By Ishaan . November 2, 2010 . 10:48am


A retail listing for a PSP port of Gust’s Atelier Violet: Alchemist of Gramnad 2 has popped up at two online Japanese retailer lists.


Atelier Violet on PSP will be seeing a few upgrades and tweaks. Amongst the added features mentioned are three all new characters: Lapis, Nanami Shuret, and Sphere. Gust made new events and endings that involve the extra characters. Additionally, the game will receive a major UI overhaul to better suit the PSP screen.


Earlier this year, Gust announced a PSP port of the game’s prequel, Atelier Judie: Alchemist of Gramnad.

    this is good news! all hail to the new characters
    but seriously will altelier irs’s graphics ever change?

    • HikariStarshine

      They moved into 3D graphics with Atelier Rorona.

      And for whatever it’s worth, Atelier Judie and Atelier Violet were both originally made *before* Atelier Iris.

      • joesz

        I noticed it, I finished it last year.

        But what I meant in general and I also knew that atelier violet and judie were the grandmothes to the atelier iris.

        what I was trying to say is that they kept with this for years and I’m staring to think will they ever change it in the soon future?

        But you know what? change might just ruin it.nowadays people can’t just accept change that easily.

  • Wow, I guess NISA will still be active on localizing PSP games for the 2011!

    I really want to get into the series, and this may bring me in, after the brutal reviews of the PS3 Atelier game that just came out in the US.

    • DanteJones

      Atelier Rorona was actually pretty fun when I played it, I don’t know why the reviews for the game were so harsh. ;/ Hoping Totori comes over here too.

      • NA/EU doesn’t know a good game when they see one. That’s why we hardly get the good japanese RPG’s anymore. :/

      • Darkrise

        It’s because they’re fps fan boys and any other game that has space marines on steroids. Any game that has anime themes in it will get a chance to recieve harsh reviews. It’s just how it is in the west.

        • Agreed.
          Also problem in last generation of “gamers” who like the game in the first place not for story, characters, world, atmosphere and humor, but for the graphic. TBW I wanna Burn With Fire all of those scumbags, because it’s their fault that we donn’t get a lot of great JRPG’s (for example last games of Tales of series… for PSP and PS3). And because of that kind of “gamers” we don’t have remakes of old great Phantasy Star’s for PS2… sad, but true.

          Sorry for bad English, it’s not my first language :)

          • Its a shame that I have to endure the consequences of people of last generation, and I have to miss out on Tales games or for that matter other RPGs from Japan, because gamers failed to buy the RPGs of the past time.

          • You pissed me off. Really pissed me off with comment of yours. PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT GAMES IN THE PREVIOUS GENERATION SHOULD BE PUNISHED BECAUSE I CAN’T PLAY A GAME I DIDN’T EVEN HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT. And Tales of Symphonia sold EXTREMELY well in North America. The PS2 port didn’t come over. I’m done talking to you.

          • And people like YOU also missed out on buying it. YOU are part of the group that didn’t buy it. DON’T blame others. YOU are part of who’s to blame.

          • Missed? when i go to the US every time in like 2 years between each trip, i (with all my happines inside) get inside a gamestop and check every game in there, i always see ALL the tales of games, so dont expect them to get to you, you have to get to them.

          • @WildArms

            Well they arent sold for new so I cant imagine the money is going back to Namco Bandais coffers. I bought the US released PSP Tales (Eternia/Radiant Mythology) games because I thought it would show them that there was interest in bringing the other PSP Tales games out…but we see how that turned out :(

            Otherwise, Id have to go out and buy a PS2 just to experience those other games and then launch a hefty search to find the games for new, which probably would be a challenge

          • @Firo_Prochainezo Dude!!!! why so mad? lol. Tales of Symphonia may have sold well, but they gave it a sequel that received extremely mixed reviews and considering the size of the Wii user base in America, the game barely sold decently.

            I can think of quite a few RPGs that I missed and that since people most likely didnt buy enough of them they werent given remakes or continuations, like the acclaimed Makai Wars people bring up here, Star Ocean, enough people got to warrant HD version and PSP remakes, Disgaea too.

    • HarryHodd

      RPG gamer and and RPG fan gave it a 90 and 85 respectively. Mainstream reviewers like IGN are terrible reviewers of JRPGs this gen.

      • I didnt see a playtest here nor a review of gametrailers :( Amazon customer reviews for it have been lacking as well, so I havent been moved by my three favorite sites to get the game or to confirm the decision to not get the game.

  • Soma

    As a huge fan of Gust and the Atelier series, I hope that NISA will localize these games for North America.
    Please? :D

  • I wonder if they’ll ever release Atelier Judie PSP stateside.

    • joesz

      I don’t think it will happen kid.

      But still keep up your hopes it might just happen.

    • I guess it all depends on atelier rorona sales (maybe this one was decided because of atelier annie), this will start making a fanbase, if its big enough, they may continue…

    • Atelier Violet may have a chance here since she was introduced in Trinity Universe recently, and if they ever made a Atelier Marie remake this could also happen since she appeared in Cross Edge. I am hoping all these PSP ports get released here though.

  • Ereek

    Port me some Marie and I’ll buy 5 copies. Marie is the best.

  • I hope NISA releases these ports in america
