When returning to a game for a second playthrough, it’s always incredibly satisfying when you manage to complete an objective well ahead of “schedule”.
Despite only certain things carrying over to a New Game Plus run in the various incarnations of Atelier Rorona, you can still bash out a lot of the early game content very easily, leaving you with plenty of time to make money, grind for experience, build up your relationship values and just generally have a good time in this pastel-coloured world.
Hit the jump to see just how quickly I managed to satisfy the second assignment…
Eight minutes! Not bad going. This was actually quicker than the first assignment, I think, and once we’ve got things like the Wholesale system unlocked (which you achieve by building up your friendship values with the shopkeepers) it should be no sweat to get the assignments out of the way, which frees up time for events and preparation for various endings.
For today’s episode, we hammer out that assignment and then spend a bit of time mining, crafting and, of course, indulging in a bit of good old-fashioned Puni brutality. It’s an Arland tradition!
