The latest Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream trailer is here, and it introduces us to Plachta, who takes on a little different form in the sequel.
You might’ve looked at the featured image and asked yourself if there were some kind of mistake, but the girl in the image is Plachta’s appearance in a dream world. In the first Atelier Sophie, she appeared as a scantily dressed older girl. More specifically, she first appeared as an old book and took on a more human form after Sophie writes a recipe in the book.
The story of Atelier Sophie 2 takes place after Sophie leaves her hometown Kirchen Bell. Sophie and Plachta get separated in the dream world of Erde Eige early on, and that’s where the story becomes about finding Plactha. However, Sophie meets a young alchemist with a completely different appearance but shares the same name as Plachta, who apparently arrived in Erde Wiege earlier.
Unlike the regular Plachta, the dream world Plachta is an immature and incomplete philosopher who spends her days researching in her own atelier. She has a vast array of emotions and cries whenever she loses a match. While she does share the same name as our Plachta from the first game, it appears that she has no clue who Sophie is.
