Koei Tecmo and GUST have revealed more details about Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World, as well as the Town Building 5-Item Set pre-order bonuses.
Those that pre-order the 20th Anniversary title – or buys it within the first two weeks after it launches – will receive the Town Building 5-Item Set.
This includes the Gust 25th Anniversary Background Music Pack 1, Gust 25th Anniversary Background Music Pack 2, the Atelier 20th Anniversary Appreciation House, the Mysterious Alchemist Statue, and an additional resident, Gust-chan.
In order to successfully build a new town in Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World, Nelke will need to explore Westwald’s surrounding lands to gather raw materials. These can then be used by the town’s alchemists to synthesize into goods that you can sell.
You can have up to five characters in your adventure party, in either Attack or Support roles. While exploring you will need to keep an eye on the Action Gauge, as running through an area too quickly will rapidly decrease it – risking that you miss items and end up with fewer rewards.
There may be monstrous enemies on your routes who must be defeated before you can continue. You will need to call on attack and support skills to topple them, that, as you deal damage, will build the Burst Gauge and Drive Gauge – letting you unleash more powerful abilities.
Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in North America on March 26th and across Europe on March 29th.
