Siliconera.Introducing Atelier Ayesha’s Other (Older) Alchemist
Before we meet Keithgrif take a look at Atelier Ayesha’s alchemy system. Like other Atelier titles, players will gather materials and bring them to Ayesha’s cauldron. Gust created formulas for players to follow, but you can alter recipes by throwing in other ingredients which can affect the quality of the item.

More details about Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk are coming out and the game won’t have a time limit like other Atelier titles. The goal of this game is to reunite Ayesha Altuge with her younger sister Nio who went missing while gathering herbs. Atelier Ayesha takes place in a new world separate from the Arland saga where the art of alchemy is out of style. Most people forgot about it and Ayesha lives in an ever changing world.
Speaking of changes, Gust revised the cost turn battle system for Atelier Ayesha. In Atelier Meruru, players can shift the turn order by using different attacks. Atelier Ayesha still incorporates this mechanic and adds enemy range to the mix. You can move Ayesha and other party members closer (or further away) from enemies, but moving alters the turn order too
