Original Gamer: "Being a Playstation 2 owner back in the early 2000’s meant that you got to experience some really fun JRPGs that didn’t have Final Fantasy in the name or were developed by Square. One of those series was the Atelier games. The Atelier franchise was a series of games created by Japanese developer Gust Corporation, starting back in 1997 on the first Playstation. The US didn’t see the series till 2005 with Atelier Iris for the PS2, and the games have been localized (for the most part) since then thanks to NIS America. This brings us to the latest game in the series, Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland for the PlayStation 3."
