Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland on Nintendo 3DS is a chibi remake of the game, which originally came out on PlayStation 3 (then PlayStation Vita). It does includes some exclusive content, like Atelier Astrid (in which players will be able to discover the youth of Astrid Zexis and Sterkenburg Cranac).
The game came out yesterday in Japan, and to celebrate this launch, Mel Kishida (the chara-designer and illustrator) made a special illustration of Rorolina Frixel:
According to retail sources, almost 40% of all units sent to retailers sold during the first day (which is neither good nor bad). We’ll get the first official sales numbers for Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland on Wednesday afternoon, when Media Create reveals its data for Week 23!
In the mean time, here’s some additional screenshots for the game:
