I'm honestly surprised about this.  This is one I didn't expect to see Stateside.

Not that I'm aware of.  At least - not yet.  I'd say there's probably a good chance of localization, given the popularity of the game.  Really, though, there's no need for it because there's so little text (a few names of weapons and armor here and there, NPC names).  All that really needs translating are the 4 pages of interview.

There's a lot less text than the average artbook.

A bit late, but the Dark Souls design works has been out for a few months now in Japan.

I received  my copy today - it's hardcover, 125 pages, with about 120 of them being art.  It's relatively inexpensive for an import (I was able to get it for $30 + $10 shipping), so if you enjoy the game, it's probably worth it. Much, much better than the crap artbook found with the (North American) LE.

You're right!

Mid-way through Year 2 now. The new mechanics and refinements from the previous two games are fantastic. Definitely the best gameplay-wise of the three.

Also, I am having an excitement overload right now (probably lame, I know) because I can have (minor character recruitment spoiler):

Sterk and Esty and Gino in my party. Now if only I could kick Meruru so I could have all three at once...

There's another Rorona character you can recruit that's NG+ only.

I'm not quite sure what to think.  Here's a link, by the way.

Hmm, my apologies. I've never had issues with Siliconera before.  Maybe one of their ads is bad?

Good news.


ADMIN EDIT: Old link replaced due to virus concerns.

I prefer Totori myself, because I dislike (the character) Rorona in Meruru.  They just butchered her.   But I can fully accept that Meruru (the game) is an improvement in many ways.

Other things I prefer from Totori: The music, the atmosphere, the story, and the lead female.
On the other hand, Meruru has the infinitely superior cast all around, with most of the best characters from both games making an appearance and having a part to play.  Save for Totori and Ceci, I found most of Totori's new cast to be rather dull; Meruru's new characters are almost universally better in that regard.
910  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: May 29, 2012, 05:49:38 PM
Meruru is very comparable to Totori.

And Totori was exceedingly lenient once you got past the first year or two.  As in, "finish everything possible in the game and still have a year left" lenient.  That's how it generally is with Atelier titles; usually the beginning is very frantic and you feel like you're stuck heavily under a time limit, doing everything you can, wasting as little time as possible. . .only to have the time limit ease up as you learn the game and progress further.

I actually think Sony might be the one keeping it online, by the wording in the press release. To lose such an important component of one of the PS3's highest rated exclusives would be a hit to the console.
912  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: May 25, 2012, 12:25:39 AM
I desperately miss the 1984 vibes from the first game.  I feel like XIII had an atmosphere, a tone in general. XIII-2 lacks that.

I, too, was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the monster developing. It went above and beyond my expectations. 
913  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: May 24, 2012, 08:44:46 PM
True enough, but a powerful opening can stick with you more thoroughly than the game itself.  Chrono Cross comes to mind.
914  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: May 24, 2012, 08:20:43 PM
I like the new opening theme better, but the entire first half with the dancing just turns me away.
915  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: May 24, 2012, 06:06:38 PM
Judging by how much money they put into it and we've barely heard anything at all, it seems like a case of bad management and foolish allocation of resources.
