KOEI TECMO America Reveals Western Release Date For ATELIER LULUA: THE SCION OF ARLAND
Use the Power of Alchemy to Uncover an Ancient Text and Discover the Hidden Truth of Arland
Burlingame, Calif. – February 7, 2019 – KOEI TECMO America today revealed that the latest entry in GUST Studio’s cherished Atelier franchise, Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland, will release for the Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam® on May 21, 2019 across North America. Atelier Lulua continues the story of the fan-favorite Arland trilogy, set several years after the 2012 release of Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland.
Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland invites players to assume the role of Elmerulia “Lulua” Fryxel, a young aspiring alchemist training under former student turned mentor, Piana. Lulua studies diligently to fulfill her dream of becoming a great alchemist just like her mother, Rorolina Frixell; but during her training Lulua discovers a mysterious Codex, awakening an ancient power within her that enables Lulua to decrypt but a single page – with many more riddles for her to unravel. Players will be tasked with performing actions focused around the core Atelier series gameplay – Gathering, Battle, and Synthesis – to allow them to decipher more of the text, as well as learn exciting new types of alchemy.
Lulua sets off to Arland in the hopes that she can improve her powers and uncover the riddles of the Codex. When arriving, she learns that her mother’s atelier shop has been forced to close. Relying on the help of the Codex, Lulua works hard to save the shop before it is too late. The first steps into her new adventure are filled with excitement; little does Lulua know that Arland is home to many mysteries yet to be awoken.
On their adventure, players will meet a compelling cast of companions, with some familiar faces joining the line-up, including: the most renowned alchemist and mother of Lulua, Rorolina Frixell; the ex-apprentice of Rorona and influential alchemist, Totooria Helmold; keen adventurer and private guardian of Totori, Mimi Houllier Von Schwarzlang; and former knight turned chief of the ‘Guardian Force’, Sterkenburg Cranach.
KOEI TECMO America released a fresh batch of assets today featuring the heart-warming new trailer, the cryptic Codex, dynamic cast of characters, and some of the beautiful environments Lulua will be able to explore.
