We finally got a look at Rorona as the mother of Atelier Lulua’s protagonist Elmerulia Fryxell, a.k.a. Lulua. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine provides more info on Rorona and some new characters. [Thanks, Ryuokutya2089.]
Here are some character details:
Rorolina “Rorona” Fryxell
A highly skilled alchemist. She goes around various regions as part of her work, so she’s often not around during important moments.
Rorona: “Is it the rebellious phase!? No, I’m just a failure!? Am I just a failure of a mother!? That’s it, right, Lulua-chan!?”
A coachman who does his work perfectly. He is one of the Chims homunculi, but he’s grown large thanks to a secret medicine. He addresses Lulua as “Nano Master” and Piana as “Master.”
Fiks Finis – A young magician. He appears to use cards as a weapon in battle. “Hahaha! Isn’t that great, Lulua! You can’t just ignore your bro like that!”
Nicodemus David Dieter (Nico) – A sailor called “Nico of the Raging Waves.” Nicodemus is a young man who was previously a pirate and is now an adventurer. He’ll participate in battle too.
Lionela Heinze – She has overcome her shyness and is now the storekeeper of the bar Alaholo. At the shop she has those two dolls to protect her.
Lastly, there’s something called the Alchemy Riddle Documents, described as a book that has numerous mysterious keywords. You’ll advance through the story, score recipes and skills by deciphering these keywords.
Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland releases in Japan in 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It’ll release in the West in Spring 2019 for PS4, Switch, and PC. You can read the latest from character designer Mel Kishida and producer Junzo Hosoi in our previous report.
