We recently learned about the “Multi-Link Turn Battle” system in Atelier Sophie 2, and it didn’t take long for Koei Tecmo to share videos for it in addition to the Photo Mode feature.
Atelier Sophie 2 will keep a lot of the vibes and features from the first game, but it’ll also introduce new things, with the Multi-Link Turn Battle system and Photo Mode being two big parts. Check out the introduction videos from Koei Tecmo and Gust below:

As previously detailed, the combat of Atelier Sophie 2 revolves around the Multi-Link Turn Battle system. The battles take place seamlessly when players run into enemies on the field. Your party consists of six characters, with three frontline and three backline characters. The frontline and backline characters fight cooperatively and use actions such as “Twin Action” and “Support Guard” to accumulate TP. You can also fill up a Dual Gauge to activate special attacks between two characters.

The above is a look at the new and improved Photo Mode. In addition to party members, you’ll get to place NPCs and monsters in the photos. You’ll also get to set poses and expressions for the characters in the photo ops.
Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream will be available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on February 25, 2022.
