Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey official artwork screenshot

Besides being way too long for a simple title, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is a cheerful JRPG focused around exploration and alchemy that has just now arrived on Steam. Expect to spend a lot of time roaming the world looking for ingredients, messing around with the surprisingly complex alchemy system, and also beating the ever-living daylight out of any monsters and abominations that might stand in the way of scientific progress.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like, you can find the recently posted launch trailer down below. It doesn't feature any actual gameplay, but it should give you a good idea of what sort of JRPG you're getting into. Have a gander:

This is usually the time where I give you a brief overview of what the game actually plays like, but with Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey this is not the easiest of tasks given how much there is to cover. So if you're interested in learning more about the gameplay, as well as the characters and story, I would recommend you head over to the official website. While the screenshots themselves are in Japanese the descriptions are entirely in English, so prepare some coffee and be ready to spend well over 20 minutes poring over everything Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey has to offer.

And as a final note, here's a couple of images showcasing the characters, environments, and a little bit of combat as well:
