Gust Corporated – the developers of the Atelier Series – have announced that their upcoming Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists title will be getting a Season Pass. Not only that they have also announced that first print runs of the game will have the Season Pass included for free. Keep in mind that this is currently only confirmed for the Japanese release.
But what does the Season Pass offer you might ask? A fair amount of content to make the ride just that much more enjoyable. You can see the full list below:
Pack #1: Gust 25th Anniversary Background Music Pack 1 (120 songs) – Planned to release 31st Jan in Japan.
-A background music pack that lets you change the in-game background music. It includes 120 songs from Ciel nosurge: Ushinawareta Hoshi he Sasagu Uta and Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star.
Pack #2: Gust 25th Anniversary Background Music Pack 2 (110 songs) – Planned to release 7th Feb in Japan.
-A background music pack that lets you change the in-game background music. It includes 110 songs from Nights of Azure, Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, and Blue Reflection.
Pack #3: Gust-chan (Town resident) – Planned to release 14th Feb in Japan.
-Gust-chan becomes a resident of your town and will lend a hand in town-building. Gust-chan will also have her own dedicated events.
Pack #4: Atelier 20th Anniversary Celebration House (Special Building) – Planned to release 21st Feb in Japan.
-A familiar barrel-shaped house featuring Punipuni and the 20th anniversary logo.
Pack #5: Statue of the Alchemist of the Mysterious Book (Town Statue) – Planned to release 28th Feb in Japan.
-Sophie, who won the “Thank You for 20 Years of Atelier Character Poll,” in statue form.
The season pass and packs will also be release separately at a later date. We can only hope that a similar system will be launched alongside the western release of the game – as it seems Gust is really going out to celebrate the Atelier lineage with this.
Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists launches on 26th March (US) and 29th March (EU) for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
