    I was waiting for this. I just discovered the serie with Totori Plus. I’ll be glad to see Gino, Mimi and Sterk once again.

    • Radiosity

      I’d say you missed out on Rorona… but since Gust are apparently toying with the idea of a full remake for Rorona maybe you didn’t :) Unlike the sequels Rorona really looks dated now, hence why there’s not been a plus version of it, it’ll take more than a few new scenes, costumes and a new area to bring Rorona in line with these releases.

  • Astraye

    I really loved Totori plus, can’t wait for this one !

  • So all plus Atelier games include Japanese audio right?

    • refrain

      Yes. Not sure if Ayesha will get a plus version though

      • I hope it does

        • I’m hoping it does as well, Ayesha is a very addictive game and I’m on my god I dunno 3rd playthrough. I’d gladly do it all again on the go.

    • Altin

      Yes, so there is another thing that the “fanbase” can whine about now. I suggest “digital-only”.

  • Mr_SP

    It’s hard to feel excited… I enjoyed Meruru, but it’s a bit early to get it again…

  • JohnNiles

    So they added new events? Hmmmm.

  • Interface23

    PSN only or Retail this time?

    • TheExile285

      90% sure its DD only, same as Totori Plus

  • Migon

    I hope it will have dual audio as the PS3 version have that but this is Koei…

    • Kevadu

      Totori Plus was dual audio. It would be weird if this wasn’t…

  • Astraye

    Totori plus has dual audio so no reason Meruru don’t. And yes i think it will be like Totori, only on PSN.

  • Chim_era

    Hmm Maybe it is indeed a little bit too early … Just finished Ayesha too …
    but I really miss Sterk :p

  • ZekeFreek

    The worst Atelier game and not even a physical release? Yeah, thanks but no thanks.

    • Astraye

      The best with Totori.

    • $40956955

      These games are pretty decent not amazing but decent enough to be enjoyable

  • Eric Harris

    I have meruru LE but if this game as a physical release I’d abandon it for vita. But ofcourse it won’t so, good luck with your $40 digital games TK.

  • Yan Zhao

    Im one Trophy short of platinuming this game on PS3, I dont think I have the drive to do it all again :<

    • Testsubject909

      Then don’t aim for platinum trophies. Aim for fun.

      • Yan Zhao

        Its not that, my point is that I replayed the game so many times to get near platinum I dont think I can do another.

  • Sergio Briceño
    • Testsubject909

      That’s not a funny face.

      That’s the face anyone would naturally make if their face would naturally line up to… those.

  • yo1234

    Maybe i should wait for atelier escha & logy plus >_>

  • TheExile285

    TheExile285 is looking forward to this ^_^

  • michel

    If physical, will buy!…

  • Flandre Scarlet

    Don’t know why people are wondering about the dual audio. It was dual audio on the PS3 release, can’t imagine why they’d take it out here after they left it in in Totori+.

    Anyway looking forward to this a bit, if only for more Totori and Mimi.

  • Is it just me or

    In Rorona’s game, rorona’s artwork look like she is 15+ years old but in the in the game 3d model she looks like 8-9 years old.
    In Totori’s game, Totori’s artwork also look like 15+ years old and her in game 3d model looks like 12-13 years old.
    In Meruru’s game, Meruru’s artwork looks like she is 16-17 years old and her in game 3d model she looks like 16-17 years old.

    • TheExile285

      I don’t know about Rorona but Totori looked 12-13 years old in both her artwork and 3D model in Totori Plus

  • Göran Isacson

    I am just gonna be an immature five year old and giggle at the fact there’s a character with the name “Esty Dee”. She can’t be getting many suitors.

    Because… the name… oh say it out loud a few times, you’ll get it.

    • ShadowDivz

      Ahhh, i got it now. First time i was like “hm… kay?”

      • Göran Isacson

        It’s good to see that there are others out there that can see it. Immature and childish as it may be, when I see something like that I can’t help but giggle a little.

  • Aqua King

    Any news on physical copies for this or Totori? I don’t want to waste space on my vita with downloads. :/

    • ShadowDivz

      How is a game wasted space?

      • Aqua King

        It honestly wouldn’t be, weren’t the SD Cards maxed out at 32GB.

  • FetusZero

    Glad to see this coming, or rather, see Tecmo do something about it. Even though it’s my least appreciated Atelier in recent years, I will likely get it.

  • Lester Paredes

    Hopefully, they’ll give us a bit more warning about it’s release date than what they did for Totori Plus.
