A while back we announced that Japan was receiving a special Deluxe edition of the Arland Trilogy: Atelier Rorona Plus, Atelier Totori Plus and Atelier Meruru Plus, remastered with all DLC included. Now in the wake of the delay for Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists, KOEI Tecmo have announced that this very Deluxe Arland Trilogy will be releasing to the West on December 4th both in Europe and the Americas.
The trilogy will be a digital only release for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
It has also been confirmed that you will be able to purchase the games individually or all together in one bundled pack. Pricing and such will be revealed closer to it’s release date.
What are your thoughts on this? Will you pick up any of the trio of Arland? Let us know in those comments!
We have been treated to a lot of Gust’s famed Atelier Series JRPGs over the years, and now KOEI Tecmo have confirmed (well earlier in the month, sue us) that the first three HD games will be making their way to both the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch this September – however only in Japan currently.
This means that New Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori Plus and Atelier Meruru Plus will be complete on current gen systems (the ones Japan care about anyway), with being able to purchase the games separately or in a single trilogy bundle. The games will include all their “New” and “Plus” content respectively and all prior DLC released will be in as well at no extra cost.
But what does this mean for us Westerners? Going by how successful the Atelier Series is over here, it will likely see the light of day sometime in the new year, especially as we’ve received two Atelier games this year alone (the second arriving this Winter).
You can check out the Japanese trailer below for the trilogy set.
