Atelier Rorona: New Title In Atelier Series Teased For PS3 [PS3 Hyper]


    Oh hell yeah! I've been a big fan of Atelier series. I'm definitely looking forward to this installment.

    "Time to be a 14 years old boy trying to save the world while surrounded by underaged girls!"
    Actually, that's not a very accurate description for Atelier. In the last few, your party was composed of a girl who's quite significantly older than the hero, a very obnoxious elf, and old man who's build like a tank (and plays like one).
    Atelier series is old school in philosophy. You won't see the usual jRPG fanfare here. However, expect relatively light story full of crappy humor: The game always packs plenty of that.
