Atelier Sophie 2 is going to introduce a number of new characters to the series, and two of them will be Alette Claretie and Olias Enders. The former is a “procurer,” while the latter is a bodyguard. Both of them come to Sophie’s aid after she appears in Erde Wiege.
Alette is one of the first characters Sophie will meet in Atelier Sophia 2. She’s a treasure hunter looking for items. However, she finds our heroine instead. After that, the two of them meet Olias in Roytale. He provides the first real lead on Plachta in this new world. However, the Alchemist Plachta that he knows is different from the one that appeared throughout the Atelier Mysterious trilogy.
Here’s a closer look at Alette.
And here’s how Olias looks in Atelier Sophie 2.
In addition to the new Atelier Sophie 2 characters, new alchemy details came up. Panel synthesis is returning, with elements playing a part to add effects and make better items. People will also be able to apply catalysts to make it easier to make panels fit. You can use the Assist Skill too to determine if Sophie or Plachta is working on the current item.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam on February 25, 2022.
