Gust Files A Trademark For Atelier Meruru The company is synthesizing another title in their flagship alchemy series. 03.08.11 - 2:22 PM
The existence of a new Atelier game was teased at a recent Gust event, and it has been made official by a spread in Japan's Dengeki Magazine, who will continue to release new information about the game at regular intervals.
While the game's title has not been officially announced by Gust, the company recently filed a trademark for Atelier Meruru, and similar trademarks in the past have ended up as game titles. The titular heroine is a spunky-looking lass with long, curly blonde hair. Not to be outshined by another up-and-coming alchemist, Rorona will be making her third consecutive appearance in the Alchemist of Arland series. Scans show her portrayed as a young girl, but the accompanying text hints that Rorona will "grow up further" in this upcoming game.
Though we showed a few scans last time, here's a shaky-cam look at the game from the Dengeki event (the Atelier part starts about halfway through):
No Japanese release date has been scheduled as of this writing. What most likely will be Atelier Meruru, and its prequel, Atelier Totori, have not been announced for release in North America, either. Check back with us at RPGFan for the latest details as they become available.
