Maybe the Atelier series isn't the most popular. Or the most innovative. Maybe it isn't the most heavily-marketed or the most localized series. Whatever, it doesn't have anything to prove to you. What it does have, however, is a die-hard fan base and, as of right now, a boat load of screen shots for the upcoming Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky.
The upcoming installment into the series features a Star Ocean 2-esque option of choosing one of two characters: Escha Malier, a 15 year-old girl who is studying alchemy, or Logix Fiscario, an 18 year-old swordsman who is an alchemy school dropout who wields his not-as-good alchemy skills in tandem with his sword. The story is essentially the same regardless of character, but there are supposedly multiple endings, some of which are contingent on chosen protagonist.
Below, we have a gallery, for your perusal, of many screen shots released by Gust, courtesy of Dengeki Playstation. Feel free to look around them. There are no hidden pictures of Ben Savage for April Fool's Day or anything.
Atelier Escha & Logy is aiming for a June 27th release on the PlayStation 3 in Japan, so keep your eyes open here and we'll let you know when you can pick it up here in the US of A and maybe, just maybe Europe.
