Atelier Meruru: New Videos And New Characters Watch the prologue and some gameplay footage! 05.02.11 - 8:17 PM
As you might have noticed, Totori and a young Rorona both play a role in Gust's upcoming Atelier Meruru. Totori's friend Mimi also re-appears in the game as a 20-year old. You'll come across her while hunting for materials, and she's playable - she uses a spear to fight.
Sixteen-year-old Raias is Rufus' younger brother. He is also playable (he uses a gun in battle), and is recruited by Rufus to escort Meruru. He seems a bit envious, though, about his older brother's preoccupation with Meruru and agrees to help him, hoping to win some of his admiration.
Gust also shared a couple more videos today. Atelier Meruru's prologue is over 4 minutes long, and tells a little bit of the background story.
Here's some gameplay footage, mostly of Meruru running around. That girl's got legs.
Atelier Meruru will be released in Japan on June 23rd.
