Many Characters From Atelier Rorona Return In Atelier Meruru

We’ve already seen a bunch of characters from Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland in Atelier Meruru. Gust’s next game in the series and the final title in the Arland trilogy includes some of Rorona’s friends too. All pictures below are what the characters look like in Atelier Rorona.



Gio, one of the playable characters in Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland, returns. He’s 60-ish in Atelier Meruru.



Astrid, Rorona’s teacher, is in Atelier Meruru and she looks just like she did in Atleier Rorona.



Pamela also returns.



Sterk, the loyal knight, is now a dashing man nearing 40 in Atelier Meruru. He’s a playable character and so is Esty. She now supervises Geo in an Arland intelligence agency. In battle, Esty uses spears. Atelier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland 3 does not have encounters on the world map. Players can also equip two accessories, which can have a dramatic affect on your characters.


Dengeki PlayStation revealed one new character. Juana, according to Yoshito Okamura, is a busty 17 year old girl who works at a general store.

  • No current pics of the characters ;-;? *searches*

  • mikanko

    I need a DeLorean so I can go to Fall 2012 and pick this and Totori up already.

  • Sal

    Esty as a playable character? FINALLY!

    • Rarutos

      This so much, Esty was so unloved before! She didn’t even come back in Totori when a lot of other characters did, and got a sister instead!

    • Methylene

      Well I know who I’m always bringing into battle~

      • Sal

        Esty and Mimi! 2 spears better than 1!
        (or whatever Mimi’s weapon is)

  • So how many years have passed since Rorona? 15 or so?

  • Merulana

    YES! I knew Sterk and Pamela would make it in, but Gio and Esty?! And I guess in Arland, it’s a fad for guys to grow their hair out longer the older they get. lol. I want to see an adult Rorona now!

  • IceRomancer

    Yay Pamela and Sterk :D
    And interested to see what Juana looks like :)

  • Sria Lightfoot

    Also, you should note that Astrid has a different outift than she did in Rorona. She may have the same physical appearance, but she’s definitely not the exact same as she was in Rorona.

  • HarryHodd

    Cool I’m glad I finished Rorona. Might be time to play through again.

  • Methylene

    This game cannot come here fast enough.

    • Merulana

      Which is precisely why the world is going to end in 2012.

  • Yukito

    Where is Lionela? :(

  • Merulana

    Crap. I just realized something. Now that Astrid’s back, all hope for a Rorona/Sterk ending has just gone down the drain. </3

  • Sterk AND Gio! Hell yes!
    I can’t wait to throw them in with these parties of pretty young girls~
    Though choosing my main final party is going to be hell T.T

  • Yay, Esty is finally playable! Glad to see Sterk and Gio returns, too – loved them back in Rorona. Oh, and it’s not an Atelier game without Pamela. ;D

  • AzureNova

    Busty + 17 = Awesome, Mmmmmmmmm indeed lol

  • Crimson_Cloud

    The character design is truly adorable.

  • Wonderful! Gio with a debonair beard.

  • PrinceHeir

    Pamela O_O

  • Could somebody do me a huge favour and tell me who the concept artist/character artist is for the Atelier series? 
    Thank yoo
