Koei Tecmo just released a commemorative video for the Atelier 25th anniversary, including every game in the franchise from 1997’s Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg to the latest title, Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream. If you notice near the end of the video, there’s an unfilled frame that seems to hint at a new game coming in the series. Earlier, Koei Tecmo revealed in their Tokyo Game Show lineup that series developer Gust is announcing a new title on September 16th.
At this time, there have already been a total of 23 main games in the Atelier franchise and several side games.
