Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg is a remake of the first game in the long-running Atelier series of JRPGs, and it's coming to the West on PS5 and PS4 in Summer.
Originally released only in Japan on PS1 and Sega Saturn in 1997, Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg tells the story of the titular Marie. Marie is a struggling alchemy student who is thrown a lifeline when a teacher allows her the use of a workshop (atelier), provided she creates something extraordinary and is given a five-year deadline by which to do so.
The Atelier series is quite refreshing in that way, while there is combat, the stakes in each game are often quite low, and it's nice not to have to save the world every now and then. What do you think of Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg? Mix up a response in the comments section below.
Very interesting to finally play the origin of all atelier games. I kind of fell off after Meruru but it's been such a long time that I've played one that I might pick those one up if it's good.
If they are remaking this i hope they can do Atelier Iris And Mana Khemia as well.
Was this in the Japanese Nintendo direct, or was this a completely separate announcement?
I often find these days that the Nintendo events announce more game I'm interested in (that are multi system), than publisher or dedicated Sony events.
Very interesting, releasing to close to Ryza 3 though. Hoping it is not 60€...
Anyway I am very interested!
@GorosBat was in the Japanese Nintendo direct, although its strange they decided to leave it out of the English direct as they have announced its coming worldwide this summer.
This year is already packed with jrpgs, and they keep announcing games.
At this point I am happy I don't even have a Switch cause there are even more coming on that platform.
@UltimateOtaku91 Either way it’s pretty awesome that we are getting two Atelier games in one year, I think Gust finally realised what type of protagonist will sell the most. I beat the 1st Ryza game a couple weeks ago so am looking forward to finding out what the rest of the series is like.
@GorosBat I love the atelier series as well, played them all starting from the ps3 with Rorona, so I'm quite interested to play even older ones from the ps1 and ps2 era. Personally though going from Ryza to the older games will feel weird as older titles weren't as open and were more time based whereas as ryza is open world and has no time limits for story quests.
Ryza 3 is looking to be the best one yet with 4 massive open zones and a lot more exploration options than usual.
this also got a fan translation for the ps2.
@AndyKazama Yeah Wednesday's USA direct was hype, just a shame some games were exclusive to the Japanese direct.
