NIS America and Koei Tecmo have announced that all three games that make up the Arland series in the Atelier franchise (Rorona, Totori, and Meruru) will be sold in a compilation — all in one disc, in Europe. The exact release date is March 6th, and it will be sold at the cost of the usual HD collections we see these days. One thing to note is that the games seem to be the original PS3 versions, hence why its being sold on the PS3 only. So no plus versions of either Totori and Meruru, nor Shin Rorona. That is most likely why even the links that were used for the compilation go to the official websites of the original versions of these games, including the original box arts as well.
