Hitting stores on Friday, Atelier Shallie Plus is an update on the PS3 adventure, featuring new content and secrets. It takes new devotees, perhaps those who enjoyed Atelier Sophie (review), or fans of the earlier games in the series on a new journey. It will see familiar faces from other Atelier titles helping heroines Shallistera and Shallotte on their journey through the world of Dusk.
Returning characters who take on a larger role in Atelier Shallie Plus include Escha Malier, the eccentric specialist of old-style alchemy, Logix Ficsario, the down-to-earth alchemist and government official, and the talented Ayesha Altugle, famously known for her remedies and medications. Players can choose any of these characters to join their party as well as experience brand new event scenarios not present in the original Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea.
