While people often talk about the usual annual franchises such as Call of Duty or Assassin’s Creed, they never talk about the Atelier series. It’s true: since 2010, Gust has been putting these games out consistently every year. This series may not be well known but it has a strong and loyal following who can’t get enough of it.
Fans of this series are no doubt happy that this year they’ve gotten two games. Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky was released a few months back (check out my review) and now we see the release of Atelier Rorona Plus: Alchemists of Arland. Unlike Escha & Logy, which was a brand new entry in the series, Rorona is actually a remake (as if the Plus didn’t give that away). Unlike a lot of other remakes, which tend to just receive a new coat of paint, this one has been almost entirely overhauled.
