PS3 Alchemy Game Out This Summer

As hinted at earlier, Alchemist role-playing series Atelier is making the leap to the PS3. The latest entry, Atelier Rorona, will be released in Japan on June 25.

The game will feature full voice — a first for the series — and 3D graphics. The artist is Meru Kishida.

The game's plot follows a novice 14-year-old frilly-lace-wearing alchemist named Rorona. In the game, it's possible to create approximately a hundred items.

The Japanese franchise commenced in 1997 with PlayStation title Atelier Marie ~The Alchemist of Salburg~. The games, best known for their alchemy mechanics, have largely appeared on the PS platform with a few games showing up on other systems like the Dreamcast, the Game Boy Advance and the Nintendo DS.
