Gust's habit of remaking their relatively recently released Atelier games continues with the one Arland saga title yet to get the works now up next. New Atelier Rorona has been announced in the latest Japanese Dengeki PlayStation. However, unlike the other Atelier Totori Plus and Atelier Meruru Plus, New Atelier Rorona is being developed for both PS Vita and PlayStation 3. It's a full fledged remake and not just a port.
Expect a ton of extra content, including new events and an extended time system. That's on top of a,"Time Capsule, item cultivation, additional trophies, new battle characters, and additional costumes." It doesn't stop there though. New Atelier Rorona will feature upgraded character models which are more akin to the original illustrations too. I doubt that' it, either. Expect Gust to do the remake right.
No release date has been announced for New Atelier Rorona, and make sure to take note that the game is currently only announced for Japan. Hopefully it will see localization sometime in 2014?
