New Atelier Rorona TrailerAnd some belated screens of the PS3/Vita remake, too.11.15.13 - 6:56 PM
With New Atelier Rorona: Origin Story of the Alchemist of Arland
just a week away in Japan, Gust has a new five minute trailer showing off the PS3 and Vita remake's new features - namely, among many other additions, the adoption of Atelier Meruru
's battle system. You'll also get to see some exploration on the side. The remake adds new bosses, items, costumes, message logs, event replay, and cross-save.
There are also new dungeons, ones you might recall from Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru, like the Makina Domain, Ancient Tower of Abyss and Orthogalaxen - but they won't be exactly as you remember them in other games. There will even be a new 'time capsule' feature, wherein you put items inside, and ten days later you'll return to the capsule only to find a different item. Save data from other Atelier games on your system just might determine what you wind up with.
NIS America has not yet announced a Western release. Aside from the above trailer, you will find a number of new(ish) screenshots and artwork in our gallery below.
