Atelier Totori Adventures To North America And Europe This Fall

By Spencer . May 13, 2011 . 1:00pm


Totori and Rorona are smiling because they are heading overseas. NIS America will publish Atelier Totori on PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe this fall under the name Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland.


Set five years after the events in Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland, Rorona returns as a seasoned alchemist and mentor to Totori. An adventure seeker at heart, Totori leaves the small fishing village of Alanyaon in search of her mother. Catch up on Totori’s family history in this post. Since this is a Gust game, Atelier Totori just like Atelier Rorona before it there are plenty of items to synthesize and multiple endings to discover.


While you’re waiting for Atelier Totori to arrive in autumn, check out our impressions of the Japanese version.

  • Now we only need Meruru!

    • Wait one more year. 

      • Sal

        I’m okay with that cuz ’11 is full of games!

    • Guest

      and a Gamera game

    • Patience, grasshopper. They can only work on one title at a time.

    • CleruTesh

      Just be sure to buy this day one. The more people who do, the more likely we are to get it. Though given NISA’s track record, we’re pretty likely anyways… Still! Now that they’re in the black, let’s keep it that way!

  • Letiumtide

    Whooo! I have been waiting for this announcement for so long. <3

    • OneOkami

      You’re not the only one. 

  • Eddie

    YYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS! (in my best el blaze voice) I payed no attention to Meruru because I never thought we would get Totori. Boy was I wrong!

  • kroufonz

    adventurer of arland? meruru will be The princess of arland then

  • Zero_Destiny

    This calls for a montage of Barrels!!!!!!!! To celebrate this fine occasion. ^_^
    I <3 NISA :3

    • lurkingsalt

       What the hell. I thought no one ever made this montage. Freaking awesome. Too bad Rorona had no voiceover for Barrels in the ENG dub. I’m going to make a poll to include this in Totori. Not a gust game if they don’t say Barrel.

  • Rarutos

     GET HYPE! Take all of my money NISA! <3

  • yayyaayyayayayayayay! <3<3<3

  • AWESOM-O!! The wait was long but it was worth the torture!!!

  •  YES!!

  • IceRomancer

    NISA you won’t be happy until you have all my money, will you?

    Fine take it all you glorious bastards! :P

  • Finalstar2007

    Thank you so much NISA, cant wait

  • neetloaf

     I thought my body was ready.

    My body was not ready.

    • Better toughen up soon, cause the Fall’s coming quick ;) 

    • PrinceHeir

       I Love you NISA :P

    •  I can’t wait! I’ve played Rorona twice already and I’m on the third time. It’s just a wonderful game.

  • nyoron

    Try as I might I just can’t get into this series. A shame because I love the look of it too. I hope Gust eventually makes another game more along the lines of Ar Tonelico.

    • Lol, we both are alike. The reason why I’m not interested in the series is because it’s a turn-based RPG, I don’t enjoy these kinds of games at all. As for Ar tonelico, I was planning to buy that since it’s a real-time RPG. But when I realized that the whole game is all about fan service. I changed my mind.
      It seems nothing happens right for me.  -_-

  • Neckbear


    Thanks again, NISA!

  • kroufonz

    now excited to wait for premium edition announcement^^

    and the reveal of the game cover art (please do it right this time nisa! or just use the beautiful  japanese version cover)

  • So happy.  Maybe now they can release the other one that is coming out in Japan this summer during the spring and I can have myself a little Atelier party

  • still waiting for my copy of Rorona to arrive. Also hopefully theres no crazy premium edition for north america version

    • CleruTesh

      You don’t want there to be a crazy premium edition? Why not? Even if you don’t want to spend extra, no one says you have to buy that version.

      • It’s not that. I live in the United Kingdom and theres never crazy premium edition here. I will spend up to £80 to buy a premium/limited/collector’s edition of any game.

        • CleruTesh

          Oh, sorry. Well, I am envious of UK’s Persona 3 Portable pre-order t-shirt. So, yeah, it’s a shame there’s no easy way for our two countries to order stuff from the other.

  • Lenne

    yay i can’t wait for it to be released!
    liked rorona alot.. i wonder how totori will be like?

  • Need a PS3.  Buying these games later will be a pain. :(

    • Ryos

       And you’d be missing out on the quite fascinating LE releases too (if you like art books anyway).

      • I blame my love of the handhelds and lack of HDtv for not getting a PS3. lol  I do like art books as a LE.

  • *shaking and crying*

  • AnimusVox

    Ha this so made my year.  

  • This is Totori awesome

  • Barrit

    About time they made the announcement. Can’t wait to see the details of the LE!

  • HELL YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    God freaken finally!

    Nisa, will you marry me T.T

    I’m crying out pools of bloody tears from the happiness of this anouncement!


    • Apollonis

      Well, I was going to say something like this, though not quite as extreme, so that’s taken care of. *carefully steps over pool of bloody tears*

  • cmurph666

    I didn’t think you would be bringing all of these over. Well played NIS.

    Now I have to go buy the first part.

  • awesome!,  our prayers was listened XD

  • guntadela

    I bought the japanese version and loved it!
    Now, im buyin US version for sure!
    If NISA brings us a Premium version ill preorder ASAP!

  • HarryHodd

    Day Freaking One! Thank you NISA! This makes me feel better about Tales of Graces f in 2012.

  • Currently playing through Atelier Rorona and I got to say, I like it. Totori combines that with much better looking character models, the one thing I find very lacking in Rorona. I’m looking forward to it!

  • Klarktastic

    I have the first one since release. Still haven’t had time to play it  ( I did beat all the other atelier games tho)

  • Istillduno

    Body: ready.
    Wallet status: being pushed to critical :P.

  • Croix

     Localization announced as the next game in the series grows ever closer to release. If I remember correctly, this is exactly how it was with the last iteration in the series, so I’m okay with this.

  • Oh yes! Now I just need to. Actually finish Rorona, but this is cool! :)

  •  Finally, NISA. I’ve been waiting for those words.

  • DanteJones

    Good Lordy!! I can’t effing wait, auuuuuuuggggghhhhhh!!!

  • AnimusVox

    I was beginning to think this game was just a myth. 

  • KyoyaHibari

     Wow damn, Nis is pretty confident, I thought they said that Disgaea 4 was their trump card, where did all this come from?

  • Natat

    Damnit NISA, at this rate you’ll take all my money again.

  • Yukito

    Cannot wait. :)…. Rorona was great. This makes now 5 PS3 games NISA is localizing for 2011 just for PS3. They are hella busy there.

  • This made my week! YES NISA!

  •  Just got rorona, will be looking forward to it, but i need to know how much is difference, Rorona is fun but it still feels so empty…

    • HarryHodd

      Pretty sure Totori is a step above Rorona in almost every way.

      How far are you in Rotona btw?

      • Umm, just started, im about to reach the end of the first assigment, and i admit, i dont like too much that Time is consumed even if i go to the bathroom xD, but well, is something i can deal with, but i dunno, the town feels like a ghost town o-o’

  • holyPaladin

     Thank you very much NISA, I’ve been waiting for this announcement :D

  • Darkrise
  • YESS!! one more to go.

  • Ravage27

    YES!!! Time to celebrate woooohooo!! ^ ^

  • BadenBadenPrinny


  • hadjimurad

    seeing so much positive reaction to a localization announcement just feels good!

  •  So are they going to leave the camera tilt in this one?

  • The article picture says it all.

  • Gaaaaaah…!! So many good games all at once…!! Can’t keep up..!
    Hell, I haven’t even played Ar Tonelico 3 for more than an hour D’:

  • amyfarron

     Siliconera did a live playtest of Totori, but it’s the Japanese version. Here’s the link to part 1 if you wanna watch it, so you can see what Totori is like:

  • regreto

  • AzureNova

    Time to get our alchemy on ^_^

  • Kai2591


    Thank you NISA~

    Additionally, I’ll finally be able to play a game with the voice of Rie Kugimiya in it~

  • Congrats for all Atelier fans out there.
    It’s great to see more Japanese games comes in English.

  •  Good stuff! I was hoping to be able to play this. 

  • noctis_nox

    I am about to cry!! I thought this game won’t even be localized due to the lack of news. I shouldn’t Doubt NISA anymore. Keep bringing up the goods NISA!!!

    In NISA we trust!!

  • A God does exist! And it’s called NISA!

  • Yay! Now I can restart Rorona to get ready for this!…

    2 down… one to go… Meruru you’re next!

  • SerendipityX

    <3 NISAAAAA!!!! *q*
