The Atelier series is well known for the vast amount of games in its library, and western fans won't be waiting much longer to experience the newest entry in the series! Koei Tecmo has announced that Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland will be available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on May 21st, 2019!

Taking place several years after Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland, Atelier Lulua follows the adventures of Elmerulia "Lulua" Fryxel, an aspiring alchemist who wishes to one day be as great as her mother, Rorolina Frixell. One day, Lulua discovers a mysterious Codex called The Alchemy Riddle, which can only be read and understood by Lulua, for unknown reasons. Using The Alchemy Riddle to her advantage, Lulua heads off into Arland, only to discover that her mothers Atelier is being threatened with closure!. Now, with The Alchemy Riddle in hand, and her mothers Atelier at stake, what new adventures await Lulua? We'll have to wait until May to find out!

Exploration in Atelier Lulua is similar to Atelier Totori. Players will discover new maps by exploring and deciphering entries in the Alchemy Riddle. By battling monsters and finding new collectibles, players will increase the "Exploration Percentage" for an area. Once it reaches 100%, players will be able to more easily find high quality and rare materials.

Exploration isn't the only thing revamped in Atelier Lulua. A new synthesis element called "Awakening Effect" has been added to the game, which is a hidden effect from the original component. By synthesizing the item with another containing the Awakening Effect, it's possible to creat items with exciting new elements and attributes, completely different from standard synthesizing! With tons of new and different ingredients and recipes, Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland promises to be a fantastic adventure for Atelier fans and newcomers alike!

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is set to release on May 21st for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Stay tuned to RPGFan for more news and info on your favorite RPGs!
