Atelier Online mixes together chunks from other games in the series to create a free to play action adventure RPG. It’s been out in Japan for a while, but it’s set to launch worldwide at the start of next month.
The game features characters from other Atelier games, and sees you building a team of scrappers to explore a mysterious island. You can join up with three other friends to take on the island’s monsters in online co-op as well.
You’ll be mixing potions as well, blending together ingredients to create unguents that’ll help you out as you get deeper into the experience. Sounds gloopy. Here’s a trailer.
There’s some other interesting stuff too – a day / night and weather cycle means different monsters appear depending on the conditions, and there’s some character customization as well.
If any of that has tickled your ticklish bits, you can click here to pre-register for Atelier Online: Alchemist of Bressisle. If you do pre-register you’ll get some free in-game goodies when the game launches on July 8th.
