New Atelier Rorona Coming to PS3 and PSV This November (in Japan)

Besides Senran Kagura Burst, another recently announced remake has also caught my attention and it’s a remake of a game I previously didn’t have interest in picking up.

New Atelier Rorona

Before: Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland

Now: New Atelier Rorona: Origin Story of the Alchemist of Arland.


To sum up the Siliconera report, here’s what fans of the Atelier series, especially the Arland trilogy, can expect from this revamp of the first game  in the Arland Trilogy.

-A graphical makeover courtesy of Tecmo Koei for both the world and the character models.

-A vegetable garden to cultivate veggies for various uses.

-Bonuses from using items as decorations

-A Time Capsule that will have interesting effects on previously added items once the capsule is dug up again.

-Special content for players who have either or both an Atelier Totori+ or/and Meruru+ save files. Meruru+ is coming to the PSV this Fall btw.

-Surprise characters later in the game’s story.

-The game will have Meruru’s combat system.

I’m glad this game is getting a PS3 release as I have no plans on picking up the first Rorona. I still want the first Meruru though.

Rorona BeachNew Atelier Rorona is stated for a Japanese release in November of this year. No word as to when the Western version will come out. Probably next year, after Atelier Escha and Logy.

    Funny thing is, I was able to get Rorona, and Meruru, but could never find Totori. Then Totori+ came to the vita. So now I have all the Ateliers available to PSN users.
