Tecmo Koei Europe has announced the European release date for Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk through a post on their Facebook page earlier today: March 8, 2013. NIS America also revealed the game will be released three days earlier on March 5 in North American.
The publisher tweeted that the game would come with both Japanese and English audio options. However, Siliconera has received note from Tecmo Koei Europe that the release will NOT have the dual-audio tracks.
NIS America previously announced they were bringing Atelier Ayesha to North America last July. It turns out that NIS America is handling only work on the English localization while Tecmo Koei will be publishing both in Europe and North America. This news isn't surprising as the studio behind the Atelier series, Gust, was acquired by Tecmo Koei back in December of 2011.
For screenshots of the game, some featuring various menus in English for the first time, head on over to this gallery on the Atelier series Facebook page.
