Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland is a RPG game published by Gust, Koei Tecmo Games released on July 22, 2014 for the PlayStation Vita.
Atelier Rorona Plus is a remake of Atelier Rorona, which debuted on the PS3. It is the 11th game in the Atelier series and the 1st game in the Arland trilogy
Atelier Series Description
The Atelier games are a series of “crafting” time management RPGs where you gather materials from the field and monsters and use them to synthesize a variety of items via alchemical reactions. The synthesis system, although simple in practice, gives you a decent amount of customization on your items. Throughout the game, you will be obtaining better materials, which you will then use to make and remake items for better effects.
Every few months, you will be given assignments where you turn in specific items or perform the main goal given along with a bunch of sub goals that you should complete for maximum benefits.
Other than that, the game is pretty open world. You gather and craft, gather and craft, rinse and repeat. And trigger events to interact with the other characters in town.
If you want some CHALLENGE, there are some optional bosses that require alot of preparation to defeat in late and post game.
Here’s an example from Atelier Meruru on the PS3
Atelier Rorona Plus Description
The graphics, 3D models, battle system, and synthesis system were revamped to be based on Atelier Meruru Plus (it’s weird but the remakes were released in a different order, with the first game being the last to be remade in Japan)
What this means is those ugly models from the PS3 version are gone and you have a more intuitive crafting system.
This is the first game in the Arland trilogy. It’s connected to Totori and Meruru but not any of the other titles.
The plot of the game is your master’s alchemy workshop is being closed down by the kingdom so they’re giving you a last chance by testing what exactly “alchemy can do” through various requests for items and equipment.
Your master, Astrid, being the goddamn lazy woman she is, renames the shop to Atelier Rorona and dumps all the work on you.
