Meruru and Keina make their return in Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland

Gust has released a new batch of screenshots of Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland in Japan. After having revealed Rorona and Totori previously, it was just a matter of time until they reveal Meruru, the protagonist of the third Arland title Atelier Meruru, and this batch confirmed exactly that.

This batch also confirmed the return of Meruru's childhood friend Keina Swaya, as well as a new male character who works as the head of the nursery school Eva Armster works at. Atelier Lulua also has a whole lot of events that tell stories of other characters, and they are unlocked accordingly based on the main story progression and their friendship levels with Lulua.

Gust has also recently published a new promotion trailer for Atelier Lulua in Japan, which you can watch right below.
