IGN has the first look at a new Tales of Arise and Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream collaborative update. Since both series are commemorating their 25th anniversary, a set of collaborative items will be made available in each game through updates.
Tales of Arise, Atelier Sophie 2 collaboration pack
Updates for each game have not yet been confirmed, and it is not clear if they will be free or if they will require a purchase. This collaboration pack includes a variety of things, the first of which we can disclose is Sophie’s Flower Hair Clip that allows players to dress the Arise character of their choosing with a Sophie touch.
IGN revealed that on the same note, players of Atelier Sophie 2 will have access to the Tales of Arise Collaboration Accessories set, which includes Alphen’s Iron Mask, which may be attached to any Atelier Sophie 2 character of their choosing.
The mask, which was created by Rinwell, Law, and Kisara, can be also seen.
As per the report, Yuugen, one of the artists working on Atelier Sophie 2, stated that having four illustrators collaborate on a single picture resulted in a piece with a lot of unnoticed depth. Artist Mel Kishida, on the other hand, stated that Blue Reflection is distinct from the other games since it takes place in a contemporary setting and that they intended to embrace this dissonance.
The final preview of Atelier Sophie 2
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream is coming to PS4, Switch, and PC (Steam). Between Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book and Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, this 25th-anniversary installment takes place.
Even if players haven’t played the prior game, a synopsis should help anyone grasp it. Those who have already played it will be able to relive the love and secrets between Sophie and Plachta.
As IGN stated, the story is set in Erde Wiege’s dreamland. This intriguing new universe created by Elvira features the town Roytale, populated by individuals from all over time, past and future.
This makes it easy to guess characters like Plachta, the alchemist who looks similar to the doll Plachta, or Ramizel, given their same name. It’s fun to envision these theories being true and imagine how these individuals would interact daily if they lived together. The characters in the game are aware of this, and the tale progresses as they interact in subtle and ambiguous ways.
