gustAtelier Ayesha comes out on Thursday and if you’re willing to fork out a little bit more you’ll get the largest collection of Gust background music in a game to date.


Gust will sell a background music pack which includes tracks from 43 different albums. You’ll get tunes from official soundtracks from Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori, and Atelier Meruru plus songs from remix CDs like Atelier Iris Deceitful Wings. Even music from Cross Edge and Trinity Universe found their way into the Ayeshaverse. The background music pack, which has over 10 GB worth of songs, cost 300 yen ($3.75).

    Deffinetly worth it, Perfect DLC for a small price :P

     Darn my lack of Kanji knowledge! If i knew enough kanji I would import. I must tell my Japanese tutor to teach me more kanji so that I don’t have to wait for games like this to be localized.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Love for game my friend.^^ I myself is still lacking a lot in Kanji but with gaming spirit, i jump into the game lol.^^

  • Good god, the Meruru pack was already gigantic. If this is even bugger I don’t even know what the f*ck.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      For shame there  @spacedrake:disqus – that ‘f’ word will get ya caught automatic. Remember the all mighty *.

      •  I’m a bad, bad person. :(

        • Vulpis

           Now, now…just get EasyGameStation to send you another game to work on, and I’m sure all would be forgiven. ;-)

  • Barrylocke89

    I’m not a Gust fan (although I wouldn’t mind trying one of their games), but THAT is an excellent piece of DLC. If other games did something similar I’d be all over it.

  • Atelier Ayesha can’t get localized soon enough! =^_^=

  • Learii

    i love Gust games i be waiting to get localized

  • puchinri

    WOW. That’s really cheap.

    Is just the Arland series and the PS2 titles, or is it from the start of the series and onward? Because if it’s the latter, this is a done deal. @[email protected]

    Even though I really need to buy an external harddrive, I really, really want to throw my paycheck away on Atelier Ayesha. ;u;

    •  If it’s anything like the one from Meruru, it’s every freaking game in the franchise. It will be epic.

      • puchinri

        Ahhhhhhhhhhhh man. Many a tongue clicking. I really want this now. 

      • aquagon

        Actually, it’s more than that: includes pretty much EVERY freaking game in Gust’s history, and all the tracks in the rearrangement and special bonus CDS, with a few exceptions: Karyuujou, the two Welcome House games, Ares Ou no Monogatari, and the Ar tonelico and Surge Concerto series.
        We could also consider this as a OST release of sorts for games like Falcata and Meru Purana, in my opinion.

        • Oh, I know how big the Meruru DLC is and how big this is likely to be (edit: how big it IS, now that I actually looked at the tracklist!) It’s just that outside of a handful of Gust fanatics like us, stuff like Falcata and Meru Purana (or however in God’s name you’re meant to spell it) wouldn’t mean much. :V

          But yes, these music packs are impossibly epic. If anything, they’re almost too big to actually be useful in-game; I wish there was an easy way to access the tracks separately from the game!

          Also, interesting that Welcome House isn’t in there. I was always a little fuzzy on whether or not that was a licensed property of some sort. And I guess King Ares is too oldschool even for this. Hell yes at having Hermina & Culus tunes in there, though, that game is amazing.

  • I’d definitely pay that for the Totori music alone. Everything else is just a wonderful bonus!

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Wutt?? Meruru music there is also so sweet.^^

  • Hm… I wonder if it has Ciel no Surge songs…

    • Radiosity

      No chance in hell would be my guess, they’d want to be selling Ciel OSTs for full price while the game is current, after all.

    • aquagon

       Nope. You can check up the full list in the Gust site, and it doesn’t include anything from Ciel Nosurge or the Ar tonelico series.

      • Not even Ar tonelico… How sad, I was looking forward to put “Brave Beat” as my dungeon theme… or something

        But I guess those soundtracks costs a lot to make, so it makes sense that they want to sell those at full price

        •  It’s far more likely that it has something to do with the intellectual property rights to the Ar Tonelico franchise; unlike most of Gust’s IP, which is self-owned (well, was, now it’s all Koei-Tecmo ;.;) the AT games were co-developed with Banpresto and thus Namco-Bandai, and so the rights are shared. Including the AT songs probably would have, at the very least, risen the price considerably.

          • Oh, I see. That makes sense

            …  Oh well, Grand Phantasm “Criss Cross” will have to be my Dungeon theme then

  • Since I fell in love with Meruru’s battle themes, I’d definitely get this.  But 10GB holy mofo..would need to make some room first.

  • Just finished Totori, and taking a break from the series until I start up Meruru. Regardless, this game NEEDS to get over here.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    10 gig? Of ears goodness? SOLD Baby.^^ Hell importing them now.^^

  • Ravage27

    A 10GB dlc!? O.O

    I can’t believe we are getting all that for a mere $3.75! That’s $0.000375/MB!!!


  • Radiosity

    Only eight or so days to go! Including shipping time obviously. Though CDJapan did get P4G to me in five days rather than the usual six so maybe I’ll get lucky with Ayesha too :3

  • Carocaro4

    See? it’s stuff like this that I would throw money into cyberspace for. Now a sandwich or this? hrmmm.

  • Visa Vang

    I’m more of an CD guy though…
