As some of you may already know, the Atelier Ayesha sequel titled Atelier Escha & Logy: The Alchemists of the Sky and Dusk is on it’s way to Japan later this year
and very likely everywhere else the next. As an interesting twist, this new game features two protagonists, not just one as with the previous games.
Escha is an adorable pink haired 15 year-old girl who is on a journey follows her dreams. Each game thus far has introduced us to a new novice alchemist who has filled a certain place in our hearts, and Escha looks to do just the same as Rorona, Totori, Meruru, and Ayesha. She has inherited knowledge of the secret arts of alchemy from her mother. She has the greatest of potential, but has only just begun. This is where we meet her.
Escha’s story looks like it’ll remind players of past games. It will revolve around her everyday life as well as misadventures that lead to lighthearted events.
Logy is the 18 year-old male protagonist, something new to the series. Logy hails from one of the central cities from which he studied swordplay as well as apparently basic alchemy. When in battle, he’ll be using both styles.
Logy’s side of the story focuses on the traveling the world and learning its secrets. This path will play more similar to the average mainstream JRPG as apposed to this series usual cheery nature. For gamers unfamiliar with the series, Logy’s path is just the one for you!
Wilbell voll Erslied
For those who have already enjoyed the wonders of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Wilbell should be a familiar face. As a bit of an entrepreneur, item finder, and witch-in-training all wrapped up into one, the now 18 year-old Wilbell has been traveling around the lands. Seeing how she has yet to mastered the art of broom flying, she’s been doing it the old fashioned way. Sometime during the year gap between games, Willbell was able to successfully make a pact with a wind spirit with the aid of an old friend. This should be an interesting mechanic in battle, as Winbell is in fact a playable character once again!
Least but not least, we come to Lucille Ernella. She is a 14 year-old student of medicine and Escha’s junior in Center. She might be small, but she means business. She can restore your party’s health with her skills and follow up by throwing around syringes. Always fun to find a character that looks up to our young alchemists.
