Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX is a game that many people are excited about. As the DX implies this is a new version of an older game. A game that was originally released in 2015 and this version is kicking things up several notches. This is an interesting game to re-release. I say that because while this is the “first” in this series of Atelier games, it is the 17th overall.

A Few New Twists

The plot of the game largely is remaining the same. In case you have not played the original let me fill you in on the basics of what Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX is all about. There is a spunky young alchemist called Sophie who is so eager to learn the ways of magic and the like. She comes across a magic book called, Plachta and this book also happens to be sentient, but it is having trouble with its memories.

The story sees Sophie and Plachta head out on an adventure as they try to fill in the blanks of Plachta’s memory and also help Sophie learn new skills and abilities. It is great stuff and this new version of the game features new episodes that are going to help us know Sophie even more.

The Quality Of Life

I actually think that the original game was pretty damn good, but they have made a few changes to things with Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX that I think makes this overall a better game to play. This is a 3rd person RPG that has a heavy emphasis on action. You move around the map, talking to people, taking on quests, and so on. The stuff that you would expect to do in an RPG.

This game allows you to move around faster with a new sprint function. This may not sound like a great deal, but being able to move from point A to point B faster is better. Also, the game gives you extra cauldrons (used in battles) which makes things easier and I am sure people new to the game will like this. It also includes a new photo mode so you can admire the amazing graphics (especially the cute girls) the majority of the DLC is also included here too.

It Was Already HD, But This IS DX HD!

The original game was already fantastic-looking. It featured nice and bright colors and characters that were sexy, cute and they were just at the fine line of being overly sexualized. With the visuals already being so good, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX just looks that tiny bit sharper. The majority of the game looks the same in my opinion, but I am not entirely sure what they could have done to improve it, to be honest with you.

The game has a very whimsical “Japanese” kind of soundtrack that I really do like. It is very fitting with the story and this magical world that they have created. Even the voices in the game are great too.

I have to say that while I am happy that Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book DX is a thing. I think the whole DX thing in the title may throw people off as this is more of a “game of the year” type edition or an ultimate edition than a brand-new version of the game. Still, without a doubt, if you are interested in this game, this is the version you need to play.

Pros:

  • The game still looks fantastic
  • I am interested in the new story chapters for Sophie
  • The way the battles are faster and the other QOL improvements make things better
  • It has a ton of the original DLC

Cons:

  • It is not a huge step over the original
  • There are many different special, collectors, digital versions for this which is confusing
