During a livestream out of Japan hosted with the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Atelier developer Gust made a surprise announcement that will make many fans of the series content.
The remasters will span the Entire Arland trilogy, including Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland, Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, and Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland.
The original games were published between 2009 and 2011 in Japan for PS3, and they’re coming with a fresh coat of paint to PS4 and Switch. The standard edition of every game will price 4,800 yen plus taxation, while a “Premium Box” edition will launch priced at 13,800 yen plus taxation. It will incorporate all 3 games, a miniature crystal paperweight (Gust really enjoys those), along with three acrylic charms featuring the 3 heroines of this game. You can take a peek at their designs in the bottom of the post.
A downloadable form of the whole trilogy (of course without the bodily bonuses) are also available for 10,800 yen plus taxation.
Below you can have a look at the trailer broadcasted through the event. Naturally, a western launch hasn’t been declared for now.
