Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream drops new story trailer

On January 27th, 2022 Koei Tecmo dropped a new trailer for the upcoming sequel to Atelier Sophie, Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream. Only a day later the game would officially hit gold status.


Atelier Sophie 2, a Turn based JRPG, Atelier seems to have enhanced the battle mechanics of the previous Atelier games.

Something I am excited about is what this message from the team says

“When Sophie sets out on an adventure to find a missing friend and unlock the mystery behind the dream-like world of Erde Wiege, she will have to fight the many monsters that inhabit the land – some of which Atelier fans may recognize from previous entries! For the first time in the series, Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream features a battle system that begins instantly without any load times or separate screens, allowing gameplay to flow seamlessly between exploration and combat. In this new battle system, up to six-party members can join forces for “multi-linked turn-based battles”. These party members will be split into two teams; the “assault team” which consists of the three members in the front, and the “back-up team” which features the three members at the back.”

Having no loading screens between battles is something I have gotten spoiled over and so getting more games like that is going to be amazing! Especially for the Atelier games. I hope this is a staple of the series going forward as it will increase the amount of exploration you can do without having to get bogged down from Loading screens or wait times. Having 6 party members will also make it easier to not leave a favorite character behind!

Atelier Sophie 2: the Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream launches on February 25th, 2022 on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
