Atelier Meruru Trailer: Bringing Alchemy and Pinwheels Together At Last

on March 24, 2012 2:00 PM

If you’re an anime or JRPG enthusiast with a penchant for philosophical pseudoscience, NIS studios has got your back. Aside from the glowing niche trinity mentioned above, the trailer has got swords being flung at faeries, weird little sprite folk dressed like French maids hurling grenades at a dragon (possibly the weirdest sentence I’ve yet written about a video game), and all the unexplained flashing colors and floating rose petals you could hope for.

The trailer showcases Atelier Meruru’s battle system and world map, and also gives you a glimpse of some menu screens and alchemical reactions — though, taken out of the context of actually playing the game, it is hard to say exactly what is going on in the latter processes. In any case, check out the trailer after the break!

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
