Gust is re-releasing their lukewarmly received niche Japanese RPG Atelier Meruru: Apprentice of Arland for the PlayStation Vita. The port is called Atelier Meruru Plus: Apprentice of Arland, and it will contain new costumes, bosses and events compared to the PlayStation 3 version. It will also include the premium DLC content from the PS3 version. Japan will see a regular and limited edition version of the game. The limited box only appears to contain a single extra: a crystal paperweight. The regular version will cost 6,090 yen (about $70) while the premium box will go for 8,190 yen (about $95).
Atelier Meruru Plus will be available in Japan on March 20th. Considering North America still hasn’t seen the release of Atelier Totori Plus – which released in Japan in November of last year – I’d say it’ll be a while before we see it here in the west. Screenshots of the game can be viewed below.
