Atelier Ayesha’s Cute Witch Returns For Atelier Escha & Logy

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky wouldn’t be a proper sequel to Atelier Ayesha if the game didn’t have some returning characters. Dengeki PlayStation confirmed Wilbell voll Erslied, the witch who hasn’t mastered the broomstick flying spell, is a playable character in Atelier Escha & Logy. Wilbell is 18 in this game (she was 14 in Atelier Ayesha) and has been traveling from place to place. With help from a former friend, Wilbell made a pact with a wind spirit. Gust designed a new beige dress for Wilbell and her pointy witch hat has stars on it.

 

Lucille is a new character and she is Escha’s junior in the Center organization. She’s 14 years old and has been studying medicine. Lucille wears a green dress with a yellow jacket on top of it and a yellow nurse’s cap. She’s also a bit shorter than Wilbell and her blood type is A.

 

Escha and Logy handle alchemy differently so each of them have their own system. Specific details haven’t been revealed, but the game also has a new secret power system where you use points you gathered. These points appear on the map as shiny spots and one area that has them is a field where magma flows freely.

 

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky has a bunch of musicians contributing to the game including: Acrylicstab, Haruka Shimotsuki (also did work on earlier Gust games), Chiriwaka, Kanako Ito, Annabel, Junca Amaoto, Suginami Junior Chorus, Asako Nasu, and Rurutia.

 

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky comes out for PlayStation 3 on June 27 in Japan.

    Wilbell<3
    This game just keeps getting better and better. It feels like Gust is really going all out for it!

  • Manny Being Manny

    Ok, this is the most important news. Now I’m guaranteed to get it even though I was ticked off about the male main character.

    Wibell, my love~ <3 And 18? Be prepared to see a beautiful lady!

    The game sounds very promising thus far. Really can't wait for it, aw.

  • Simon

    funny how a game character has blood type as if that is important. The previous Ayesha game is sorta hard to tell how old some of the characters look, especially Regina looking the same age as Ayesha. I do hope Keith comes back, my favorite character in Ayesha.

    • JustThisOne

      Apparently, blood type is important in Japanese culture because it’s reveals a lot about the person, including how compatible someone is with another person. Think of it something like horoscopes.

      It… also turns out it has it’s very own wiki page. o__o

        I’m AB and that hurts. Most negatives traits are true D:

      • IvanAzure

        I feel like only the negative traits are true for me…

    • IvanAzure

      Well, it’s common in Japan to associate Blood Type with personalities and stuff like that. ^^ People are kinda categorized based on that there actually, which is why it’s very common for them to mention the blood type of anime/manga/game characters. ^^
      Or that’s what my recent contact with some anime stuff told me, not sure if it’s really common in daily life there. :P

      • puchinri

        I can’t remember where I saw the info, but I think I recall it being mentioned that even up to some recent years (well, definitely a decade or so ago) they still referenced it somewhat importantly for arranged marriages? I could be mis-remembering.

        • IvanAzure

          Thanks for the info. ^^ I actually remember seeing something like that…

          • puchinri

            No problem~. Yeah, sorry I don’t have any information on whether or not it’s still used though.

    • Sal

      Since there are more people using alchemy now, I think it’s safe to assume that Keith will come back.

    • Follower_of_Pram

      Picking your blood type in Growlanser at the beginning controls your stats. ‘^’

      Yay little Wilbell returns!

  • MrTyrant

    I knew Wilbell will return, she is like an iconic character for this series. She, Ayesha’s sister and Keithgrif were my mains. Hope some of them return, specially Keith.

    • Nitraion

      Lol keith battle style is the true alchemist style using chemical stuff…
      and he can transform a coin to a bullet.. XD

      • MrTyrant

        He kicks gems in one of his skills too.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Looks great! Ayesha is really turning me to liking the series. Can’t wait to pick it up.

  • Melly Jelly

    yay

  • yalissa

    Wait wait wait wait.
    Escha and Logy handle alchemy DIFFERENTLY? So… Are there going to be two different alchemy systems?
    Because I am very interested in this right now.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    I was wondering who would be the first to return from Ayesha. Little ‘Bell is now 18 and all grown up! What a treat!

    • raymk

      Yes and it amazes me how places have the info up and not the scans of the characters. I guess we’ll have to wait like another 3 or 4 hours before we’ll see them.

      • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

        Use your imagination. I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed when she is revealed though.

        Use your imagination. I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed when she is revealed though.
