Atelier Ayesha Plus Arrives on PS Vita Today

Hello PS Vita players! We’re happy to announce that today we are launching Atelier Ayesha Plus ~The Alchemist of Dusk~ on PS Vita via PlayStation Store.

If you’re not familiar with the Atelier game series, it’s a RPG developed by one of our development teams, GUST, in Japan. Unlike the previous titles in the Atelier series, the setting for Atelier Ayesha Plus — the Dusk World — is on the verge of ruin, the glory of their civilization based on alchemy all but lost. Additionally, Hidari’s role as illustrator serves to further deepen the presentation of the Dusk World.

Atelier Ayesha Plus tells the tale of a girl, Ayesha Altugle, who after the death of her grandfather and the disappearance of her younger sister Nio, now lives alone blending healing cures to sell in her workshop. Upon a vision of Nio appearing near her empty grave, Ayesha is convinced Nio is still alive and begins her search to save her sister.

  • Sigh. That should have been “Maker” instead of “Masker”…

  • @50 I have not seen any sale for them. And even if they did have a sale, they should have an official price change for them. As there isn’t only sequels at equal value, but also the fact a couple of them are over a year old.

    Ok, I do agree that permanent price drops on some older Vita games are needed..

    But they most definitely did have sales, I bought 2/3 of the games that way.

    The first (vita) game (Totori) I bought full price only to see it on sale for around 15$ before I’d even gotten around to playing it (which is why I waited for the sales on the others).

    I have the 3 prior Atelier Vita games. I am appreciative that Tecmo supports the Vita in the US so I buy just about all of them to show my appreciation.

    Which reminds me, what order should I play the Arland games in? I want chrono order, so I’ll get the full storyline, not when released. I know that later games have better mechanics but the story is more important to me.

    I’m going on a trip and will finally be able to give quality time to my Vita next month.

    @boomstickbhg Rorona Plus was released about half a year ago. It has had a sale in the UK but I don’t think it’s had one in NA.

    A year isn’t really that long all things considered. Some games, like most Nintendo ones, never lower in price.

  • So is there any chance of a physical release? I prefer to have physical games whenever possible, especially with the price of Vita memory cards.

  • HeadAcheJoe

    Not necessarily interested in this game, but can you all start adding info whether these Vita game releases are compatible with PlayStation TV?

  • KidGreengene

    Not one for jRPG’s (nothing against them, just have yet to play a single one that holds my interest very long) but this looks good. Is it turn based or no? I think that is what knocks me out of most jRPG’s is the ones I try all happen to be turn based.

  • So, I’ve downloaded the game and I’m playing it now…. did you guys over at KT cut lines out of the english voice tracks? Fully voiced scenes in the PS3 version have randomly cut voiced lines in the PSV version? Or is this a bug?

    The Japanese voice track works fine, its just odd to hear random lines cut during a cut scene is all.

      I have received the confirmation from the dev team. The English voice is the same as PS3 version.

      However, some events don’t have voice, we will investigate this matter anyways.

  • Its quite unfortunate, but quite a bit of the english voiced lines seem to be cut or bugged out. Its a shame since I really liked the Dub for the game.

  • @26
    No, but if you’re looking JRPG’s,
    Spring NIS America will release Omega Quintet
    Persona5 this year
    Final Fantasy X|X2 Spring
    FFType 0 March
    Disgaea is Tactics style but I guess it counts
    Hyperdimension V2 will maybe come this year if not early next year. They’re coming, Just they gotta be out in Japan to be localized for most Japanese games lol

    1. Rorona (assuming you have the plus version wait until doing the post game chapter until after 2-3)
    2. Totori
    3. Meruru

  • Is this NA/Europe exclusive? Too bad we from other region (Asia) cant play this since its digital only.

  • I don’t buy download only games, No support for digital only games.

  • I loved Atelier Rorona Plus when I got it for the PS3. I wanted to get all the other Atelier Plus games so I went and bought myself a Vita, but then I found out there were no retail copies… so I guess Rorona+ will be the only Atelier game I’ll ever play in my life. I am never buying a digital-only game no matter how much I want to play it. No support for that sht.

  • I’ve always wanted to try an Atelier game but I never have. Now that I have a PS Vita and a very long commute every day I think I may have to take the time to pick this title up and give it a shot!
