Koei Tecmo America has announced that Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists ~Ateliers of the New World~, the latest entry in the long-running Atelier franchise, will be making its way to the West in early 2019.

Check out a synopsis and new trailer from Koei Tecmo below!

In Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World, players assume the role of Nelke von Lestamm, a young aristocrat who longs to become an alchemist, but sadly does not have the talents required. With a strong fascination with the ancient legend
of the Sage of Granzweit, she is excited to uncover new information which rumors that the sacred Granzweit Tree is within the lands her father governs.

Not only are the eccentric alchemists on hand to help with developing Westwald, but Nelke will rely on their help to unravel the mystery behind the Granzweit Tree. The main cast of the Dusk series; Ayesha Altugle, Escha Malier, Logix Ficsario, Shallistera Argo and Shallotte Elminus, are just a handful of the alchemist friends which she will have the pleasure to work alongside on her journey. More alchemists are yet to be revealed from across other Atelier titles like the Salburg, Mysterious and Arland trilogies.
