Story is a big part of the Atelier games and Gust improved how it’s presented with Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. A "!" icon appears on the map wherever there is an event so you can walk over to see it. This game has two protagonists and you can see story events from either Escha or Logy’s perspective.
When you’re exploring the field, there is a new kind of event to fulfill. A gauge in the top left hand corner increases when you defeat monsters and collect items. Get the meter up over 100% and you can trigger a field event. You might get a special recipe or engage strong monsters that aren’t usually on the field that carry rare items.
Gust improved how the events scenes look with more expressive characters. Micie Sun Mussemburg, Katla Larchica, and Solle Grumman are shown below. Atelier Escha & Logy is slated for release on June 27 for PlayStation 3.
