Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland

Do you know the Alchemist, Rorona? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Either way, we’re very excited to have you live Rorona’s story in the best way possible. If this is your first Atelier game, we’re confident you’ll be delighted by Rorona’s journey with its refined classic JRPG experience. For those familiar with Rorona, new adventures await her and her friends in Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland, which launches today on PS3 and PS Vita alongside lots of gameplay enhancements and additions.

Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland was developed with the intention of creating the full experience we would have loved for players to have in the original release, and more. New character models, new game systems, a new story — these elements have all been revamped using the core fundamentals of the other two titles in the Arland trilogy, Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru. We worked hard to preserve the depth of item synthesis/customizations, yet streamline the systems to create an experience that is enjoyable to both Atelier series fans and people discovering the series for the first time.

Totori, Meruru and other characters familiar to Atelier fans return to Atelier Rorona Plus. And an additional story has Totori and Meruru joining Rorona that is bound to stir up some trouble, too! This new tale adds about 30% more to the scenarios in the original story, giving you more depth into the characters, bringing you closer to them.

With the story unfolding around Rorona, it was important for us to really try to bring her and her world to life. So, the character model for Rorona was updated from the “chibi” style to one that is more true to the in-game illustrations to further pull you into the Atelier world. We also created new costumes for you to select from, another way familiar stories feel different in Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland.

No, you won’t come across super-realistic, macho muscle-man types toting guns in this game. Instead, you’ll experience a heartwarming tale of a girl growing up and mastering alchemy, and overcoming the challenges she comes across. All with the support of the relationships she has with the townspeople around her. After all, we aren’t aiming for reality — this is a true JRPG!

Through the Atelier series, we look forward to providing you with a new JRPG experience every year. We hope you enjoy this latest animated take on daily life.

Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist Of Arland is available today for PS3 at participating retailers and through PlayStation Store. The PS Vita version is available exclusively through PlayStation Store.

  • I might be wrong, but from what I understand Square was announcing their intents to keep producing titles for Vita, in Japan.

    It’s another story altogether if Square is willing to bring them over here, look at Type-0…so don’t give ’em massive props just yet…..

  • I love the Atelier series. Such a perfect game to pick up here and there while on public transport. Hopefully, there will be a physical handheld release for those Atelier games in the future.

  • Looking forward to playing this!

    Thanks for the physical release!

  • Sucks that the Vita version is digital again. Par for the course. TK, why do you hate JRPG fans? You put Deception IV at retail, which is FAR more niche than Atelier is… Don’t you know the audience you cater to on Vita?

    Wish I could play the Pluses on Vita. );

  • At least do some good sales for once. Atelier never drops that much on Vita sales.

  • #48, thank you for the info.

    Since Rorona Plus got a PS3 release (and a physical copy to boot), does that mean Totori Plus and Meruru Plus might be considered for a PS3 release? I’m fine with them being digital only.

  • Physical Vita version or im not interested

  • I like how 3/4 of the people commenting on this post have anime girl avatars. Also I might get this game……… after a year or 2 when i can get it for 20 bucks

  • ok its actually 15 out of 40 avatars but it did look like alot

  • Another digital only…. *sigh* Well you won’t be getting my money.

  • I am absolutely loving this game on my Vita! Thanks so much for localizing it and I am holding on to hope for a discount on totori and meruru plus? I would definitely buy them after experiencing Rorona plus on the vita :)

  • Will this be made compatible with PSVita TV anytime soon?

  • hey guys is anyone have problem with trophy with this game?? i earned one but it wont sync and its doesnt appear…
