Gust is making changes to the Atelier battle system by upping the number of party members to six. In Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky characters are split into front and rear rows. Characters can do support attacks if you have energy in the meter in the bottom right. Monsters still show up on fields and if you strike them on the field you can attack first in battle.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky has two alchemists as protagonists and they can both create items during combat. If you use the Double Draw skill they will use items one after another. Items are powered up when you do a Double Draw and under certain conditions you can make special items.
Other party members have special attacks with flashy attacks.
Auin’s Double Impact
Reifar’s Gun Carnival and Buster Cannon
Special attacks like Logy’s Thunderfall can also be used by support characters. Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is slated for release June 27 on PlayStation 3.
