Arc of Alchemist Shows Its Base-Building Aspects
Idea Factory International released new screenshots for Arc of Alchemist, showing the base-building elements in the game. The base acts as an area for Quinn Bravesford and her soldiers to rest and reorganise ahead of their next trip into the massive desert.
As players go through the game, they will be able to upgrade their base, adding and improving a range of facilities. Things that can be done at the base include adjusting party formation and AI behaviour, trading items, and training characters to learn new skills and upgrade existing ones.
Arc of Alchemist follows Quinn Bravesford and her allies as they search the great desert, looking for a device that can reverse the planet’s desertification and save humanity. The western release will feature both English and Japanese voice acting, with both versions including all of the additions made for the game’s Japanese Nintendo Switch release, such as the ability for players to freely switch between party members. The game will be released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in North America on January 30, 2020, with the European release following a day later on January 31, 2020.
