Atelier Meruru's Finishing Moves + A New PV
All ten playable characters get one! ...A finishing move, that is.
05.30.11 - 3:45 PM

Some early magazine leaks indicate upcoming PS3 title Atelier Meruru will have ten playable characters. This includes Mimi and Gino from Atelier Totori who will be returning and playable! Each of these characters will also have their own unique finishing move in battle. Once the move is activated the character's theme music will play and a special animation will play on screen. There are few details on the specifics of these attacks as of yet, but it's suspected them one of them might involve a heart.

The official YouTube channel was updated today with this PV. This trailer re-introduces all the characters and their Japanese voice actors. There's a little bit of gameplay, too.

Gust have also promised that there will be full voice acting for event scenes, along with decreased load times. Great news for everyone!

Atelier Meruru is currently scheduled for a June 23rd release in Japan. Keep checking back for any news about a western release - but we imagine it'll be some time after Atelier Totori's fall 2011 release.
