Gust’s first wave of downloadable content for Atelier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland 3 includes three party members packs. Players can turn Juana, Rufus, and Pamela into playable characters for 500 yen ($6.50) per character.
Juana, a storekeeper from Earls, uses a boomerang in battle. Rufus is armed with a whip and Pamela,
Rorona’s mentor the ghost who makes cameos in a number of Gust games, has an umbrella. Speaking of Rorona, the next issue of Dengeki PlayStation includes a code for a Rorona costume for Meruru. A Meruru music mix pack will also be available for 300 yen ($4). (note: Gemaga is also giving away a Totori costume with their next issue, which is pictured here.)
Gust is also giving all Atelier Meruru fans a new area to explore. Makina has new materials to harvest and gigantic monsters to fight. This addition is free. Atelier Meruru’s downloadable content will be available on the PlayStation Store starting July 28.
