Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World is the latest installment in the Atelier franchise developed by Gust and published in the West by Koei Tecmo. In a departure from the past titles, it focused on town building rather than alchemy, although it still retains the familiar elements of resource gathering, battles, and synthesis.
The player takes on the role of Nelke, a young noblewoman who longs to become an alchemist, but lacks the talent. After she is appointed the governor of a frontier village, it falls to her to develop it into a thriving city. Legendary alchemists from the previous Atelier games come together to help her along the way.
As an early purchase bonus, the Town Building 5-Item Set will be available as a free download via PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, and Steam for two weeks after launch. In other words, pre-ordering isn’t necessary, but purchasing the game within the two-week window is. The five items contained in the pack are:
- Gust 25th Anniversary BGM Pack 1
- Gust 25th Anniversary BGM Pack 2
- Atelier 20th Anniversary Appreciation House
- Mysterious Alchemist Statue
Limited Edition ($99.99)
