Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg is re-imagined take on the classic RPG Adventure, and includes all-new graphics along with plenty of new elements to enhance the gaming experience.

In Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist Of Salburg, players are reintroduced to Marie, a struggling student at the Royal Academy of Magic whose teacher gifts her an alchemy atelier for her upcoming graduation exam. Marie’s ultimate goal is to create an item within five years that will satisfy her teacher, but to do this, she’ll need to improve her alchemy skills, gather materials, and earn money for reference books and tools, as well as hire adventurers. Where to start is up to the player, as they’ll be able to navigate the game at their own pace in this carefree adventure, with the ultimate goal to graduate from the academy.

All new graphics brighten the screen using modern techniques to bring Marie and her friends to life. Character and event stills are newly illustrated, with 2D animations of character stills being freshly implemented. 3D models of characters and stages are also being added, along with cute chibi-style characters ready to explore.

In addition, this Atelier series origin story not only maintains the simple and highly flexible playability of the original game, the tutorial and guidance of moving around town and collecting items has been expanded and modified to help the remake become even more comfortable and easier to play. This also includes improved mini-game controls and gameplay along with balance adjustments and enhanced comfort and presentation of both syntheses and battles.

Koei Tecmo America and developer GUST Studios revealed the first details about additional events, Photo Mode, and minigames included in Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg.
