A batch of new screenshots was released for 2012’s Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland following news of its North American today, so I’ll just throw some of them up here for you to enjoy.

This entry in the Atelier franchise, a sequel to Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, revolves around Princess Meruru and her adventures as an apprentice alchemist. A few series mainstays will make an appearance and a new development system will allow players to build new facilities and access different areas.

The old Time Card turn system and synthesis make a return  in this PlayStation 3 exclusive title. As is the norm for the franchise, the screenshots after the jump contain girls in skimpy outfits aplenty. Not that that’s why you you play Atelier games, right?
