It seems there has been a string of new Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk screens and video recently. If you, like me, are looking forward to the game then we have some interesting new news today. Three new characters have been officially announced along with a plethora of new screens and news on Japanese pre-order bonuses. So, let's get started!

First up is warrior and Ayesha-bodyguard, Linca. She takes on security work from Marion and spends most of her time protecting the game's alchemist hero. She's been trained in battle since she was little and is now 20 years old.

The next character is Merietta Muir. Merietta operates a shop under business owner Harry, who she is not overly fond of due to his obsessive collecting. She's 19 years old.

Last is the character with the coolest name: Fred Rodfork. Only the Japanese could come up with that. Fred is a 30 year old baker who loves to make cute pastries and donate spare bread to the needy. What a nice guy.

If you pre-order the game in selected retailers in Japan, you'll get one of these lovely 'World Guide' CDs (the label is selected at random).


The disc contains information on the world and characters, narrated by the voice actresses of Ayesha and Nio.

Last for today, Gust gave revealed players will be able to make their own notes in Ayesha's in-game diary. This will help to keep track of tasks and will even be rewarded with new alchemy recipes.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk will be out in Japan on June 28th. No word yet on a release elsewhere. Don't forget to check out our gallery link below. It has a massive amount of new screens for your viewing pleasure!
