Atelier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland is headed to the U.S. and Europe in spring 2012. Which is fantastic because it will close out the Arland trilogy of Atelier games. The Atelier games have always been entertaing and have always done something different in each game so I can not wait for the release.
Meruru, the apprentice of Totori from Atelier Totori, is the star this time around. Atelier Meruru takes place in the country of Arls. One of the new features of Atelier Meruru is a world building system, which we mentioned in our coverage of the Japanese version of the game. The screenshots above depict how you can erect a fortress over a piece of land. The screen below is a view of how you’ll construct new buildings, using points built up by completing quests. Below we have a ton of screenshots
