Evil Bunny and Cute Kitty Cat Appear in Atelier Meruru Screens

May 30, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

It was only a couple of months ago when the latest in the line of Alchemist of Arland games was announced. Titled Atelier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland 3, the game is scheduled to release next month in Japan, and although there are no plans to release the game outside of its home country, many of the previous titles have released internationally. The game carries some of the oldschool JRPG tones we saw on the original PlayStation, which is something many role-playing fans have been dying for all generation long.

See for yourself in the many screenshots below:

There’s definitely a “cutesy” vibe going on here, which reminds me of Eternal Sonata. There’s little known about the game other than that it centers around a princess which goes by the name of Meruru, hence the game title. Some typical bourgeois stuff goes down, rich people get upset, and you have yourself a reason for guys in twill armor to take up arms and start attacking medieval knights. Oh, and there are kitty cats and bunnies too. This is one of those games that either makes you wish you knew how to read Japanese, or makes you glad you already know how.

We also have a few trailers if you’d like to see these cute asian girls in motion.
