After previously confirming more Atelier series characters including Shallistera Argo and Iris Fortner, Gust has today published another new batch of screenshots for Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists, the spinoff title where the player will take the role of a noble girl Nelke von Lestamm in building and expanding the town of Westwald.
These new screenshots show you a town that has been developed quite far enough. This game will have over 200 types of buildings that can be constructed and placed to the player's liking. Some of the buildings will be even based on legacy Atelier titles from Atelier Marie to Atelier Lydie & Suelle.
Some of these buildings are special landmarks that are unlocked after Nelke has formed close friendships with certain characters. For example, becoming a close friend of Rorona will allow you to construct a Pie Shop, while befriending Logy will unlock the Air Balloon Hangar.
Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World will be released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch first in Japan on January 31, with an additional PC Steam version for the North American release on March 26 and the European release on March 29. Gust has also recently published a new trailer showing not only the building features but also crafting and battles of the game.
