Today KOEI Tecmo has announced the bad news that Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists has slipped into Early 2019 from it’s original Q4 2018 release plan. This is a shame but hopefully this means that any localisation hiccups will be nipped in the bud and we won’t have a dodgy release (like with some other Gust games) with that long wait for a Patch to fix up.
For those of you unaware, Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists is a 20th Anniversary mash up game of all your favourite Atelier game characters built into a Synthesis focused JRPG along with new Town building management sections – making this the fist Atelier game in a while to reach out of it’s usual comfort zones. It is also the first part of a new spin-off series known as the “Legendary Alchemist” series, so expect to see more like this in the future.
Below you can find a new trailer released alongside this news, featuring the game in action! Check it out and enjoy!
Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists will be releasing Early 2019 on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
