Gust is giving Atelier Rorona, the first game in the Arland trilogy, a full remake for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. New Atelier Rorona uses Atelier Meruru Plus’ battle system as a base, which adds the turn order indicator and new special attacks.
Screenshots from the original Atelier Rorona are on the left and New Atelier Rorona screenshots are on the right for comparison.
Here’s a look at special attacks from classic Atelier Rorona (left) and New Atelier Rorona (right).

Fulfilling item requests is a key part of the game. New Atelier Rorona will give players a stamp on a bonus card if you exceed expectations. Similar to a bingo card, if you connect stamps in a row you can get a bonus like attack + 2 or defense + 2.
Speaking of Sterk, he has new costumes in New Atelier Rorona. Take a look at the Ocean Leader and Retro Worker.
