Koei Tecmo announced that the very first title in the Atelier series, Atelier Marie, will get a new smartphone release in Japan as Atelier Marie plus: The Alchemist of Salburg sometime in the coming days.
Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg is the series’ first entry that originally released in Japan in May 1997. It revolves around Marie who starts out known as the student to have the worst grades in Salburg Academy history. While she starts out pretty terribly, she continues to constantly work on improving herself.
After countless failures, her instructor Ingrid decides to go with a different approach by allowing her to open her own Atelier to practice alchemy outside of the academy while continuing her studies. Marie is given five years to create an item using her own skills, and if satisfactory, she will get to graduate when the five years are done.
Atelier Marie has all the staple features we’ve come to know from the series with battles, requests, item synthesis, and more. The game has 7 unique endings that are determined by the player’s actions throughout the game. Its story is also fully-voiced in Atelier Marie Plus.
Atelier Marie Plus: The Alchemist of Salburg will release in Japan sometime in the near future for iOS and Android.
