That’s what this trailer for Atelier Violet: The Alchemist of Gramnad 2 mentions as it briefly introduces three new characters in the PSP version.
They are (in order of appearance) Sphere, Nanami, and Lapis. Sphere appeared in the PSP port of Atelier Judie. Lapis, a reserved girl is a bit afraid of her. Nanami is a cheerful girl with a sharp tounge who came from Karotte village to set up shop.
You’ll get to see how all the three newcomers interact with Violet on February 3 when Atelier Violet: The Alchemist of Gramnad 2 makes its debut on PSP.
