Atelier Online Delayed to 2018

This is Niche Imports. In this column, we regularly cover games that haven’t been announced for western audiences yet. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Koei Tecmo and NHN PlayArt have announced a delay for Atelier Online.

The game will forgo its planned winter 2017 release for one sometime next year, in Japan.

NHN PlayArt noted the reason behind delaying the game was to further expand modes of play for more users, improve upon their infrastructure tech, and polish the overall quality of the game.

Once released, Atelier Online will be available for both iOS and Android devices.

  • DizzyGear

    Prolly more like Atelier Gacha.

  • This is Mugen Tenshin

    If it’s anything like Fire Emblem, then I don’t care as much

  • CRES

    I don’t think it will be. Atelier always had a stronger focus on crafting than RPG elements (Although, my favorite games in the franchise have been the ones that had a nice balance between the two)..

    It’s most likely going to be the case where every gather spot you need to wait X number of minutes or hours or whatever, the same with Alchemy. Thus the microtransactions come in the form of items to skip said waiting, rather than trying to get that legendary 5 star character that you have less than 1% chance of getting.

  • Mobile MMOs is the ultimate cancer.

  • FRAN

    suck my dick cunt

  • This is Mugen Tenshin

    So you were a trap after all…

  • Sorry but I am not a faggot like you but you can suck my dick if you want. :)

  • ExplodingPrinny

    C’mon man, you KNOW it would have Gatcha for bikini costumes.

  • CRES

    Or you’d have to spend “days” collecting enough materials to craft the legendary “Bikini Armor” equipment. (or just spend money to get those materials instantly)

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    I really wish the series would just die already. It has become so mediocre.
