New Atelier Rorona Has Additional Dungeons From Other Atelier Games

By Spencer . November 4, 2013 . 6:06pm


Gust added more adventures to New Atelier Rorona. On top of having Totori and Meruru in your party, Rorona can enter the Makina Domain, a DLC dungeon from Atelier Meruru, and a powered up Liechtein Soehnle from Atelier Totori called the Ancient Tower of Abyss in New Atelier Rorona. The Ancient Tower of Abyss has underwater areas so you have to watch the air gauge on the left and find air bubbles to keep going.

The Orthogalaxen dungeon has additional maps and Makina Domain has changes too.

Players will fight a new boss called Twin Mask in New Atelier Rorona.

Atelier series artist Mel Kishida made new illustrations for the game like Rorona wearing an outfit sent through a time capsule.



The time capsule is a new gameplay feature in New Atelier Rorona. You can put items inside and 10 days later you’ll get different materials back. The items you get will change if you have save data from other Atelier titles on your device.

New Atelier Rorona also has a message log feature and an event replay option. The game also supports Cross Save…

… and you can’t have an Atelier remake without new costumes so Gust created Bomb Bikini and Fool’s Tear outfits for Lionela.

    That time capsule costume….. the hell??? Lol xD

  • Boy, Astrid looks like she’s about to kill herself laughing in that picture…

    Interesting to hear about the added dungeons though. I really wonder how much of an extension there’ll be to the gameplay…

  • Nitraion

    After all sequel everything back to beginning…
    I love they didn’t forget about lionela

  • Suriel Cruz

    In that new illustration, Rorona looks like a Futuristic Magical Girl. xD

  • Dark Zerato

    I don’t think Lionela would wear a bikini and go around like that. She’s too shy.

    • Mr_SP

      I don’t think anyone in the game would wear a bikini and go around like that.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        expect for mel

        • Mr_SP

          Well, maybe… It’s more like a bra and an open jacket. But the point is made.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Actually I meant her willingness to go around in bikini if it suited her she would, that’s the kind of person she is.

  • LM009

    yay original hom costume is the best! also too bad they swapped out the squirrel trio for makina :P I definitely would’ve taken rorona, totori, and meruru there for a face off

  • JohnNiles

    Ooh, event replay~

  • Slayven19

    I really like that jester looking costume by Lionela

    >The items you get will change if you have save data from other Atelier titles on your device.
    Now GUST can really take my money.

  • Please stateside… holy hell man cant believe they’re improving this much upon the original game.

    Gimme gimme.

  • Yan Zhao

    Looking forward to the western release.

  • laurenhiya21

    Ah I really like this artist’s style~
    Anyways, can’t wait till it comes out :> (I’m pretty sure it will be localized…) Only problem is, is that I won’t know which Atelier game to start with :<

  • Audie Bakerson

    “and you can’t have a Atelier remake without new costumes”

    I never heard of the Judie and Violet remakes getting extra costumes.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      That’s cause they weren’t popular enough

  • Cazar

    So, I have the original Rorona but never got very far because I had trouble getting into it. But I still want to give Totori and Meruru a chance, namely the plus versions, because they’re supposedly a big step forward, but I don’t want to do so without completing the Rorona storyline first.

    Should I scrap the old Rorona entirely and just wait for this version? Or just tough it up and finish it? Or should I just play both and play this new version after I finish Totori and Meruru (assuming I like them enough)? Money is also a notable factor, and the dreadful feeling of having an incomplete game in my collection.

    • Rogerrmark

      You can play Totori and Meruru without losing TOO much content.

      Of course you won’t see Rorona developing Arland little by little,or see how she saved the workshop.Some reappearing characters as well,but that’s about it.I would choose to play the remake after Totori and Meruru.

      • Cazar

        Thanks for the replies @Rogerrmark & @Fenfen (for some reason filters blocked out your comment). I’ll definitely go ahead and play Totori & Meruru before worrying about this version of Rorona. Whether or not I finish the original version I’ll just leave up to how much free time I have.

  • Renvile

    So buying all 3 of it when this one gets localized. Never happier to own a VIta.

  • Silent

    How about having a fresh ADDITIONAL WESTERN RELEASE?

  • XiaomuArisu

    Totori seems to like half naked Rorona XD

  • Deekei

    I want Rorona figurine in that costume NOW

  • Kornelious

    Im as hyped for this as I am for Hyperdimension Rebirth. Now this just need a PHYSICAL localization, and hopefully a collectors edition and I’ll be happy….Talking to you TK!

  • Guest

    Obviously some textures looks a bit less detailed on Vita, but it really isn’t a big deal. Great job there !
    Please please please localize ! Neptunia Re:Birth 1 and Atelier Rorona and my life will be compleeeete

  • artemisthemp
