PlayStation®3 [RPG]

Atelier returns with the third installment in the "Dusk" storyline! Set 6 years after the start of Dusk Sky you are once again given the choice of two different plot lines: that of Shallistera and Shallotte, two alchemists dealing with an extreme drought. 

Shallistera's story reveals many of the mysteries of the series, while Shallotte's story will reveal more about the daily life in the affected world. After meeting each other, Shallistera and Shallotte will grow by fulfilling goals through teamwork and their friendship is one of the elements that the story will focus on.

The concept and theme of choice continues with the brand new goal management system known as the "life task system" - essentially a personalized 'to do' list for the player.  The life task system will give you different tasks based on how you play and how far you've progressed. Spend all your time on the battlefield? Expect battle-related tasks.  The life tasks are a requirement, failure to accomplish tasks results in a penalty, and play a role in driving the games pacing but as they are truly personalized you should expect to be doing more of whatever it is you love about Atelier!
