Niche game publisher NIS America have announced that Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland, the long awaited sequel to Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, will be coming to North America and Europe in Spring 2012.
This time the tale follows young Meruru, a princess from the humble kingdom of Arls. Having been acquainted with alchemy from Arland's renowned adventurer Totori Helmold, Meruru is looking to use her new found skills to further developer her little kingdom.
NIS America promises both new and familiar faces from the previous games, as well as a new "Development" system where players can build new facilities and access new areas to explore. The classic Time Card turn-based system is back and, of course, item synthesis and the ever adorable Homs.
That's Spring 2012 and like its predecessors, exclusive for the PS3.
