Atelier Meruru Now Has Pretty Pictures

The other day we brought you a bit of information on the new title in the Atelier series from Gust, Atelier Meruru: Alchemist of Arland 3. Today, we have our first solid look at the title and the main character. There are some shots from dialog scenes, some alchemy shots and some battle shots here. I’m a big fan of Meruru’s design, I think her outfit is much better than the questionable ones on both Rorona and Totori. Some shots of her, including the one above, even remind me a tad bit of the aesthetic of Tales of Xillia, if I may be so bold.

You’ll also notice one of the new features of this title is shown off – the ability to change the world around you. In one shot Meruru is standing in front of a small abode, in the next shot it has escalated into a huge castle. Atelier Meruru is due out in Japan in the Summer and it is indeed a PS3-only title, so importing shouldn’t be an issue for those of you so inclined. Hit the break for the goods.
