If you need help jumping into the Atelier Dusk DX games, look no further.
Recommended Order To Start With
You can start in any order you prefer, but to best understand the story without any missing gaps, it’s recommended to start the games in the following order:
- Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk DX
- Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky DX
- Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea DX
Atelier Ayesha DX and Atelier Escha & Logy DX both have ‘timers’ where you must complete the main objectives before their deadlines, although the latter is more lenient. Atelier Escha & Logy DX and Atelier Shallie DX improve on combat, but deciding between which is better might be up to personal preference even though Atelier Shallie DX brings new mechanics to the area.
- Atelier Ayesha DX = 35+ hours
- Atelier Escha & Logy DX = 50+ hours (if completing all assignments)
- Atelier Shallie DX = 30+ hours
Of course, playtime may vary depending on the player.
Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack vs Individual Purchases
The ‘Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack’ costs $90 US on the Nintendo Switch. Purchasing all three games individually will skyrocket the price straight up to $120 US because each game is priced at $40 US ($39.99 to be exact). Depending on where you live, you may need an additional amount for tax.
