CCC Says: "If you have never played the Atelier series of RPGs, let me fill you in. They are, essentially, equal parts traditional JRPGs and crafting systems. Yes, crafting items via alchemy is a huge part of these games, and you can spend hundreds, yes, literally hundreds of hours, tinkering away in your shop, making special potions and tiny hats. This cult-classic series of RPGs is a phenomenal time sink, rivaling Nippon Ichi’s own Disgaea series in both content and amount of time you can spend without actually progressing the story any. This uncanny ability to spend hour after hour absorbed in a game world without actually doing anything but watch numbers go up is what makes the Atelier series a perfect fit for a handheld system like the Vita. This brings us to Atelier Meruru Plus, a portable re-release of Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland for the PS3."
