    Where the Arland series introduced me to Atelier, it was the Dusk series that really solidified in my mind that it really had become my favourite JRPG property. By the end of Shallie I was six titles in and knew I would play anything else that came out of Gust the second it landed. If you're one of those that is new to Atelier (and thanks to Ryza I know that there are a lot of you out there), then here's your chance to catch up on three of the most distinctive and interesting JRPGs of the PlayStation 3 era.

    An attractive trio of JRPG titles given a new lease of life with polished audiovisual presentation and a range of quality of life fixes, there's no better entry point to the Ateiler franchise than this highly enjoyable trilogy for newcomers. However, previous players of these games will find little to return to them as the range of improvements are ultimately meagre.

    Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack offers three well aged and better rejuvenated titles. The additional features of the new edition, however, do not change the fact that these are games loved by a fairly small audience, capable of carving out time, patience and attention for much quieter games than a Square Enix Final Fantasy or even a Senran Kagura by Tarsoft, but still able to give at their own pace the same emotions, if not more.

    The Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack brings three excellent Atelier games to modern systems with most of the previous DLC and while these are great entry points to the series, the ports could have been better.

    Newer entries are probably better games, but these are solid JRPGs, and this is a great opportunity for newcomers to discover the franchise.

    The world setting of the Dusk Trilogy is one of the bleakest of all the Atelier games but that doesn’t mean that it’s a depressing story. The enthusiastic and endearing alchemists persevere through this dark world to create a warm uplifting tale that’s sure to put a smile on your face. All three games will see you exploring, crafting, and battling monsters but there are plenty of differences between each game that keep things really engaging and a real pleasure to play though.
