The latest PS3 instalment in the moe mix-’em-up Atelier series has just been announced as Atelier Escha & Logy, featuring two new protagonists and the same popular character designs as Ayesha.

The main change appears to be two protagonists in the form of Escha and Logy, with characters from Ayesha also making appearances.

Better motion capture and full lip-sync are also promised, for what seems likely to be the last and most graphically accomplished Atelier title on the PS3.

The game’s Japanese release will be on June 27th.

    What's the point of posting this Atelier news here if there is a lame, generic male MC? Huh, Sankaku Complex?

    I want a male MC for once. The others were great, the series was fun, but it became a little imbalanced with the male characters just becoming pointlessly present. Sterk was the best one, but he managed to be a simultaneous badass in his armor while being completely pansy in everything else. Even his love of pidgeons was more masculine and developmental to his character than much of his dialogue. I guess people would actually get pissed if any female character ever fell for one of the male characters.

    Atelier series became a ridiculous cluster of 40-year-old virgins. By the end of Totori that was fine, but by the end of the series? Come on, Gust, SOME kind of relationship would have made sense. Mimi and Totori don't count. Esty was hot as shit, even if her full name is like kryptonite to our balls.

    This Atelier could've been the best game in the series if only Gust didn't have to include that bland and boring guy.

    Can't they make the male MC interesting at least?

    Past Atelier games had male MC's too. In fact Atelier Iris (the first one)'s MC is male.
    Atelier Iris 2 had both male and female.
    Atelier Iris 3 is mainly running about a male MC as well.

    Then there's that female-oriented title where it pretty much looks like an otome-game. Let's not go into that realm.

    was thinking the same thing!
    but hey, the female sub characters for male MC is fine too

    Comment by Anonymous

    maybe its because of this.... "cross over appeal".
    guessing that piece of shit male MC is actually for the "female audience".

    Comment by Anonymous

    nice intent. but my last chance on any kind of female is from a long time ago....

    just sayin.... your advice is "obsolete".

    This better have massive amounts of yuri to make up for the male sidekick.

    I'm very pessimistic of that, sadly. This Atelier is already ruined by that useless dude. I wonder what was Gust thinking.

    Jesus. Already?

    I cancelled my preorder of Ayesha because I just couldn't pay full price for half a localization. I even feel guilty about it because I'm afraid they'll make it an excuse not to fully localize this one as well.

    I'll get it when it drops a few bucks, since there was no benefit for getting it immediately anyway without preorder bonuses. I've only just reached Fallout New Vegas, so I'm too far behind to care about normal game releases now unless they come with pointlessly useless trinkets that make no sense why I want them.

    Same opinion here.
    An Atelier Game with no japanese audio, seems ... off.
    I'll buy it either when a free japanese audio DLC is out there or being at a much lower price.

    Me and my wife, as owners of the so far complete series are angry with that half-development lazzyness

    Dafuq? If it was 'half a localisation' you'd get either English text and Japanese voice or Jap text and Eng voice.

    Eng voice and text is full localisation.

    Instead we got half english voice with english text. I will not argue that it's merely me being particular, but there is no argument that it is going backward from previous releases in the series. In basic customer service terms, there's no really good reason for having gone backwards in inclusions.

    Its for crap like this I repaired my 60gig for cfw and undubs.

    NISA probably didn't anticipate TK dropping Japanese voices(and hence the intro with Jpn seiyuus).

    I did buy Totori Plus on PSN as it had Jpn audio. Maybe enough of us bought that game so that TK sees the light.

    English voice in Ayesha is half-assed partial dub.

    Quick cash tactics are being employed by every game company out there, if they want to lose fans, so be it, i still have a huge re-run on old rpgs.

    Just a feeling, but can it be that this site is full of retarded female sexists ? Seriously...
    Why the fuck make so many people here such a stupid fuss out of it, that the next game has an OPTIONAL male MC and rage over this fact, like being some little braindead kids, that didn't got, what they wanted as presents... grow up people!

    Its a game only and if you just don't like the character cast in it, then don't fucking buy the game. So simple.
    People already call the male character bland, lame, boring, whatever, but have absolutely NO clues about it, how that male character's personality will be later in the game.
    Pull the stupid prejudices out of your asses and don't judge over things, that you don't know!

    You people behave all here, as if you would never accept anything else, than a game full of female characters. A game like this gets BORING, if it plays basically from part to part always the same.
    Despite the fact, that the game series has begun with male MC's

    God, how I hate such retarded superficial people.
    Accept simple the game, as it will be, or let it.
    But stop badmouthing the game, only because of some sexistic things in it aren't fulfilled as like such silly stuff, like the game has to have only female MC's.

    Do you live all behind the moon, or what???

    It did not begin with a male MC.
    Btw, Marie, the first protagonist is one of the cutest Atelier girls until today, IMHO. Losing just to Rorona pre-mindbreak.

    Relax, it seems you choose which one you are going to play as either male or female.

    "We recently reported that you’ll have a choice of picking between Escha and Logix as two protagonists. The main story will be the same, regardless of which character you choose, but there will be different events and multiple endings, including some that can only be seen depending on the protagonist
