Over time, characters evolve. They change! But the way the characters in PS3 game Atelier Rorona have changed is something to behold.

Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland was originally released on the PlayStation 3 in 2009. Now, the game's developer is releasing a "new" remake version, revamping the gameplay and characters.

Some of the changes look like tweaks (the remake version is on the right).


Other changes look totally different—like, surprisingly so.

The new Atelier Rorona will be out this November in Japan on the PS3 and PS Vita. No word yet about an international release.
