Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists Basic Game Flow Shown
Gust has provided more details and a selection of screenshots for the upcoming Atelier spin-off Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists. The new details primarily concerned the basic flow of the game, as main protagonist Nelke von Luchetam seeks to grow the village of Vestbalt, enlisting the help of various characters from across the series.
To help grow Vestbalt, Nelke first needs to secure income for the village by managing its various shops. This provides the cash needs to purchase new land and build new facilities, which will in turn provide more money for the village’s coffers. On top of this, Nelke will also go and explore the village’s surroundings in order to attain important materials. These materials can then be used in alchemy by the various alchemists — who can accompany Nelke on her outside expeditions — to synthesise items than can be sold in the stores.
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 at this stage regarding a potential western release.
