Early magazine leaks for Atelier Meruru explain the PlayStation 3 game has ten playable characters. That’s a bump up from Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, which had seven characters. Totori’s friends Mimi and Gino return as part of Atelier Meruru’s cast.
All characters in the game have a todome or finishing move. Each todome is exclusive to that specific character. Theme music for the character using the skill plays and a special attack animation is played on the screen. Atelier Meruru also has full voice acting for event scenes and Gust time scaled the loading times down so they are next to nothing.
Atelier Meruru is slated for release on June 23 in Japan.
