Koei Tecmo and Gust have announced when Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland will release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
This next game continues the Arland trilogy with an adventure that is set several years after Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland.
It follows Elmerulia “Lulua” Fryxel, young aspiring alchemist training under former student turned mentor, Piana. She works hard in her alchemy studies in an effort to live up to the legacy of her mother, Rorolina Frixell.
But, when she discovers a mysterious Codex during her training, Lulua awakens an ancient power within her that allows her to decrypt but a single page – with many more riddles for her to unravel.
You must perform actions focused around the core Atelier series gameplay – Gathering, Battle, and Synthesis – to decipher more of the text, learning new types of alchemy on the way.
After setting off to Arland to improve her powers and uncover the riddles of the Codex, Lulua discovers that her mother’s atelier shop has been forced to close. Relying on help from the Codex, she must work hard to save the shop before it’s too late.
Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland will release for Nintendo Switch in North America on May 21st, and across Europe on May 24th.
