We’ve gotten the first look at the new protagonists, development platforms, and some new details in Atelier Lidy & Soeur via Famitsu.
Featured above, the two protagonists Lidy Marlen and Soeur Marlen, a calm older sister and a young, energetic sister – respectfully. The game takes place in a mysterious painting the two sisters discover in the capital city of their home kingdom.
The game is also confirmed for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and the Nintendo Switch sometime this winter.
3D models have received a big visual upgrade to what the series has seen before. The synthesis mechanics have gotten a big upgrade via new “activation” items, while battles now pan out through combining two characters together into pairs. Synthesis is also possible in battles. Details on the story itself are otherwise scant, however this could be the finale of the Mysterious timeline.
