Gamefly has a listing for the Nintendo DS alchemy RPG dating it for October 29 with Koei as the publisher. Koei handles distribution for some NIS America games like Cross Edge and we’ll take the release date as a possible fall 2009 release. Atelier Annie made its debut in Japan this past March.
Atelier Annie has a lot of voice acting for a Nintendo DS game. If NIS America is handling this game they won’t be able to squeeze two language tracks on the cart. Listen to what the game sounds like in Japanese and decide if the voices are OK.
