Making Of The Atelier Meruru Crystal Paperweight

By Spencer . April 25, 2011 . 2:03am

Gust packed a crystal paperweight with limited edition copies of Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori. Atelier Meruru, the next and last game in the Arland series, also includes a crystal paperweight. While Gust was experimenting with different molds, one of their prototypes was blue. The first one was also too thick, compared to Gust’s other products.

Just the other day a sample came through. Gust shared a photo of it and a picture of all three paperweights together.

Atleier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland 3 comes out on June 23 in Japan and the premium box, which includes the crystal paperweight, costs 10,290 yen ($125).

    Oh!~ Precious!

    Gotta get one of those.. The one with the color that doesn’t correspond to your room’s.

    I wish i could have one of these crystal paperweight. Unfortunately, they are too expensive and they look pretty fragile to order one of these from Japan, postmen are no longer reliable.

    I love things like this, simple but really cool. :)

  • LE for $125? *heart attack*

    Here’s hoping Totori is in the pipeline for NISA after Disgaea 4.

  • IceRomancer

    I assumed by paperweight they meant Gust was announcing another video game. My mistake. :P

  • I’ll just laugh at the fact that the Meruru one is the only one facing the right way. (Rorona’s and Totori’s are facing backward)

    I suppose owning the other two helped a bit in that observation, but it’s still amusing either way.
