Fans of the Atelier series are finally getting a peek at the future of Atelier with new gameplay elements for the upcoming title Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland when it launches later this year.
As the launch of Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland quickly approaches, Koei Tecmo and Gust have revealed new gameplay elements for their upcoming title, which includes the story elements you will experience, but also some brand new ways to experience synthesis and item gathering in the same exact process.
As you adventure back into Arland, you’ll find a codex Lulua has stumbled upon, allowing her to unlock a variety of new and exciting recipes, which, in turn, will help her get through her wild and exciting adventure. These new systems combine the quality and trait systems; allowing for items to take on characteristics that have never been seen before in the series. This newest addition to the series also includes the ability to embrace crafting unimaginable items using the elements and boost items from the ‘Mysterious’ trilogy, which gives items all new and powerful abilities that weren’t possible in saga’s such the ones in Arland or the Dusk Sea itself.
One of these new elements includes the Awakened Effect, which allows players to use an item in a mix, resulting in a secondary element on an item. Combine a Fire Damage Awakened Effect material with a Thunder Bomb, and you’ll get a bomb that takes the best of both Fire Damage and the Thunder Bomb itself for one heck of an explosive show. This is only one example we’ve been given on just how this system itself will work.
Along with the recent announcement revealing gameplay details, our friends at Koei Tecmo America have also revealed a Limited Edition version of Atelier Lulia: The Scion of Arland, which will be available exclusively through the NISA Online Store. You can view the details down below:
