RPGFan writes: "Ever since Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana was localized in 2005, Gust's alchemy-themed RPGs have garnered a loyal following in the US. We've seen two Atelier Iris sequels, two Ar tonelico games, Mana Khemia, and there are more coming in the future. If there is one trait these games have in spades, it is charm, which is why import fans enjoyed the series well before Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana. DS owners can now join in on the alchemy action with Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island. Atelier Annie is like earlier Atelier titles such as Atelier Marie, in that it focuses less on battles and an epic, world-spanning plot, and more on character interactions, alchemy, world building, and facility management. If I had to sum up Atelier Annie in two words, those words would be charming and fun."
