KOEI TECMO America Unveils Release Date For Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings

Gust Studios Invites Players to Discover a Gallery Full of Magical Worlds Along with Legacy Gifts From Exclusive Pre-Order Bonus Content

p>Burlingame, Calif. — November 14, 2017 KOEI TECMO America announced today that the most colorful and artistic entry of Gust’s ‘Atelier’ series, Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings - the gripping conclusion to the ‘Mysterious’ series following the tale of the apprentice alchemist twins Lydie and Suelle - will be released on March 27, 2018 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Switch™, and Windows PC via Steam®.

This next installment to the loved Atelier franchise celebrates the 20th Anniversary for the franchise and summons players to become the best alchemist ever by following the tale of the apprentice alchemist twins Lydie and Suelle. While working with their father to make their atelier the best in town, the outgoing twins surprisingly discover colorful worlds by jumping into magical paintings and soon find that the mysterious paintings hold the residual thoughts of their deceased mother. Traveling through different paintings reveals vivid worlds for the twins – from the light tones of the ethereal ‘Heavenly Flower Garden’, with the falling rain of stars, to the gloomy hues of the not so delightful Halloween-inspired ‘The Spooky Forest’.

Long-time fans, as well as apprentice alchemists, will want to pre-order Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, via select retailers or online via Steam, as it includes bonus DLC costumes inspired from legacy alchemists Marie and Erie. The bonus content also includes an item set full of useful alchemical ingredients and battle-themed music. Additionally, those who purchase the title digitally within 4 weeks from launch from the PlayStation®Store will also receive two custom themes.

Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings also includes appearances from the protagonists of the previous titles - Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book and Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey. The adventurous Firis, her protective older sister Liane, the inquisitive Sophie, and her friendly alchemy teacher Plachta are all back to help Lydie and Suelle fulfil their dream to run the best atelier in the country. Fans will also be pleased to see other familiar faces returning in this brand-new tale, such as Ilmeria, who has now taken the role of a teacher for the new alchemists!

KOEI TECMO America is granting a first look into new character designs, never before seen magical paintings and exciting bonus content available through pre-order via a set of new screenshots and artwork.
