You saw our new gallery for Gust's Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk yesterday, right? Okay, good. Today we have a teaser movie and a few details. It really is a teaser.

As you might recall from the game's official reveal, protagonist Ayesha Atugle in in search of her sister Nio who went missing while gathering herbs. Ayesha, who has been filled with sadness ever since, starts her search after seeing hints she may still be alive. One big difference between this and previous Atelier titles is that, unlike those past titles, there won't be a time limit in Atelier Ayesha.

Gust will be attempting to use full 3D models even for event scenes. The 'connect the memories' system is a take on the development system used in Atelier Meruru will also be in place in Atelier Ayesha, with the intent of tying it in more with the main story this time. The 'cost' element in the battle system (in which the turn order changes depending on what attacks you use) is being tweaked so that the enemy's range and moving your characters about the field come into play as well.

If you haven't yet seen the first screens and art, you'll find them below. Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk for PS3 is out in Japan on June 28th.
