With the 15th installment in the Atelier video game series “Atelier Escha & Logy” set to launch in Japan this Thursday, the developers GUST have been actively promoting the game through a series of trailers focusing on each of the games characters. The first two videos in the “Character Image Files” series we take a look at the games two Alchemist main characters Escha Malier and Logix Fiscario – both of them are selectable protagonists and have different alchemy styles.
Above is the video for the female protagonist Escha Malier, a young girl from the town of Kolseit who at the beginning of the game had just recently become a member of the development team alongside Logix Fiscario. While her skills as an alchemist are at a beginner level, she has been exposed to the trade for many years from her mother. Apparently her gameplay style is set to appeal to those who have been fans of the previous games. The video below is for the male protagonist Logix Fiscario, who unlike Escha is familiar with the newer style of Alchemy which allows him to work with and enhance weaponary. Choosing him as a main character is set to appeal to those who desire more RPG-oriented combat, hopefully along the lines of the Atelier Iris trilogy.
