Character selection Edit
After a prologue where the protagonists and some gameplay elements are presented, the player has to select who will be their main character: Shallistera or Shallotte. This decision will alter the point of view of the game, but the development and the main objectives will be the same regardless of the player's choosing.
Battle system Edit
Time limit Edit
Atelier Shallie doesn't have a time limit. The story progresses with the tasks system. After completing the main tasks for each chapter, the player will enter a "free time" phase, which only ends when a certain amount of points are obtained (by completing optional tasks). After finishing the "free time" phase, the game will pass to the next chapter. In any of the phases, the player can advance at their own pace.
There also exists a "motivation" bar which goes from "bad" to "good" that fills when tasks are completed and that empties when exploring, synthesizing, gathering or fighting. A greater motivation increases the movement speed and the amount of items that can be gathered.
Friendship system Edit
It works like the other games in the series.
