When in battle, characters in Atelier Firis will have access to the standard basic attacks, special attacks, and items, but abilities can also be chained together. Doing so will increase the party's Linkage Meter, which, when full, will allow the party to activate Chain Burst attacks, which deal greater amounts of damage. Subweapons will also be available for the first time in the series. Each character will be able to equip up to two subweapons — in addition to a main weapon — that offer a greater variety of attacks and effects.
Atelier Firis is the latest release in the long-running series starring young alchemists, this time a direct follow up to Atelier Sophie. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam on March 7, 2017, in North America and on March 10, 2017, in Europe.
