Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have shared Atelier Sophie 2 details for Kati (Katrina), Gnome, and Pirka – newcomers arriving in the hotly anticipated alchemy sequel.
Here’s a rundown on the new characters:
In Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, Sophie uses the town of Roytale – the only town in Erde Wiege – as a base of operations as she searches for her missing friend Plachta. When she arrives in Roytale, Sophie will befriend Kati, the owner of the Crystal Sparkle Pavilion, her kind hearted employee Gnome, as well as Pirka, the owner of Pirka’s Emporium, and these eccentric characters quickly offer her their services.
At the Crystal Sparkle Pavilion, Sophie will be able to accept a wide range of requests from the local townspeople, and through completing these requests, she will earn rewards and raise her reputation. As her reputation increases, Kati will offer advancement quests that, once successfully completed, will increase her Adventurer Grade – allowing her to take on more challenging requests with greater rewards. On the other hand, Pirka’s Emporium is a unique shop that can replenish and duplicate items – both important services for alchemists to utilise alongside synthesis.
As Sophie progresses through her journey in Atelier Sophie 2, scenarios will unlock for a variety of characters in Erde Wiege. Through these events, players will be able to learn of each character’s goals and dreams, as well as raise their friendship level with the character – leading to new skills being unlocked. Each character has their own unique scenarios: Alette dreams of getting rich quickly so she asks Sophie to help her learn alchemy, whereas Ramizel feels like she isn’t able to live up to everyone’s high expectations. Can Sophie help Ramizel find the success she’s looking for?
