Atelier Rorona screenshots show cel shaded graphics

famitsu.com: The studio's latest title on Playstation 3 has evolved signifigantly.

Synthesizing multiple items, creating new items, all the elemnts of the old games retun in this next generation title. The novice alchemist Rorona's adventure exploring fields to collect materials sees the series reborn in 3d. For the first time in the series the game will feature full voice acting. (Atelier Rorona: Alchemist of Arland , PS3)

I honestly expected better graphics.The sprite-based animations are outdated but these cel-shading graphics have no ambition

Your mom has no ambition.
That's how you came into the world.

Stop being such a troll and wait for more information before passing judgment. And do a little research/ show some insight on the series. These games were never about flashy graphics (though they have AWESOME special effects). They are about solid, engaging, quirky game-play.

I'm sure that Atelier Rorona will have that in spades.

P.S. Look at some of the combat animations, the engine looks really well done.

Looks great, but the environments look like crap. Still, this is a huge leap compared to Disgaea 3. I really hope this gets an American release. Or at least a European release so I could import it.

I knew that this was going to be a "looker".
And if they keep the addictive qualities of the series and mix in some flashy combat, this will be an EPIC JRPG.

This should really be the year that I finish learning how to read kanji; I'm sick of waiting for NA releases.

Regarding the "graphical fidelity", look closer at the engine. The battle animations are where it's at.





The character models have a clean Naruto: NS look to them. I like it. And the game-play will be extensive and lengthy, which is what people play the series for.

The graphics are looking really good! ^_^

Hopefully the special effects cast light on the character models like in Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm.

Why disagree with Kamikaze? He only said that the environments look crap, and I agree. Character models, the HUD and battle effects all look great though. I want more information and a US/European release.

The character models are the best cel-shaded ones yet. The detail is better than in Eternal Sonata and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm, and it doesn't have any aliasing issues at all.

well hope released it in America looking at image, feel like looking at dragonquest 8 PS2 game, but this game has slighty better graphics

It reminds me of Dark Cloud 2

This is a pleasant surprise.
I was kind of expecting more 2D sprite based graphics. This is now officially on my radar =)

Somehow, the environments graphics remain me Radiata Stories but this one look more better. I'm so sure that NISA its localize it over the states by the end or earlier next year ^^

When I first heard about this title I thought they were gonna make it like Disgea 3 with the PS1 type graphics but this game looks great.

I just hope they bring it over to other regions soon.

Definitely first day buy from me.

Very nice
Lets hope there's an english version for this game, don't care if its for N.A, EU or Asia

God, they used all the available polygons on characters. I can't see one angle where it shouldn't be. Even Eternal Sonata didn't manage that. Environments look like they jumped out of PS2 games.
Giriath  +   2003d ago
Why do these two characters look like teens in the dialogue 2D scenes and little loli kids in 3D gameplay? Maybe they're disguising as kids? I'm not familiar with the franchise so don't kill me if I'm stating the obvious. :(
