New Atelier Rorona Screens AddedGuess who else is playable in the Vita/PS3 remake?!10.03.13 - 1:11 PM
GUST and Tecmo Koei are remaking Atelier Rorona: Alchemist of Arland
for PlayStation 3 and Vita. Unlike the Plus versions of Atelier Totori
, this one is receiving much more of an overhaul. The battle system, for starters, will be more like Atelier Meruru
's (Cost Turn system), and you can use MP instead of Cost to use your skills, and the graphics get an improvement too.
You will also be able to synthesize higher-quality items, but at a greater cost, and you can decorate Rorona's studio. More (interesting) costumes will be available... and so will more party members. Esty Dee, the adventurer's guild receptionist, and Astrid, Rorona's teacher, will both be playable. Both are 26 years old in the game, but Astrid's powers are a bit of a mystery at the moment.
New Atelier Rorona is due for a November 21st release in Japan. Be sure to check out all the new - and related - screens and artwork in our gallery below!
