Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland, the third title in NIS America and Gust's alchemic trilogy set in the realm of Arland, is scheduled to arrive in North America and Europe this coming May!
A new prologue trailer has also been released, and don't worry, it's largely spoiler-free, covering the gist of the first two games and eventually leading up to this new adventure. You'll play as a princess from the frontier kingdom of Arls in her quest to develop her land using the power of alchemy, which she picked up from the now renowned adventurer Totooria Helmold, the lead character in the previous game Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland.
The game features a new "Development" system that will allow Meruru to develop new areas and facilities within Arls, thereby unlocking new locations to explore. The world will change in appearance the more Arls is developed, as will the outcome of the story. Expect more item synthesis and familiar faces from the first two games to make a return in this new adventure.
