Atelier Totori: The Adventurer Of Arland Trailer Ventures On The Internet

By Spencer . July 18, 2011 . 10:05pm

NIS America gave us a small peek at Atelier Totori’s localization. This trailer has all of the official names for the English version and a few snippets of voice acting. The main character, Totori (full name Totooria Helmold), goes off on an adventure to find her mother. Rorona returns, this time older and wiser (but she still loves pie), as Totori’s mentor.



Fans can pick up a limited edition bundle which includes the PlayStation 3 game, a soundtrack CD, and art book bundled in an oversized box on September 27. A standalone game will also be available, but NIS America have not announced prices for either version.

  • KotaroInugami

    Whenever the words ART and BOOK are bonuses in a game, it’s an instant preorder for me. *Sigh* I’m so easy to please. :P How embarrassing.

    • DanteJones

      Indeed, especially when it’s the same price as most games that come out nowadays, except we get free swag. :O

  • Barrit

    Having just finished Rorona recently, I’m pretty excited about Totori. What perfect timing :) I liked Rorona a whole lot more than I expected and I’m really looking forward to seeing how much more polished this game is compared to Rorona.

    Disgaea 4, Totori, and I eventually want to pick up the Bleach game.. Ugh, my poor wallet! Keep ’em coming NISA!

  • Everything about that trailer fills me with excite. Except Rorona’s voice. Not digging that…

    • Azuku

      Sounds like the same VA from Rorona to me, and I remember Rorona’s
      English VA being pretty awesome. But, that’s just like, my opinion, man.

  • haqua

    Okay, these speakers really suck and make all sounds 2x higher pitched, but… was that Johnny Yong Bosch as Sterk?

    • Zero_Destiny

      Nope it’s definitely Liam O’Brien as Sterk just like in the first game if I’m remembering right.


      • haqua

        Okay, thank God because I was about to freak out for a moment. Liam is my favorite VA, so… ;;

        • Sal

          JYB did Iksel in Rorona, I suppose he will do Iksel in Totori too.

          • haqua

            Well, that’s fine, since I like JYB (and Iksel aaa). But if he was Sterk? Naaah.

    • Neckbear

      Liam O’ Brien, actually.

      Edit: Zero Ninja’d me.

  • Yukito

    Can not wait for this. To be honest, I am expecting it to me one of my GotYs. Totori is cute as hell, the freedom evolves from Rorona, the mother thing has piqued my interest, and hell, Sterk is back and as badass as ever!

  • Zero_Destiny

    Nice to see a whole trailer now. Everyone sounds pretty good. Seems like most if not all actors will be reprising their roles. At least this trailer makes me think so. ^_^  I can’t wait to get this game. I’m ecstatic that it’s another big box with Artbook inside. I’m gonna put it right on my shelf next to my big box Rorona and put the artbook right on my bookshelf next to all the other awesome NISA artbooks. <3 So mainly what I'm saying is that I'm a big nerd and I love all of NISA's awesome bonuses. :D

  • HarryHodd

    Easily one of my most anticipated games. Really enjoyed Rorona and this one looks much better. Is that city from the trailer in the game?

  • Yes Gust! Yes!

    I’ve been waiting on this game for two years, so it’ll be an insstant day one buy for me, at all costs!

    My GotY <3

  • I can’t believe NISA hasn’t confirmed If this or Bleach will have dual audio yet.

    • Neckbear

      They actually confirmed Bleach to have dual audio in the forums.

      And, besides, it’s NISA. Of course it’s going to have dual audio.

    • I have the US version of Bleach and I can confirm it has dual audio. You can switch between English and Japanese voiceovers from the game’s menus.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Nothing said so far, but will Gamestop also be getting a special edition like with Rorona (i.e. game + art book, while other stores like Amazon will only get the game)?

    • Soma

      If Hyperdimension Neptunia and Ar Tonelico Qoga were any indication, it is very likely that Gamestop will get a very limited amount of the deluxe version of the game with Art Book and Soundtrack CD.

      • Yeah my local ones ran out fast! Preorder is best for wherever you decide to get it! But don’t forget that NISA preorders toss in extra goodies :)

        • Soma

          Yes! Very true. The Gamestop ones are usually only limited to pre-orders, but NISA always throws in some extras (like the playing cards with Neptunia), so be sure to pre-order this one!

  • Room201

    Now all we have to know is when and where to pre-order the Limited Edition Bundle.

    • epy

      Exactly. I’lljust pre-order the limited edition from amazon as soon as it is ready. I’m not going through auctions in ebay to get these ever again… man what a pain that was.

  • kroufonz

    Ok nisa now let us know what kind of limited/premium edition totori will have.

    and this time please let us have beautiful cover art (with totori in the cover)

    • Champ W

      Do you by any chance know why NISA changed the cover for Atelier Rorona?

      • Xerain

        Are you asking or suggesting it is common knowledge? If the later, please provide a link to NISA’s actual statement, as I’m curious to here their reason for the minor cover change.

        • Champ W

          I have no idea if it’s common knowledge or not; I simply wondered if there’s any reason behind it because I am also curious about the minor cover change as well.

          • Xerain

            Oh, OK. Your post can be interpreted with a completely different tone than you intended it. It seemed like you accused the previous poster of being ignorant. So I was wondering if there was something I missed.

            I was also worried you might subscribe to a certain blog’s well known and obviously biased opinion that it was because Rorona was too loli for North America. Not saying that can’t be the reason… just that I don’t consider their opinion on the matter to be any more informed than yours or mine.

          • Champ W

            I see, I apologize for causing the misunderstanding.

            And yeah, there were rumors around the cover change, but I never consider them as facts since they aren’t officially stated.

  • Xerain

    So does the premium edition leave the camera controls intact this time?

  • RagnaXBL

    Meh, if i find this 2nd hand i’ll buy it, not going out of my way to play this

    • haqua


  • Wackoramaco87

    So very excited for this! Definitely will make sure to splurge on the premium edition this time~!
    Going though the older Atelier games this summer, and I must say- it’s amazing how far GUST has come! =D

  • Wow the packaging looks BEAUTIFUL inside AND out!! I am very pleased :) Can’t wait to see what extra goodie the NISA Store will toss in! But… only ONE thing I can think of wrong with this… the fact that it will be coming out the same month as Disgaea… So expensive, and I hope the products won’t compete with each other too much. At least Neptune and Ar Tonelico had about a month apart when they were released. I just wish Disgaea and Totori would be spaced out more… Sept will be a VERY expensive month for me!

  • Bōkensha-chan yōyaku kita!!!

    It even comes with pre-order bonuses, including an art book! This will be one more precious game for my library, all right.

  • Kai2591

    Once again, I shall go for the Limited Edition bundle! Hell yeah~

  • mikanko

    Seriously just want to be able to preorder this on amazon nao! >_<

  • If the premium edition is up for sale on Canadian retailers, I’m sold.

    I’m looking at you Rorona, who didn’t have anything at all :(.

    • KotaroInugami

      That’s odd. Even we here in America got the little art book. >.>

  • Why can’t they release the LE’s in Europa,too? DX

    • Xeahnort

      I think Tecmo-Koei Europe is too lazy to release a Limited edition in Europe

      Nobody cares about us.

      • Shinji Kazuya

        I guess we should be happy we’re getting the game.

    • You can buy it from NIS Store if you want the LE. Probobly cheaper to as buying it with Euro is pretty stupid nowdays when the $ is so low.

    • Because its cheaper to order it from the NIS Store. They even send it home to you, so where exactly is the problem?

  • I need a PS3!!!

  • Shinji Kazuya

    God! I was assuming Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori were very similar, and while there is some similar stuff, this is like a completely different game compared to Atelier Rorona. Everything  is polished up ways there!
    Damn, gotta hurry and finish Atelier Rorona so I can fully enjoy this one! :3

  • awesome! the combat looks so much better this go round aswell (not that its a focus…i suppose)

    everything looks so much more polished!
    i need to hurry and finish out rorona…i somehow stopped playing it.

    the box is much improved too!

    EDIT: just noticed, the release is 4 days after my birthday :D

  • I really gotta get into rorona NOW OR NEVER

    • HarryHodd

      Just do it!

    • Ravage27

      Yes just do it!!! ^3^

  • AzureNova

    Ive fallen in love with the Atelier world and NISA all over again. I cant wait to get my hands on this! Pre-ordering this is a must!

  • AnimusVox

    ‘Rorona returns, this time older and wiser (but she still loves pie)’

    There’s a sexual innuendo in there somewhere.

  • Merulana

    I’ve been waiting 2 years for this…
    And nothing’s gonna stop me from getting it!I’m not really digging the English VAs though… ): Actually. Just Rorona’s :X At least it’ll most likely have dual audio.

  • I can’t wait for this! I’ve been looking forward to this for so long.
    It’s a great game, but I couldn’t really understand much. So it’ll be great to be able to play it in English. Rorona’s voice sounds kind of forced, to be honest. No big deal. There’ll definitely be a dual audio option. Darn it. I just wished it didn’t come out during such a busy time of year! ): 
    Just right around when school starts… Uuugghh.
