New Atelier Meruru Plus Screenshots Introduce Combat, New Events and New Old Characters

I’m quite sure I’m not the only one that feels that the lovely illustrated art style of the Atelier series really fits the PS Vita. To further prove me right Gust released today a bunch of new screeshots of Atelier Meruru Plus, that will be released on Sony’s portable (in Japan) on March the 20th.

The pics show the combat system, the three characters that were released as DLC on PS3 (Rufus, Hannah and Pamela) and that will come bundled in the PS Vita version, together with the Makina hunting area, a new costume for Meruru, and something quite interesting: Not only there’ll be a Totori costume for Meruru available to those that cleared Atelier Totori plus (we already knew about that), but the game will feature ¬†events starring Totori herself, and the other prominent Atelier alchemist, Rorona.

While we wait for news on a very possible localization, you can check out the screenshots below.
