May 2022 is the 25th anniversary of the Atelier series, and a big celebration is planned.

According to the 25th Anniversary website, “various Atelier-related projects” are planned.

One of these will be a new game, a 25th anniversary title to be announced on October 2 at TGS during Koei Tecmo’s live stream.

Meanwhile, the website has six spots listed for projects, with the first dated October 2 while the others all say “Coming Soon.” These projects should be revealed between now and the anniversary. They probably aren’t all games, of course, but maybe we’ll get more game announcements than just that one.

A rating recently surfaced for Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, so it’s highly likely that it is the October 2 announcement.

Not only are six anniversary projects planned, but there is also currently an Atelier sale going on across Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Nintendo eShop.

(Blue Reflection and Fairy Tail are also on sale where they’re available.)

Atelier sales are rare. The last time the Arland trilogy went on sale in the eShop was 2019. I know I won’t play these games too soon, but I’m tempted to buy them all now because it could believably be years before the next sale. Also Fairy Tail, because I was starting to think they forgot it existed.

Anyway, what do you think the Atelier anniversary announcements will be? Are you planning to pick up any of the games in the sale?
