Dengeki PlayStation and Famitsu revealed the two protagonists of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky in their latest issue.
Escha (pronounced Eska) is a 15 year-old girl (above) who follows her dreams. She has been handed over the family secrets of alchemy from her mother. She is still studying the ways of alchemy and is still considered a novice at the arts.
The 18-year-old Logix is said to have been dispatched from his studies at a central city to be part of what’s considered a drop out development squad. He uses a combination of alchemy and swordsmanship in combat. He seems to not know much about Escha’s family secrets of alchemy.
We recently reported that you’ll have a choice of picking between Escha and Logix as two protagonists. The main story will be the same, regardless of which character you choose, but there will be different events and multiple endings, including some that can only be seen depending on the protagonist.
It is unknown as far as how many years have gone by since the previous games, but we’ll be seeing characters from the past series in an older form as well.
Additionally, the support system seen in previous Atelier games will be making a return. So far, it has been revealed that it will have the same offensive support by timing attacks with allies and also a defensive part which allows characters to cover each other by taking the damage on their behalf.
Finally, this week’s magazine leaks also reveal that Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky will have a ‘Memory’ system, which will make it easier for new players to understand the Item Synthesis system and other features.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is in development for PlayStation 3 and slated for release on June 27.
