Atelier Rorona

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to quickly drop by (so it will be a short post!) and remind you guys that Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland will be shipped tomorrow, 9/28, exclusively to PS3! I’ve been hearing from many of our fans that they just can’t wait until the release date of Atelier Rorona … But there’s no need to wait any longer! Well, just one more day. :)

You’ll have lots of synthesizing to do in this game. Yes, expect to have a lot of them. And you might be stuck with some synthesizing assignments at times … You do know that that can happen sometimes, right? So, I wanted to share something that will encourage/ motivate you to get through those tough assignments!

Here you go! ;-)

Atelier Rorona

Let Rorona be your cheerleader! Ha ha ha … Ahem, alright I’m gonna get serious for a while. I want to share the trophy list of Atelier Rorona with you! There are a total of 53 trophies. Enjoy getting all of them!

Lastly, I am so happy to hear many of you enjoying Cladun: This is an RPG! Nippon Ichi Software really makes great RPGs! I am sure you heard of the US release announcement of Disgaea 4, and you must be shaking with excitement! Well, Disgaea 4 is coming out next year, so let’s first get excited about NIS’ other awesomely crazy dungeon RPG, Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger VS. Darkdeath Evilman for PSP next month! Z.H.P. was created by the same team that developed the Disgaea series. So, you know it’ll be as crazy as Disgaea! Don’t forget to check out the ZHP official website as well!

Thank you for reading my post again! It was a quick post, but I hope you enjoyed it :)

Have a Roron-awesome week!

Best,
nao

Is there an option to flip the package art for the original Japanese version, or are we gonna have to get to work with our Photoshop-fu?

That aside, it’s cool to see Atelier Rorona finally get here. Looking forward to it!

Yeah!!!! I’ve had mine pre-ordered for a long while now. I’m not a big fan of timed games, but beggers can’t be chosers when it comes to JRPGs this gen. And who knows, maybe it’s not as grating as I’m imagining.

Please keep the PS3 RPGs coming! The more traditional, the better!!! Luv ya Nao!

The series release on the Nintendo DS made me want to cry it was so bad.

Has this entry into the series made an improvement to gameplay (not talking graphics)? And if so how?

Wow so many endings and some much replay value!!!!! Awesome!

Already pre-ordered it a few months ago! The trophies seem hard though – obtaining all endings is a bit cruel.

I have my Premium Box pre-ordered and paid off at Gamestop! I can’t wait to pick it up tomorrow! :)

…I hope this also means that the PSN Avatars get released tomorrow too, but I’m not holding my breath. ;)

+ Sancho45 on September 27th, 2010 at 8:23 am said:

I’m definitely psyched for Disgaea 4. It looks like its going to be awesome. I’ve never heard of this game though but it sounds interesting. I wish I wasn’t so broke right now :(

Look at all those endings, damn, this is gonna take a while lol

This flew under the radar again. I might have something to play this holiday season after all.

I played the first 3 on the PS3, look forward to this now.


15

+ Slythex on September 27th, 2010 at 8:37 am said:

Question for you, Nao!

I can’t find the answer anywhere if Gamestop in Canada will be carrying the Premium box. I don’t want to miss out on that awesome artbook!

Thanks!

Hello

If this game does well in game sales will NISA bring out more of the Atelier games like Atelier Judie for the PSP.


17

+ rpgki on September 27th, 2010 at 8:50 am said:

w00t, finally!!!, just 1 more day, i really hope that this game can sell very well, or at least make NISA expectations, so they can bring more amazing games, now waiting for ar tonelico and disgaea 4, good luck with your projects NISA!!!!, by the way, is there a possibility that Neptune can be released in NA?.

sorry 4 my english =P

Anyone care to point me in the direction of some gameplay videos? Sounds fun at least but would love to see it.
Oh and forgive me but I am going to post this until someone answers.

Jeff can you please tell me why I can’t earn trophies for RE5 Gold? I bought it same day I bought my Move and love it but for some reason I can’t get trophies for it!! Oh and I had some for the orignal version but since I started Gold no trophies unlock..help!!!???

Dear NIS.

Girds and standing still are getting boring. I still enjoy your games but I don’t find myself running out to buy them first week or even month. They have turned into the same old thing.

DISGAEA 4 is a great example of this. TRY SOMETHING NEW!

Check out Resonance of Fate. Its time for a change.


25

+ piratedrunk on September 27th, 2010 at 10:32 am said:

Dear NIS

Your games are never boring. I buy them as soon as possible. Disgaea 4 is a great example of a game I will pre-order.

In an industry that keeps moving away from classic gameplay that I love I hope you stick to your roots.

Thank you.

@25

Couldn’t have said it better myself, agreed

+ KillerDante on September 27th, 2010 at 10:47 am said:

Thanks for the game, I buy all your games. I got Cross Edge and Disgaea 3 and even Trinity Universe. Thanks for importing those type of games to the US. Just wondering if Best Buy will sell it as they didn’t really have Last Rebellion. Quick question, those ending trophies, must you have to restart the game everytime or is there a +new game type option.


28

+ AlexLucard on September 27th, 2010 at 10:50 am said:

@27 – there is a new game plus option in Atelier Rorona, and although the list of endings looks intimidating, you can get a lot of them in a single playthrough. Really you have to play the game four times to get certain ones – Bad, Normal, Good, and True. You can get multiple character or “path” endings in a single playthrough. Best of all, you can get the true ending on your first playthrough.

hi,nao! finally i will get the chance to play this gorgeous game!
anyways, i have a question about the game besides the trophy list,does this game have any online components such as leaderboards?

also, i have a request for disgaea4 since the game is already beign developed by our friends at nis.could you please talk to the japanese branch of the company to ask them if they can add custom soundtracks to the game (the ability to listen to the music stored in our hard drives, instead of the game’s natural music.)needless to say,that not only i but at least half of disgaea fans would apreciate your help in this request,thanks!

hope you have a great week over there! :0)

ohhhhhhhhhhh please NIS could you please pick up… ahh crap, I can’t read the Japanese name but it has “Neptune” in the title. Please pick that up for release in the US!


33

+ marlyt on September 27th, 2010 at 12:28 pm said:

Can anyone tell me…Is this game in English or Japanese. I want to play it but don’t want to read subtitles the whole time like with Yakuza 3. It ruined the game for me. Thanks.


34

+ Moonglare on September 27th, 2010 at 12:40 pm said:

@33
The game is in english, both voices and subtitles =)

Already got my collectors edition paid for, and I couldn’t be more excited. Thank you NISA for bringing over all of these wacky RPG’s that no one else would ever touch. I’m also really looking forward to Ar Tonelico 3, Neptune, and of course Disgaea 4. I love you guys.

Already preordered it! Can’t wait to play this game and do
do some alchemy! It’s been a long time since I played an
atelier game and Atelier Rorona is just what I needed! Thank
you very much, NIS!!! Keep up the good work! I’ll be getting
Ar tonelico 3 (Qoga) as well when it’s announced and
confirmed for US!!!


37

+ KillerDante on September 27th, 2010 at 1:47 pm said:

@28 Thanks for answering that question. Although I like these games a lot, i get stopped because of the online multiplayer games now a days. Sucks trying to back into a story and forgetting most it. Sigh, so many games and so little time.

+ n4nobust3r on September 27th, 2010 at 2:17 pm said:

already preordered! and waiting for ar tonelico qoqa, disgaea 4! you guys awesome! (not like certain publisher that hasn’t release any single PS3 JRPG in the west!, you know that T**** game :p)

but there is a little suggestion for NISA, next time if you make logo only as cover art, could you give us double cover/ reversible cover that has beautiful character art in it please!

that rorona pic you used in this blog post could make a beautiful cover art!

only japan and european got rorona in their cover art.

NISA doing nice job for jrpg fans this gen! constantly bringing us JRPG to PS3 and always include the dual voice option excellent job guys!

someday i hope maybe you can bring PS3 Visual novel to the west (i suggest the upcoming Fortune Arterial or Umineko no naku koroni HD all on PS3)

and also still waiting for some totori announcement too!

Have it fully paid up and will be picking it up either tomorrow or Wednesday, whenever it comes to my local Gamestop. Thank you, once again, for being loyal to PS3 owners. NISA = First Day Buy For Me.

Btw, I know you’ve announced Disgaea 4 and Ar Tonelico 3 (I don’t feel like looking up the “Q” word), but I was wondering if you had a rough estimate of a release date for either of them. Also, any hope for Neptune?

Thanks again.

I already got my copy thanks to the NIS America store. I’ve been addicted to it and really love it. The soundtrack and hardcover artbook are awesome. I really hope the next Atelier comes stateside on PS3, and I’m looking forward to Ar Tonelico 3, ZHP, Disgaea 4, and anything NIS America releases on PSP/PS3.

I’m so stoked about Disgaea 4. I can’t wait to pre-order this game. Hey Nao can you answer these questions for me please if you can?

1)Will there be any DLC for Disgaea 4?

2)Any word on the avatars?(I’m really dying for a Prinny, Laharl, and Mao avatar.:D)

You know Nao Bandai Namco used to be my favorite game company when it came to making RPGs but they’ve became douches lately when comes to localizing them for PS3. But screw them NIS is my favorite game company now. I really want to say thank you for localizing these RPGs to the Western Audience. Other companies could really learn from you. *cough* Bandai Namco & Square Enix *cough*
