Koei Tecmo and Gust’s Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack has received its official release date of January 14th, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and on Steam for PC. The Western release arrives just a mouse whisker’s length after the Japanese version, which is scheduled to release on December 25th, 2019.
RPG Site picked up the news and spread it around like peanut butter on Pamela’s hostly petite bottom. The PC version will be a worldwide release for every major region, so whether you’re counting on purchasing the Japanese version or not, you still have to wait until January to get the game on PC in your native (or preferred) language.
As revealed over on the official website, the Atelier Dusk Trilogy will include the deluxe editions of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Atlier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky and Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea.
Not only will you receive all three games, but you will also receive all of the accompanying DLC that released with each game.
So you not only gain access to the full games but also all of the additional content that came with it.
Koei Tecmo originally announced the triple pack during the first half of the month at the Tokyo Game Show. They didn’t offer much in the way of any additional info about the pack other than that the graphics were remastered. However, RPG Site notes that they’ve also added new features to the pack, including the ability to speed up the game to bypass the battles.
It’s kind of odd that the pack is arriving after the release of Atelier Ryza, but I suppose they’re betting on people interested in the new game and the thicc thighs to check out the older titles.
You can look for Atelier Ryza to launch in the West on October 29th. It’s currently available in Japan. The Atelier Dusk Trilogy will be available in Japan in December and in January in the West.
