Atelier Rorona May Hit North America Sooner Than You Think

Siliconera recently chatted with NIS America about their upcoming RPG Trinity Universe (part 1 | part 2 – both interesting reads if you enjoy NIS-published titles). While the chat was supposed to stay on topic, one question that also piqued my interest was included, and it was about Atelier Rorona. For those of you who enjoy the Atelier series, myself included, you’ll be happy to know a localization is in the works. While no solid date was given, a time frame was.

NISA Localization Editor Nick Doerr had this to say about the impending release of Atelier Rorona in North America:

“I can provide a general window, but it’s not one of my projects so I can’t say anything too definite. I would expect it this Fall.”

There you have it, folks. If you’re like me and have been keeping an eye on the latest Atelier titles, you now have something good to look forward to later this year! Oh, and just for those who don’t know, this was a PS3 exclusive in Japan and will likely remain that way, but you never know.
