Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland – More details, pictures, and video (Synthesis, more)

Today, Koei-Temco has shared some more details about Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland, complete with some new screenshots, and even a new video.

In the latest entry in the Atelier series, you get to play as Lulua Frixel, who sets out on a journey to uncover the mysteries of an ancient codex and of Arland itself. There’s various lands to discover: some from previous entries in the series (but affected by the tides of time), some new and unexplored.

Each land is home to a wide range of raw materials, that can be used in synthesis. Exploring them isn’t just a way to unlock new places, it also increases your chances of finding rare resources.

Here’s how synthesis work in the game:

These rare materials are used as part of the game’s Synthesis system, a fundamental part of the Atelier series which allows alchemists to create new items. In Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland players will decrypt the codex to unlock a variety of new and exciting recipes which will, in turn, help them throughout their adventure. The synthesis system in this latest entry combines the Arland trilogy’s quality and trait systems; allowing for items to take on entirely new characteristics, along with the Mysterious trilogy’s elements and boost items, giving items powerful abilities that would not be previously possible. These fresh-yet-familiar systems synthesize together with the new Awaken Effect mechanic to offer a bounty of possibilities to aspiring alchemists.

When at the cauldron, players can use a raw material with the Awakened Effect ability in the mix to give the resulting item a secondary element. Combine a Fire Damage Awakened Effect material with a Thunder Bomb and the resulting item will be a bomb which releases both thunder and fire for a devastating blow. As players learn all of the synthesis system’s intricacies, they will be able to create a variety of unique and useful items to use throughout the lands of Arland and in battle.

And here’s a video showcasing the synthesis system in Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland:

Finally, here’s some more pictures for the game (screenshots for synthesis, character art, and temp. boxart):
