One of the great things about the Atelier franchise as a whole, especially the last three games based around Arland, is the art. The gameplay itself may be all over the place, the story pacing may be slower than some would like and the characters may be all lovey-dovey and cutesy, but one thing you can’t deny is that these games have great art.
There has already been an art book published that focuses on the franchise as a whole, up to and including Atelier Rorona (which you can still pick up here in English if you so desire), but now there’s a new one set to be released that focuses specifically on the Arland series of games. These three games are a trilogy of sorts – Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru. This book is 256 pages of art from those three titles and releases in less than a month, on October 29.
