Dengeki PlayStation revealed the first details about Atelier Asha: Alchemist of Twilight Ground. Asha, a 17 year old girl, is the lead character in the PlayStation 3 RPG. She works alone after her grandfather passed away and her younger sister Nio vanished while picking herbs.
One day, Asha spots Nio in ancient ruins. Believing her sister is alive, Asha sets out on an adventure. A key theme in Atelier Asha is getting back on your feet after a sad event.
Atelier Asha has a new system dubbed memory collection where Asha keeps a diary about her quest to find Nio. Players will be able to read the diary and see how Asha grew into an adult. Players will see familiar fairies from the Atelier series in this game too. Details about the battle system are still coming out, but what we know now is the game will use a cost turn system and the cost per attack depends on how far away an enemy is.
Atelier Asha is slated for release on June 28.
