Gust Announces Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists
Japanese developer Gust has announced Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists: Atelier of a New Land, a new spin-off to its long-running Atelier series. The game is a town-building RPG starring a young noblewoman name Nelke. Nelke is named director of the remote village of Vestbalt and tasked with overseeing its development.
Players can develop the town by placing down buildings, then earning money to reinvest and place more buildings. Assisting Nelke in this endeavour are legendary alchemists from across the Atelier series including Meruru, Marie, and Sophie.
Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists is being developed for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch. The game is set to be released later this year in Japan, with there being no news regarding a western release.
Sounds much more interesting than the recent entries. I’m excited by the return to town-building like they had in Meruru.
