'Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky', a PlayStation 3 video game from publisher Tecmo KOEI.
Tecmo Koei America reveals three combined titles for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita for release in the first months of 2014.
Following what the company calls a "ground breaking success in Japan", Temco KOEI is localizing the game Toukiden: The Age of Demons in North America for the PlayStation Vita handheld system.
The game has players can customizing characters, weapons, and armor, then forming a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni - demons of varying strength and size who have invaded the world through cracks in space and time. Boasting an extensive character creation mode, Toukiden: The Age of Demons features six non-player characters designed by Atelier Ayesha artist Hidari and six different weapon types. The game is set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan. It also features 200 characters based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whose souls help players strengthen their team and defeat their enemies.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, the latest installment in the Atelier series, will be released in North America in early 2014 for the PlayStation 3 .
For the first time on the console, Atelier series players can choose if they will follow the story of Escha or Logy, a novelty that offers a unique story perspective and gameplay experience. Escha's story is a delightful tale of the everyday adventures of an alchemist that Atelier series' fans love, whereas Logy's story follows a darker approach filled with traditional RPG elements and focused on world exploration.
The final of the three new titles, Deception IV: Blood Ties, is from the producer of Fatal Frame. The Deception series uniquely focuses in giving players a taste of what it's like to play on the side of evil by using a wide variety of imaginative traps to exact revenge on their adversaries.
The Deception IV: Blood Ties is being developed for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita. Much like its predecessors, it is a strategy focused action series where players control a main character that defeats enemies by luring them into imaginative traps.
Tecmo KOEI has all three titles currently slated for an early 2014 release.
