Koei Tecmo has confirmed that Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream has sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide, which includes physical and digital sales.
That news was covered in the publisher’s latest financial report, which tallies their sales figures up until 31st March 2022.
This next chapter from GUST Studios stars returning alchemist Sophie Neuenmuller and is set “shortly after” her adventure in 2016’s Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.
After leaving her hometown of Kirchen Bell, Sophie and Plachta discover a huge tree identical to one that Plachta had seen in an earlier dream. As they step closer to it, a mysterious vortex pulls them inside.
Awakening beneath The Dream Tree to find herself in a peculiar dream-like world called Erde Wiege, Sophie is saved by an unfamiliar face – Alette Claretie, who dreams of one day discovering a treasure that can only be located in Erde Wiege. However, Sophie realises that Plachta is nowhere to be found.
When Sophie and Alette return to Roytale – the only town in Erde Wiege – Olias Enders approaches them and claims to know a girl called Plachta, offering to guide them to her atelier on the outskirts of town. Once they arrive, Sophie claims not to know this new girl. Who is this new Plachta, and what is her relationship with Sophie’s best friend?
As you search for answers on your adventure, you will have to fight the many monsters that call the lands of Erde Wiege home. As soon as you encounter an enemy in the field, the battle will start instantly without any load times or separate screens, which is a first for the Atelier series.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream is now available at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
