Shortly before the release of the updated “Mysterious DX” trilogy on April 22nd, 2021, Koei Tecmo announced that the original versions of the three Atelier titles would be delisted by that same date. Atelier Sophie, and Atelier Firis were delisted on Steam and PlayStation 4 while Lydie & Suelle was delisted on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. It was uncertain at the time but the PlayStation Vita versions of all three titles remain available, presumably because the “DX” versions were not released for the Vita. Older and newer Atelier titles remain available confirming that the delistings of the “Mysterious” trilogy were not related to licensed music or content.

About the Game

The DX versions of each title are available individually and as a bundle. They each include “lots of previously released DLC” though Koei Tecmo has not confirmed if all of the previous DLC would be available for each game. Reader DehrySA also pointed out to us that only the original versions are cross-compatible between PlayStation 4 and Vita, and support older operating systems on Steam.

“The Atelier series’ latest standalone installment follows the adventures of young novice Alchemist Sophie Neuenmuller, who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic book imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold all the secrets to the art of Alchemy, even going on to become Sophie’s mentor. As Sophie experiments with Alchemy throughout the story she unravels the book’s forgotten memories, and eventually sets out to uncover the strange tale of its origin.

Experience a pleasant journey alongside Sophie, her friends, and a diverse cast of townspeople that help with their adventuring needs. Uncover the multitude of mysteries of Alchemy that have been hidden away and forgotten alongside Plachta, the Mysterious Book. Experiment with the brand new Synthesis system to uncover Platcha’s memories and learn new alchemy recipes at any pace!”
