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.
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.
