Atelier Liddy & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting Headed to Switch This Winter in Japan

The next Atelier title seems to be Switch bound, and we’ve got the introductory details you need to get hyped.

Atelier Liddy & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting has been revealed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch this Winter. Featuring two protagonists, Liddy & Soeur follows two sisters of the Marlen family; the quiet older sister Liddy (cv; Maria Naganawa), and the energetic younger sister Soeur (cv; by Hikari Akao). They run a small atelier together in Melveille (the capital of Adalett), and discover a painting that contains a mysterious world. The variety of paintings you can enter will rise as your atelier rank does, with the game trying to maintain a feeling of adventure while still keeping its core “Atelier-ness.”

Combination battles are the name of the game in Liddy & Soeur, and they play out with three pairs of characters in a party. You’ll command the characters in the front, while the rear characters will act automatically.

Using a synthesis system much like Firis’, but with the additional inclusion of activation items, Atelier Liddy & Soeur is looking to take a proper step forward for the series. It includes a Battle Mix system for using synthesis in battle, though it’ll be more simple than traditional methods.

Sound good?

Well, first-print copies will include DLC that uses costumes to change the characters into Marie from Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg and Elie from Atelier Elie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2. You might want to get on ordering this one quickly if that’s for you. 😉

Priced at 7,300 yen, with a limited edition also available for 10,300 yen, Atelier Liddy & Soeur: Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Winter in Japan.

Are you up for it?

    That’s exciting, I managed to have too many games to play to pick up any of the Dusk series and I’m still working on Meruru on the Vita. So, if this comes as soon as next year, I’ll likely pick it up 🙂 I would support Switch being a JRPG box in the vein of my Vita.
