God, god, i feel like a teen girl after getting her first bf, god dammit, i feel like if my dad told me he brought me a car and i cant still have it (maybe i will never hear that..), omg im just spamming everyone in msn telling them all this and i think they are starting to block me, AND I DONT CARE HEHE ILL BOTHER THEM IN COLLEGE.

I think NISA will do a good work this time (its not like last work was thaaat bad, i know it had it bads stuff, but voice acting was good, and it was a lot of scrip in AT2... anyway i know they wont screw it, i feel it in my blood!), and they are all excited with aterier rorona and now they will be more with this one!

Just out of curiosity, are there any scans of that article that don't suck.

Also is that one character in the upper right corner who looks like that one character from the previous game able to strip down her outfit?

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Try these 2 http://www.imagebam.com/image/42108052171401 and  http://www.imagebam.com/image/508e6652171400, i havent seen any other scans, these ones at least can be zoomed, as for the girl lol, i dont know but i though she looked like the girl in ar tonelico 2 as well, but i hope she isnt, because that would mean she just like forgot and stepped on Croix lol (if u got her ending that is) and i dont know wth is that strip system haha, on the rpgfan main page the writer referred about it as "liberation" system, dont know wth is it about O_o i cant wait to see some gameplay x_x

IMO

AT1 - great main character design, girls were kinda iffy (they were interesting, and different....till AT2 was revealed)
AT2- weak main character design (didn't care for that haircut), girls look amazing
AT3... I actually like this artist, and got the AT2 artbook... but this is pretty weak.  One looks like an anthropic soap bar, and the other looks like an asian anthropic watergun

I liked the game mainly for aesthetics.  The game had a wonderful sense of style and class (when you overlooked the stupid made-for-anime plot devices and sexual innuendos) the made its own language, brilliant music, and unique character designs.  The battles weren't everyones cup of tea.  I can see the hate for this game...I played for different reasons.

But fuck... this game suffered too much (pointless) dialogue.

I enjoyed the first two games (despite everything), and plan on picking this one up as well.

The girl is who you would think it is and if you can't see why she would be in this game, you weren't paying attention at the AT 2 ending.  Croix was a lame protagonist anyway.  Although I am saddened by the fact it looks like we'll be having yet another similar hero the third time...

Well ive seen a lot of people saying that the main character just ended being supporting character and it was lame, and maybe the changed that on the 3rd game!, we still cant be sure, yeah i think cocona will be in this game.. but i hope is not that pony tail girl because it would be weird (because of AT2 ending) and besides that pony girl looks weird D: its like she is missing some hair somewhere!

Seeing how this kind of games becomes ridiculous hard to find later on, I guess I will buy it for keepsake.

This game along with Atelier Rorona and Agarest Senki will probably force me to buy a PS3.  I guess hoping for niche games like this to be ported to the 360 for international release was wishful thinking...

The PS3 is picking up, and going by quite a few of the posters here many who are in inclined to get these games also own a PS3, or will own one. It probably isn't quite as critical to port anymore, and given how much data RPGs can eat up it may end up being for the best.

Yeah i think its been hard to leave the ps2 for EVERYONE, the ps3 is doing its best to take the ps2's place but we have to admit, its not easy job for any console.. but well, everything changes trough time and i can already feel the ps2 becoming part of the past, the only important release i would be waiting for ps2 is sakura wars that its in like january or march i dont know..

Loads of new stuff:

Ar tonelico 3 + Trailer

Box art

Preorder Bonus ~ 44 Page Artbook

Screenshots:

ttp://i230.photobucket.com/albums/ee266/rykomatsu/at3_event_01.jpg

Brief Overview (might be spoilers, from Neogaf):
Code:
The Ar Tonelico series takes place on the planet of Ar Ciel. Due to a prior catastrophy, humanity is forced to take refuge on one of 3 towers, called Ar Tonelico, located around the planet.

Ar Tonelico I takes place on Sol Ciel
Ar Tonelico II takes place on Meta Falas
Ar Tonelico III takes place on Sol Clusta

Sol Clusta is dominated by Reyvateils which are the ruling class. The ideal world to them consists only of Reyvateils and purified humans (ie. slaves)

Characters
Saki - Heroine (CV: Gotou Mai)
Reyvateil who was created in a laboratory for a plan that would have far reaching effects on the world (unclear if it's limited to Sol Clusta or the planet of Ar Ciel). She manages to escape shortly before the plan was to be set into motion and runs into the protagonist after being on the run for a number of years. When under sever duress, she exhibits a power called "miracle" on occasion.

Finnelle - Heroine (CV: Kitamura Eri)
βtype reyvateil (no human bloodline) born in the kingdom of Clustania. Ditzy girl who works in a restaurant on Tocociez Highway (i think?). Her existance appears to have a connection with the Clustania conspiracy but...

Aoto - Protagonist (CV: Sugiyama Noriaki)
Is an apprentice of a master who specializes in construction at high elevations. Doesn't think about consequences when he acts, but has a strong sense of obligation to complete what he's started. Has always had a slight dislike of Clustania, but after meeting Saki, he starts viewing Clustania as an enemy.

Hikarigojyou (Hikari Gojyou?) - Seen in screenshot
Tatsumi - Seen in screenshot

RAH System (Hymnos Synthesis) See link for some minor stuff
This title's Hymnos isn't limited to heroines just "singing" them. If you "combine" hymnos parts that are bourne from the heroine's psyche, the player himself/herself can create hymnos. Merging this RAH system and player's actions, the real-time BGM changes, which the Active Music Generation System accomplishes, brings a presence never experienced before (I'm assuming in regards to game BGM). Creating a good hymn and having the heroines sing it will bring effects such as increasing the vanguard's attack power.

Misc
Some other things I can't make out too clearly or don't deserve their own section.

-Deeper bonds with reyvateils allow them to "unleash" their attire which is probably what is being shown with the twin tailed girl (Finnelle)
-As before, the deeper you dive into the heroine's psyche, the more song magic you can unlock
-Multiple personalities (not sure if singular or plural) exist within each reyvateil. Different personalities prefer different song magics, which will have an effect on the RAH system.
-Aoto's town is at the border of the tower's climate control system, thus it's not completely protected from the elements, resulting in violent winds. The town has wind mills to make use of the winds, however.
-Clustania has the highest level of ameneties in the tower of Sol Clusta and is the central location for Reyvateils. Humans are brought into Clustania to help further develop Reyvateil's skills. Also, anti-Clustania individuals are brought in for cleansing.
-Jumping (i think?) returns to AT3

I'm kinda shocked Namco Bandai is publishing this and not NIS.
