The latest Dengeki PlayStation has details on six more Atelier Firis characters, with two of them notable as returning alchemists.
While it’s not clear how the following characters will be involved in the game (it’s not specified if they’re playable or not), it looks like four new characters will be coming to Atelier Firis – bringing along with them past alchemist focal points Escha and Logy.
First on the introduction ballot is Kai Holthouse, a 25 year old sailor hailing from Flussheim (the lake town). A heard worker, he tends to dote on his younger sister Mea despite how she frustrates him. His sister Mea is a 12 year old tomboy who manages a shop, but can often be found skipping off work to go fishing (much to Kai’s dismay).
Next up we’ve got Kirsche Littel, a 10 year old alchemist and the youngest person to ever pass the alchemist certification exam. Hailing from Flocke (the snow village) her behavior comes across as wise and enlightened, and she often worries she doesn’t have enough friends her age.
Moving on we’ve got Caldo Rao, a young historian from the Nation of Evidence. A calm and cool person in general, he takes it upon himself to record history for posterity’s sake – only faltering when it comes to talking to girls. A certain incident has given him a bit of gynophobia, and as such he tends to avoid them as much as possible.
Lastly, we’ve got Escha and Logy – with the former being an 11 year old alchemist girl who’s friends with Mea, and the latter being a 27 year old blacksmith that creates weapons for Firis. Escha’s a bit different from her past appearances, bit Logy seems to be the same (at least in 2D).
These six characters will appear in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey, though in what respect we’re not quite sure. We’d of course hope that they’re playable, but the fact that they’re there at all (especially Escha and Logy) is likely a delight for some.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey is due out in Japan on September 29th, with no news yet on a Western localization.
