    Celebrate 25 Years Of Atelier Magic With Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg

    In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the beloved Atelier game series, KOEI TECMO and developer GUST Studios revealed a return to their magical roots with Atelier Marie Remake: Alchemist of Salburg. This re-imagined take on their classic title includes all-new graphics along with plenty of new elements to enhance the gaming experience.
    Atelier Marie Remake: Alchemist of Salburg is currently in development and will be available digitally on July 17th, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 Computer Entertainment System, PlayStation 4 Computer Entertainment System, and Windows PC via Steam.

    In Atelier Marie Remake: Alchemist of Salburg, players are reintroduced to Marie, a struggling student at the Royal Academy of Magic whose teacher gifts her an alchemy atelier for her upcoming graduation exam. Marie’s ultimate goal is to create an item within five years that will satisfy her teacher, but to do this, she’ll need to improve her alchemy skills, gather materials, and earn money for reference books and tools, as well as hire adventurers. Where to start is up to the player, as they’ll be able to navigate the game at their own pace in this carefree adventure, with the ultimate goal to graduate from the academy.

    All new graphics brighten the screen using modern techniques to bring Marie and her friends to life. Character and event stills are newly illustrated, with 2D animations of character stills being freshly implemented. 3D models of characters and stages are also being added, along with cute chibi-style characters ready to explore.

    In addition, this Atelier series origin story not only maintains the simple and highly flexible playability of the original game, but the tutorial and guidance of moving around town and collecting items have also been expanded and modified to help the remake become even more comfortable and easier to play. This also includes improved mini-game controls and gameplay along with balance adjustments and enhanced comfort and presentation of both syntheses and battles.

    Many new elements have also been added for fans of the original version as well as those new to the Atelier series. In Unlimited Mode, players can now take their time without the deadline of needing to graduate in five years, benefitting those who want to enjoy a relaxing atelier life without being driven by deadlines. Additional social events have also been added, enabling players to interact with the main characters, and uncover new aspects and charms that were not included in the original game. Also added is the always helpful “Professor Ingrid’s Tasks”. These tasks help act as a guide, as the question “what should I do next” can be solved immediately, a unique feature for RPGs with this high degree of freedom.

    KOEI TECMO America also announced that a special Atelier Marie Remake: Alchemist of Salburg Digital Deluxe Edition will be available at launch. The Digital Deluxe includes all of the content and DLC of the base game along with original “Atelier Marie Plus” content, an extra BGM pack, and the “Another Look” costume set.
