Koei Tecmo and Gust have revealed three new characters for Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream with a batch of trailers.
It’s worth noting that we only have the Japanese names so far, so we’ll likely get something different when the localized names come out. For now, here’s a look at the trailers and details for the three new characters introduced for Atelier Sophie 2 (via GamesTalk):
Pirika (Voiced by Yukimi Hayase | Design by NOCO)
A shopkeeper who runs her own store called Pirika’s Shrine. The bloodline of a certain family runs through her veins and gives her the ability to reproduce items. She’s an enthusiastic worker but loves taking naps, so you’ll often catch her snoozing on the job.
Katrina Balbastre (Voiced by Manami Numakura | Design by Yuugen)
Katrina runs a restaurant called The Brilliant Crystal Arbor. Her nickname is Katty. While she runs a restaurant, she’s a highly capable information broker who knows all kinds of info about Erde Wieg. She’s also a great cook but isn’t serious about customer service, despite being the owner of her own restaurant. You’ll often catch Katty slacking it every day at the restaurant.
Norm Dumortier (Voiced by Yuko Ono | Design by Yuugen)
A serious and hardworking young man who works at The Brilliant Crystal Arbor restaurant. He manages most of the work at the restaurant to make up for all of the slacking from Katty. He seems to have a debt of gratitude for Katty and feels the need to help her in any way possible.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream will be available for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on February 25, 2022, and now we know about three more new characters in its adventure. If you missed it, check out the introduction trailers for Plachta and Ramizel Erlenmeyer.
