Hey, how's about a new RPG for the PlayStation 3? Who's going to refuse? …if you start, we will hunt you down and do bad, bad, bad things to your pets.
Thanks to PS3Center, we have learned that Japanese gaming publication Dengeki has lifted the lid on a new exclusive JRPG entitled, Atelier Rorona . The hardcore fans will immediately recognize the first part of that name, as there have been multiple installments in Gust's franchise on the PS2 over the past several years. The last, Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm wasn't so great, but the games always had a lot of potential, and they certainly appeal to the appropriate niche audience. Come March 27, we'll learn more about Rorona , but we can pretty much guarantee that it'll be a turn-based RPG with plenty of anime influence and a very colorful palette. One could call it a throwback, but remember, this will be the first entry on the PlayStation 3, so we're expecting more prettiness and more depth. It's not the type of RPG that's good for everyone, but we're certain that there's a very interested minority out there who will probably pick this up on day one. As soon as the 27th rolls around, we'll try to latch onto those new details.
Atelier Rorona is also a very cool name to say. Kinda just rolls off the tongue. Try it; say it out loud. …see? Isn't that sweet?
