
The first batch in mid-January has just been released as a free update patch to version 1.01 in Japan that raises the character level cap from 50 to 100, adds 3 new skills for each of the party characters, raises level caps of Palmyra & Telmyra in the skill test, and fixes some bugs.
