Atelier Escha & Logy Begins A Series Of Countdown Videos

By Sato . June 18, 2013 . 3:00pm

The release of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is less than a couple of weeks away, and Gust have started a series of character profile videos called the Atelier Escha & Logy Countdown Festival. In the first video featuring one of the game’s protagonists, Escha Malier, director Yoshito Okamura shares info along with a look at some in-game scenes.



The video starts out with a message from Okamura, saying that some of the info has already been revealed, but he’d like to take this opportunity to summarize it while showing new footage, prior to the game’s release.


Prior to being assigned to help the development team, Escha helped out as an assistant in the work of alchemy. In the above footage, it shows Logy and Escha greeting each other, as they’ve both been officially assigned to the team at the same time.


When starting the game with Escha’s story, it begins with a very familiar feeling that many of you might have experienced, such as the laid back day-to-day events in past Atelier games. There will be many other events that will occur after doing things such as while going out to prepare for alchemy or after Logy makes a weapon. Okamura hopes that players will get to enjoy Escha’s story just as they’ve played the past titles.


As an alchemist, Escha will be contributing on the battlefield using various items to help take out enemies and support allies. However, when it comes to raw combat talent, Escha is still only an alchemist and is just a regular girl compared to Logy.


However, that doesn’t mean Escha will be helpless and rely on Logy to do all the fighting. Okamura notes that as Escha gains experience, she will also gain quite the advantage in her ability to utilize items, and will arguably be better than Logy. Both protagonists will have access to items that can only be used by them, which will also play a big role in Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky.


Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky will be released in Japan on June 27th for PLayStation 3.

    FFFFF~. Oh goodness, Escha is just too cute! Ohkay, tis official. I ship them. Sexy biseinen (he’s older than eighteen, right?) and cute, fun gal? Yup.

    I’m more excited for the game than I was before, and I think the other character videos will just help that excitement. I need to get Ayesha back from my friend and try for other endings to get more hype. >u<
    (And maybe play some of the older games.)

      The Escha & Logy PlayView is free on the JP PSN. It has character introductions and lots of art to look at, as well as showing off a lot of super moves.

      • puchinri

        Oh, cool! I need to go check that out~! Thanks for the info. ^u^

    • supervamp

      I wish we could have gotten a more serious looking female character honestly, I’m tired of seeing girls like rorona and totori.As cute as they are i’d like someone like mel not exactly the same in design but just tough not so girly girl.

      • puchinri

        I partially agree. In general, a more mature or serious lead would be fun. But at the same time, Ayesha’s design (and personality to an extent) reminded me a lot of classic and some recent spin-off titles, and I really adored that. Escha feels way older than Rorona and Totori to me (thank goodness), and while her design isn’t like Ayesha+Classic stuff, her personality does lean that way a bit and I rather like that.

        But, in the future, it would be fun to see more different protagonists like they had before. I think after they get used to harkening back to the classic stuff (with gameplay, design, etc) we’ll get there.

  • Saculogir

    Man I haven’t been this hype for a Gust game since Mana Khemia 2. It looks so polished in combining all the classic Atelier features across the franchise. Can’t wait to play it.

  • Lemon

    Though brief it may be, going by Escha and Logy’s interaction and dialogue in the trailer, I have a feeling I’m gonna very much enjoy watching them as they journey together and get to know each other better. Whether their relationship turns sibling-like, or strictly-platonic-best-friends, or as romantic partners, I’m keen to find out.

  • Wanna buy this game.

  • Escha is way to cute! >_< <3 =^_^= :3 "Huff huff"

    • grevlinghore

      She`s got some nice Jigglypuffs at least.

  • aquagon

    And from something SpaceDrake posted over at the NISA forums, it seems the game is going to be pretty good: Famitsu gave it a 10/9/9/8 (36), which is the highest score an Atelier game has ever gotten since Marie.

    Here’s the source for that:

      Wow, that’s fantastic~! Makes me want to read the reviews for that.
      Hopefully I can find those. I hope Gust gets more high scores (and reviews) after this entry~.

      • grevlinghore

        Please provide a link to the review if you find it, I`d be interested in reading it too :)

        • puchinri

          Sure! I’ve done some hunting and have come up empty-handed so far, but I will definitely post again (or edit this) if I find a link~. ^u^

          • grevlinghore

            Nothing yet? : /

  • Ryumoau

    Hope this gets a psn release like Ayesha. I don’t plan to spend full price on these low budget rpgs, but i like splitting the price with a friend.

  • Setsu Oh

    i dont like how the animations are following the same rhythm regardless of the mood of the character. very ps1. do not like.
