The team at Japanese video game development studio Gust have released a brand new set of screenshots for their upcoming Playstation 3 / Playstation Vita remake of Atelier Rorona titled New Atelier Rorona: The Origin Story of the Alchemist of Arland (新・ロロナのアトリエ はじまりの物語 ~アーランドの錬金術士~).

Atelier Rorona was the first installment in the long-running series on the Playstation 3 and featured heavier alchemy elements and strictier time limits than later installments which mean’t it didn’t receive a Plus release like Totori and Meruru. This upgraded version is set to include completely remade visuals, improvements to the battle system and other gameplay mechanics, new events, dungeons, bosses, costumes and many other bits and pieces such as a cultivation system.

New Atelier Rorona is set for release in Japan during November 2013 with no international release date planned. The original Atelier Rorona game was released in North America and PAL regions during September-October 2010 by Nippon Ichi Software America.

  1. Man, GUST’s cel shading is world class. I mean, stuff like Tales of Xillia and Eternal Sonata always still look like 3D models, just very stylized. But GUST’s characters for these Atelier games? At least in screenshots, look perfectly like illustrations. Beautiful ones at that. Never ceases to amaze me. Shame the game world doesn’t live up to the quality of the characters though…

    I’ve yet to check this series out myself, as it always seems like I’m busy with another JRPG when these come out. Not to mention, they seem pretty “annualized” – there’s always news of the NEXT entry coming out as soon as the current one is out the door. Still, I’m going to make time for it one of these days.
