If there’s one series that has continually delivered the old-school goods for JRPG fanatics, it’s the Atelier series. It has maintained a turn-based combat mechanic throughout the years and has also provided players with an increasingly in-depth item creation system. Alchemy has always been a central focus of the franchise and those interested in experimenting and micromanagement usually get a lot of entertainment out of any given entry. Now, hot on the heels of Atelier Meruru comes Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk , which features a new protagonist, new story and an updated battle system.

Known as Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Twilight Land in Japan, the game focuses on Ayesha Altugle, an alchemist who is very much a loner. She spends most of her time in her workshop, creating her special medicines and unfortunately, suffering from memory loss. However, when her sister, Nio, goes out to gather materials one day and never returns, Ayesha must act. She resolves to find and save her sister, who is oddly trapped in an unknown dimension. Hence, it’s a quest to retrieve both her lost sister and her lost memory so hopefully, the storyline will be worth experiencing.
