  • “New chapters featuring Totori and Meruru who return from the previous Arland trilogies “Atelier Meruru Plus” and “Atelier Totori Plus”, brimming with new content and illustrations”
  • “Additional Content, including playable characters, maps, bosses, costumes and more”
  • “Improved Synthesis system and new Assignment system”
  • “Expanded Item Crafting”
  • “New battle system with advanced battle features and skill execution between characters
  • New Time Capsule system allows players to bury items in Atelier Rorona and retrieve them in Atelier Meruru Plus, and Atelier Totori Plus”
  • “Over 30 different Endings: Interactions with character and decisions made to complete missions with affect the ending offering extremely high replay value”
  • “Data saving and sharing between PlayStation®3 and PS®Vita versions”

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
