NIS America have announced that their upcoming JRPG Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland has regrettably been delayed for a week, at least in North America.
The game will now release on May 29 in North America. NIS America noted that this was caused due to a delay in the manufacturing process. Europe remains unaffected, and will see the game release on schedule.
Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland is the sequel to Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, and is the third game in the Arland series of Atelier games.
Fans can expect both new and familiar faces, and it features several new mechanics like the "Development" system that allows lead character Meruru to further develop her kingdom. It also features a revamped battle system which introduces more strategy to combat encounters.
