Hakuoki developer Idea Factory is teaming up with Atelier developer Gust to make an otome game. Mary is the main character in Atelier Elkrone: Dear for Otomate and she just inherited her grandmother’s atelier. She meets Popote and begins working at the studio.
Atelier Elkrone has a recipe system like the other Atelier titles, but instead of collecting ingredients players collect cards. While synthesis is a key part of the game, Atelier Elkrone is really about watching Mary fall in love with one of the dudes in the above video.
Atelier Elkrone: Dear for Otomate comes out on March 29 for PSP.
