I've bought the Arland trilogy on every system they've been released on so I'll gladly buy again on ps4 and switch....and the inevitable pc port

They probably will, KT brings pretty much everything to the west these days.

And I see there is no talk about that spinoff game at all: Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists. Nobody is interested?

If they release Arland trilogy on steam, it will be fourth time for Rorona, second for Totori and third for Meruru for me. Bring it on, KT!

Nelke's gameplay seems pretty different, I think we'll get it here.
It's a celebration game all about fanservice, I'd be surprised if it wasn't coming. Might be worth a tweet to KT though.

Nelke looks rough. Can't believe they've gone with NOCO for the art as well. It's killing me seeing these characters drawn in that awful style, lol.

Sophie is on sale can anyone sell me on it?
It's a good start for a new trilogy, it's not really pushing you in terms of difficulty, it's cute and well paced. Great OST as shared above.
Fun cast of characters as well.

But as usual, if you don't like the new Atelier games, you probably won't like it.

Never played a single atelier game I bought rorona for vita though last year in a sale but I'm not really feeling the vita right now.

Hey guys, I have a question. I played through Atelier Rorona Plus about six months ago (loved it), and while the trophy guides I think followed the original game when it came to following certain steps so that endings wouldn't take priority over each other, on the Plus version, you could hit all the flags and just select whatever ending you wanted.

I'm currently following a guide for Atelier Totori, but playing the Plus version. Is it the same case where you don't have to worry about hitting all the flags? And is it the case with the other Plus games, or is Rorona Plus unique in that respect?

I don't remember that I didn't need to worry in any of those games, but maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are saying, if you are playing with guides, you'll get all endings anyway

Some endings take priorities over others, so you don't want to hit certain "points of no return" because then you'd have to start a new game to get other endings.

In Rorona Plus, that wasn't the case. You could trigger all ending flags in one run, and then the game gave you a choice at the very end for the ending you wanted.

You're right that I shouldn't have to worry much due to the guide, but it's more for peace of mind than anything.

Is Lydie and Suelle good?

It's currently the cheapest its ever been at Best Buy. I'm kind of interested in getting that and Fate/Extella for 40 bucks total...

god I'm playing lydie and suelle and I was gonna buy ilmeria but they're charging 10 dollars for dlc characters which is insane, especially when characters used to be like 3 or 4

I can't but notice how... cheap Nelke looks. Like, literally mobile-game like, it honestly looks worse than the Arland stuff. Bare bone menus, bare bone animations. It looks like Alchemy is about as complicated as selecting from a menu?

As nice as it is, I fear that we'd not get the original english VA for a brand new title :(

Regardless, I'm not complaining too much. Arland is nice.

I wonder if we'll see any of the girls? Also funny to think considering what they did to Rorona in Meruru and their excuse for it >.>

That said, I hope for a good amount of returning characters alongside the new characters :D

Hopefully there's more Sterk and *sigh* Esty. Can uh, Threia somehow end up in this game too please? Cause I desperately want more Threia :(

so you mean there's a CHANCE for dusk trilogy to not end on a steaming pile of horse shit for a closure!
