Gallery: Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland
Nippon Ichi's US branch is still merrily publishing some of the most fun niche JRPGs available and their upcoming PS3 release of Gust Co.'s Atelier Rorona: the Alchemist of Arland should absolutely please fans of this style of game. As you can see from the gallery below, the game looks fantastic using an excellent mix of lovingly detailed 2D portraits with 3D characters and environments.
NISA has also announced that two slightly different Premium Box versions of the game will be available. The first version can only be purchased at GameStop where pre-ordering the game will get you a beautiful 32-page hardcover full color art book. The other Premium Box will only be available through the NISA Online shop where that particular pre-order gets you the art book along with the official game soundtrack CD.
Here's a photo of that fine deal:
Both Premium versions have a MSRP of $59.99 and the release date for Atelier Rorona is September 28, 2010. If you're a big fan of the Atelier series or a new player who wants to try a really unique JRPG that offers up a surprising amount of depth (you get to use recipes to craft all sorts of neat stuff!), absolutely hit your nearest GameStop or the NISA Online shop and do that thing you do...
Rorona is waiting... and it's impolite to keep a lady waiting!
