Be still my beating heart. Everyone knows how much I love the Atelier series, so whenever a new one is announced I can’t help but get really really excited… and Gust and Koei Tecmo have just announced a new one.

Atelier Lidy & Soeur has, as the name suggests, two central protagonists, and they’re sisters. One is apparently the calm, quiet type, and the other one is a bundle of energy. The story itself features the two girls sharing an atelier in the capital city of the Adarett Kingdom. They discover a painting, and – surprise! – they can jump into those paintings and explore.

Okay that’s not the most unique concept out there, but there are a couple of things we can always rely on Gust to deliver with Atelier; super-sweet stories, beautiful ladies, and a wonderful cooking – sorry, alchemy – system. It’ll be charming, happy, fun, and wonderful.

This is the third game in the Mysterious series of Atelier titles, which started with Sophie and continued with Firis. Recent trends with Atelier would suggest that will be the last one. If nothing else, the ability to jump from one painting to the next should provide plenty of variety in world building and characters.

The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Vita, and Nintendo Switch.

I cannot wait. And that’s an understatement. I am so excited.
