Set against a vibrant background reminiscent of a medieval European town, the Atelier series’ latest standalone installment follows the exploits of a young novice Alchemist, Sophie, who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic book imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold all the secrets to the art of Alchemy, even going on to become Sophie’s mentor. As Sophie improves her Alchemy skills throughout the story she unravels forgotten memories, and eventually sets out to uncover the strange tale of the book’s origin
Last month, we learned Koei Tecmo were preparing both Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book and Nights of Azure for a PC release via Steam. Now, an update has confirmed the Windows debut will also offer some bonuses previously included in the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita releases as DLC. In addition, a bundle will be available that offers both games for 20% off the normal price will be available.
People picking up Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book will receive a number of add-ons. The Hidden Archive map will be available, providing access to an extra dungeon. The Gust Special BGM and Atelier Series Special BGM Packs, which offer extra background music, come with it. Plachta’s Aqua Suit, Lady Saber, Mascoty, Saint Knight, Silver Tail, and Violage Dollmake costumes are also included. While many of these items were previously free add-ons, the Dollmake costumes were $2.999 each and Atelier Series Special BGM Pack cost $4.99.
