Patrick Gann writes "Looking ahead, Atelier Totori is already out in Japan. it is the second "Alchemist of Arland" title, it's another PS3 exclusive, and in it, you play as Rorona's apprentice. Now Rorona is a master alchemist, and the new girl, Totori, will learn from her! The strange blend of old Atelier style and new Atelier gameplay concepts works fairly well, but where will it go in the next game? I'm cautiously optimistic. If nothing else, Atelier Rorona is a unique departure/arrival point for the series' future. If you have a PS3, I'd recommend that you give it the old college try. See if you, too, can make it through all three years!"
