Product Details:

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: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk features a turn-based battle system that emphasizes the importance of character positioning and distance from the enemies. Support and Assist attacks among your party will play a big role in each battle. Place your party members wisely and strategize your way to victory!

Back Attacks and unique character skills: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk has an updated battle system that allows players to move behind the enemy; attack them from the rear to score critical hits! Get familiar with the special skills and abilities of each character to maximize your battle experience!

Alchemy gets even more exciting by focusing on the process: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk features an 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Game, but too similar to Rorona I loved Atelier Rorona, Totori, and Meruru. So when I heard this game was coming out, I was very excited. But when I got it and started playing, I had a lot mixed feelings about this game. Pros: -The soundtrack is amazing. To be honest, I think Atelier Ayesha has the best soundtrack in all of the Atelier Series (that I have played), beating Rorona, Iris, and Violet. But that is a matter of personal preference. -The graphic is beautiful. The character designs and environment have a very pretty and clean look to them. Cons: -This game is VERY similar to Atelier Rorona. The levels look the same, the way you move throughout the world map, the battle system, the synthesis/alchemy system, a lot of things were pretty much like Atelier Rorona. The story of Ayesha even takes place over a course of 3 years, just like Atelier Rorona. -The voices of the characters. English Dub is the only option for this game. Personally, I don't mind English Dub too much, but there were many times where I think the English cast sounded too dull or emotionless. Overall Opinion: If you have not played Atelier Rorona, then I would highly suggest you buy Rorona instead of Ayesha. They are very similar, but in terms of gameplay and character development, Rorona does everything better. But if you have played Atelier Rorona but wanted something different, then I would suggest you pass on Atelier Ayesha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ehhhh..... To be fair I am only about three hours into the game and so far I'm feeling a little disconnected from it. It's visuals and sound are as expected from GUST (meaning beautiful) but as far as narrative and game play it feels unbalanced. Several things have been tinkered with some good (stacking of items) and some bad (you have to push X how many times to make an item?) and some that are neither good nor bad (neat, instant world map) Meruru was a bit of an energetic girly girl, where as Ayesha (so far) is more of a bubble head, or Sarah from Star Ocean Last hope. Three hours in its not a bad game, but whether or not it's a good game the jury is still out for me. I would recommend this game to both new comers and those new the series. Those who adored Meruru are in for a bit of a shock so be warned it as it isn't alike in terms of cute, bold pastles and over the top girly sugar jpop. Perhaps there is the problem? Meh.
