Both Atelier Sophie 2 and Tales of Arise will be getting new collaboration items, such as weapon skins and accessories. Tales of Arise will receive three items from Atelier Sophie 2, and vice versa. The collaboration items will appear sometime before the end of April 2022 as part of a free update. Additionally, Koei Tecmo uploaded the opening theme song trailer for Atelier Sophie 2.
The free collaboration DLC for Tales of Arise will include two weapon skins and one accessory item. Once downloaded, players can equip a Hunting Rifle skin for Shionne and Sophie’s magic staff for Dohalim. Sophie’s flower hairpin will be available as an accessory item, but it’s unconfirmed if all characters can equip it. Atelier Sophie 2 will then get three accessories referencing various characters from Tales of Arise. These include Alphen’s mask, Shionne’s tiara, and a large Owl King doll.
You can get a better look at how each item will look in-game in the screenshots below:
Notably, Shionne’s tiara and Sophie’s hairpin were shown in an earlier collaboration illustration that featured characters from both titles. Koei Tecmo revealed the accessories during an Atelier Sophie 2 pre-launch live stream on February 22, 2022. The company also showed off the official theme song trailer for the game as well as other planned DLC, including swimsuit costumes, additional scenarios, and more.
