Trailer for Atelier Ayesha, the new entry in the Atelier series. This game doesn't actually have any connection with the past trilogy (Rorona, Totori and Meruru). It takes place in a new world with new characters and gameplay system. In fact, the whole alchemist thing changed to herbalist so Ayesha, the main character, will have to center her recipes and creations mostly on hundreds and hundreds (possibly thousands) of plants.
The story revolves around Ayesha losing her sister in some ruins and her going in an adventure to find her while still taking care of her workshop. She will make friends and enemies in what promises to be quite a beautiful game. Tecmo-Koei (the new owners of the franchise in the west) seem to have decided to publish the game here without the original Japanese voice-acting, which is sad but I'm still excited about it.
The game comes out exclusively for PS3 on March 5, 2013.
