Gust is giving Atelier Rorona a complete makeover instead of a port. New Atelier Rorona: Origin Story of the Alchemist of Arland has a new model for Rorona. "Classic Rorona" from the original PlayStation 3 game is on top and "New Rorona" is below.
In addition to enhanced graphics, New Atelier Rorona has a revamped battle system based on Atelier Meruru Plus and a Time Capsule feature. Players can put items in the Time Capsule which will change in different ways. If you have save data from Atelier Totori or Atelier Meruru there will be more variations on how items can change.
Gust added an Extra Time mode which you can access after clearing the game. New Atelier Rorona will have additional dungeons, events, several more maps maps, and a boss said to be the strongest in Atelier history.
New Atelier Rorona will be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in November. The game supports cross save so you can start the game on Vita and continue your progress on your PS3.
