Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk (PS3)

The official name for Gust's Project A14 has been revealed in Dengeki PlayStation this week to be Ayesha no Atelier, or Atelier Ayesha.

The magazine reveals two characters: Ayesha Artool (voiced by Marina Inoue) and Nio Artool (voiced by Mariya Ise). At the game's unveiling last week, Gust announced the voice actresses, but did not share the character names or the new character designer. Dengeki reveals the designer to be Hidari (known for the Fractal anime).

Nio is Ayesha's little sister. Nio has gone missing, leaving Ayesha lonely. Just as she has come to grips with her sadness, Ayesha discovers some traces of her sister and comes to believe that she is alive somewhere. Asha heads out her journey.

Dengeki mentions one new gameplay system, the "Connecting Memories" system. As Ayesha progresses on her search for her sister, all the various happenings will be recorded in a journal. As she reviews these journal entries, she will grow.

The game will have a command battle system with a newly added "cost" element. Enemy position is a central element to strategy, as it seems that attacking more distant enemies will require additional cost.

Atelier Ayesha will be released on June 28.

I was surprised to see that nobody had made a thread for this rather delicious looking game. I'm sure NISA will probably localize it next year, but I'm still very tempted to import the game.
