Atelier Meruru coming to North America and Europe Spring 2012

Atelier Totori may have hit western shores only recently, but NIS America is already gearing up for the release of the sequel.  Atelier Meruru, the third in the Arland series will be coming to this side of the Pacific in a much shorter timeframe compared to its predecessors.

The game is said to introduce an element of city building to the series alongside the already established item synthesis system the Atelier games are known for.  This will have an effect on the story and should be a nice addition for long-time fans.

We'll keep you updated as more info becomes available.
