I’m not going to lie, the visual style and art of a game is one of the huge draws for me. Considering the fact that I love anime/manga-style art and Japanese games in general, this artwork for Atelier Meruru that showed up on Dengeki Online pretty much takes the cake. It describes – in a few simple pieces – what the game is all about.
The online magazine has more shots from the inside of their latest print issue, but these are my two favorite spreads. I especially like the one in the above shot with the castle in the background. And, after the break, notice the three girls from the last three Atelier games – Rorona, Totori and Meruru. To check out more, head on over to Dengeki.
