But, it doesn’t look eye-poppingly gorgeous like Atelier Rorona. Gust went with a cel-shaded look for Rorona, while Ar Tonelico III uses 3D models. Cutscenes are still in 2D as seen from this batch of screenshots (thanks for the tip Xeahnort!!)
Wait a second… did that last screenshot say “undress” in the menu option?
Yeah, it did! Install, present, and undress are options Aoto can pick when deciding what to do with Saki, one of the reyvateils. Don’t get too excited, it’s probably the game’s way of asking if you want to change Saki’s costume.
Ar Tonelico III comes out in Japan on January 28, 2010. Pre-order it there to get a visual data book.
And, here’s a teaser trailer, courtesy of Joystiq.
