The Atelier series has been around for quite some time. The series, which often focuses on alchemy, has always been known for its light-hearted quirkiness, exploration-based gameplay and humor. The latest in the frachise, Atelier Shallie: Alchemist of the Dusk Sea, is nearing completion with a June 26, 2014 release in Japan. While a North American date isn't confirmed, or even guaranteed for that matter, importers should be pleased. The latest title features a nifty new goal management system, which distributes objectives based on the players previous choices, as well as larger areas to explore.
