Product Description

Atelier Ayesha The Alchemist of Dusk follows the story of Ayesha Altugle, a girl who has been living alone in a secluded workshop ever since her grandfather died and her younger sister went missing a few years ago. She supports herself by making and selling medicine. As the story begins, she finds out that her younger sister IS alive somewhere in the world. Now, she must devote herself to finding her younger sister. Her journey to keep her promise begins.

New story and cast of characters: Ayesha's mission is to find her younger sister, Nio, who went missing after she left home to gather medicinal ingredients, and Ayesha will be supported and helped by those already close to her, as well as new friends she'll meet along the way. This new setting will embrace all the Japanese RPG fans who are looking for a new kind of alchemy RPG! Keep a diary to delve deeper into the story: The new Diary System allows the player to keep a log of Ayesha's activities. Keeping up with the diary, Ayesha will be able to gain more recipes, bonus stats, and items. Atelier Ayesha The Alchemist of Dusk does not have any time restriction on each mission; instead, every mission will be connected and will help determine your success in finding Ayesha's younger sister.

  • Turn-based battle system that emphasizes importance of character positioning and distance from enemies. Support and Assist attacks among your party will play big role in each battle. Place party members wisely and strategize your way to victory!
  • Updated battle system allows players to move behind enemy; attack from the rear to score critical hits! Get familiar with special skills and abilities of each character to maximize battle experience!
  • Updated synthesis system where Ayesha will learn special alchemy skills that she can use to fine-tune the details of the items that she synthesizes for more desirable results!

5.0 out of 5 stars another great addition to the series 4 Oct. 2014

I really enjoy the atelier games, Iris was the first I played and it has come a long way since then. I love the alchemy gathering and time management, this was another great addition to an already brilliant series, that said I prefer the Japanese voices to the English ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid entry in the series. 19 Mar. 2013

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Unlike the previous games, Ayesha has a different approach to Alchemy and to the progression of the game in general.
Alchemy starts off quite random,with skills added as you level which allow you to target specific properties.
I had a lot more difficulty initially with getting good weapons than in the previous games. But a much easier time making "super" weapons for the end game.

Story wise, it's very open. You have a goal "Find your sister" and beyond that you discover everything as you go.Notes are kept in a journal in no particular order and unlike previous games the progression is less linear.
I'd rescued the sister by year 2 , but the game keeps going.

It's an entertaining,fun game, without being spectacular. A completely new world and cast with nothing to do with Rorona,Totori etc. It's no Ni No Kuni (which anyone who wants to experience a JPRG should get) but it will keep you occupied for a couple of weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Enjoyable Game... Recommended for JRPG fans 17 Mar. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a fan of the Atelier Series and I wasnt disappointed
Another great addition with a new story
Even if u are new to the series, I think you will like it... the star of the game is definitely the Item synthesis system which pretty well crafted to be both enjoyable and very rewarding (Alchemy as it is known in the game)
I had a blast with this game !!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its missing something.... 25 Mar. 2013

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played all the PS3 Atelier titles now and this is my least favourite (apart from Rorona; we can chock that up to first try experimentation)

First things first: on its own merits its a good game. Good battle system, nice little story (Bit cloying as always but this is a Gust hallmark) and the synthesis system remains excellent. This is the first installment to have almost total freedom - you have goals to meet, revolving around the mystery of your sisters disappearance, but apart from that you can basically do what you want, which is quite refreshing after the ( still lax compared to Rorona) deadlines of previous titles.

The graphics have got a bit of a boost again too and I do like a lot of the artwork and design.

What lets this game down is its the first PS3 Atelier not set in Arland. We're in a whole new territory here, with whole new characters...and they're a bit bland, in my opinion. Compared to Totori and co. and Sterk and Rorona, I found Ayesha and her friends to be disappointing company. Maybe its because we had three games to get to know the Arland crew.

Apart from Keith (whom I liked) and to a lesser extent, Juris (stereotype but still entertaining), Ayesha's cast is just plain inferior.

Also, what gives with not being able to make your own weapons and armour? This is game that revolves almost entirely around crafting. Now you have to pick up your togs from random monster fights? No thanks.

So all in all, a bit of a lacklustre effort I think. I'd rather play Totori or Meruru again.
