Cover Game Articles

Atelier Arland: Introduction and History - Atelier is one of the more long-running, prolific series in the canon of Japanese gaming. First launching in 1997, the franchise has seen 19 mainline releases since its inception (with a 20th on the way at the time of writing), plus a variety of spin-offs, side stories, ports, expanded adaptations and guest appearances from its … Continue reading Atelier Arland: Introduction and History
Atelier Rorona: Arland’s New Beginning - As we’ve previously explored, the Atelier series is no stranger to rereleases and remakes — and at the time of writing, Arland trilogy debut Atelier Rorona has had more than most. Initially releasing in Japan in 2009 as Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland before being localised by NIS America for North America, Europe and Australasia in … Continue reading Atelier Rorona: Arland’s New Beginning
Atelier Totori: Arland’s Middle Child - Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, the second installment in Atelier’s Arland trilogy, is in that unenviable position that all “middle children” end up in — perhaps more so than most. Originally offering considerable improvements over Atelier Rorona’s first incarnation — particularly in the graphical and mechanical departments — Gust’s tendency to put out “Plus” versions … Continue reading Atelier Totori: Arland’s Middle Child
Atelier Meruru: Arland Comes Together - Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland, the thirteenth mainline Atelier game and the third in the Arland series, first released in 2011. It is a longstanding favourite of many enthusiasts of the series with good reason, and absolutely a suitable high point for the whole trilogy to wrap up on… that is, until Atelier Lulua comes along … Continue reading Atelier Meruru: Arland Comes Together

Other Articles about Atelier Arland Trilogy

New Game Plus: Night’s Domain - How tough is our girl Rorona? Only tough enough to fell both a dragon and a demon in a single expedition, that’s how tough! In this week’s installment of our New Game Plus run through Atelier Rorona DX, we find ourselves exploring Night’s Domain, a dungeon at the northernmost tip of Arland that is somewhat… mysterious and … Continue reading New Game Plus: Night’s Domain
New Game Plus: King and Knight - We’re into the third and final year of Rorona’s assignments in our New Game Plus run through Atelier Rorona DX, and some interesting mysteries are starting to be revealed about a bunch of characters. I’m really enjoying this run, as I’m seeing some scenes I’ve never seen before; the additional “free” time I have available … Continue reading New Game Plus: King and Knight
New Game Plus: Closing Out Year 2 - It’s time to wrap up the second year of Rorona’s adventures with the final preparations for the next Annual Festival! Of course, New Game Plus Rorona got all the boring stuff done absolutely ages ago, vastly ahead of schedule as usual, so instead we take some time to continue exploring the Dark Woods and see … Continue reading New Game Plus: Closing Out Year 2
New Game Plus: Deep Water and Dark Forests - It’s time to check in on Rorona again! This time around, she has her hands not-so-full with preparing for the second Annual Festival of the game. As always, the head start that the New Game Plus bonuses afforded us means we can get the assignment out of the way very quickly, which leaves plenty of … Continue reading New Game Plus: Deep Water and Dark Forests
New Game Plus: End of Summer - Summer’s drawing to a close in Arland just as it’s starting to get nice and warm for springtime here in the UK. Today our brave little alchemist takes on her toughest challenge yet: dealing with a comic misunderstanding involving a gentleman friend and her parents! Oh no! She also does a bit of alchemy and … Continue reading New Game Plus: End of Summer
New Game Plus: Beat the Heat - It’s summer! At least it is in Arland. You know what that means: alchemical solutions to beat the heat! Of course, the astute among you will have already noticed that… oh, let’s leave that as a surprise, shall we? Today’s New Game Plus run continues with more alchemy, more one-hit kills, some boobs on proud … Continue reading New Game Plus: Beat the Heat
New Game Plus: Mel Kishida Loves Stinky Feet - As with Wednesday’s Warriors Wednesday video, I thought I’d make an effort to drop in some vaguely interesting factoids into my video intros. As such, today you will learn that yes, indeed, Atelier Arland character designer Mel Kishida is indeed into stinky feet. But how is this relevant? Umm… Well… Oh, just watch it, will you? (And … Continue reading New Game Plus: Mel Kishida Loves Stinky Feet
New Game Plus: Vultures-B-Gone - Our “second playthrough” adventures in the world of Atelier Rorona DX continue, this time with an important pest control job! It seems the Nearby Forest has been infested with vultures, and Rorona is clearly the right person to get rid of them. At least it’s a distraction from the myriad neuroses and mental scars Astrid … Continue reading New Game Plus: Vultures-B-Gone
New Game Plus: Ghosts Don’t Have Feet - It’s time for our weekly visit to the kingdom of Arland, as our New Game Plus runthrough of Atelier Rorona DX on Nintendo Switch continues! We’re well into the game’s second year now, and all sorts of interesting things are happening. Rorona is still devastatingly overpowered, however; can no-one provide her with a decent fight? … Continue reading New Game Plus: Ghosts Don’t Have Feet
New Game Plus: Replicating Ancient Tool - Get out your ancient tool, boys and girls, because Rorolina Frixell is most certainly going to replicate it good and proper! Yes, in today’s episode of New Game Plus, in which we are presently enjoying a second playthrough of Atelier Rorona DX on Nintendo Switch, we take on the poor overworked girl’s third assignment, which is somewhat … Continue reading New Game Plus: Replicating Ancient Tool
Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead” - It seems that every time we get a new Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy or Persona release, we have the same old “we’re having a JRPG renaissance!” discussion. Well, dear reader, with my coverage of Death End Re;Quest on the horizon at the time of writing and plenty more RPGs in our shared futures, I’m here … Continue reading Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead”
New Game Plus: Time On Our Hands - Whew! Even with the chaotic week I’ve had (including a brief period of complete computer failure last weekend) I managed to get all my usual videos out on time. Go me. As always (well, usually, anyway), Friday plays host to New Game Plus, our weekly exploration of post-game content and New Game Plus modes. Currently, … Continue reading New Game Plus: Time On Our Hands
New Game Plus: Creating Explosives - 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, … Continue reading New Game Plus: Creating Explosives
New Game Plus: Furaipan Da Yo - Our (re)adventures in Atelier Rorona DX continue! Now we’ve finished the first assignment in this New Game Plus run, what’s next? Well, there are plenty of options. Complete some quests, go out exploring, craft some items, make some materials and turn them into weapons and armour, fill out a bingo card, buy some beehives… Hit … Continue reading New Game Plus: Furaipan Da Yo
New Game Plus: Producing Sundries - It’s time for a new series of New Game Plus, in which I take a game I’ve already beaten and explore its postgame content and/or New Game Plus modes. With the Atelier Arland Cover Game feature now done and dusted, that would seem like an ideal time to immediately revisit those games and see what happens on … Continue reading New Game Plus: Producing Sundries
Waifu Wednesday: Mimi Houllier von Schwarzlang - Continuing Atelier’s proud tradition of having a number of characters with delightfully flamboyant, somewhat Germanic names, I give to you Mimi Houllier von Schwarzlang. First introduced in Atelier Totori and subsequently explored further in Atelier Meruru, Mimi is a delightful character to be around. She’s also a great example of how the Arland trilogy as a whole makes … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Mimi Houllier von Schwarzlang
Waifu Wednesday: Pamela Ibis - One of the earliest “non-human” character types I feel like I developed a bit of a “thing” for was the humble ghost. Aside from occasional arguments with my wife over whether or not they are technically “undead” (they absolutely are), I’ve always found the concept of life beyond death fascinating for a variety of reasons. … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Pamela Ibis
Waifu Wednesday: Esty - There’s a lot of hoo-hah about “representation” in games right now from various sources, tending to lead to arguments between people who don’t think it matters and people who think it is more important than absolutely anything in the whole wide world. For the most part, I tend to stay out of these discussions because … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Esty
The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 16 – Welcome to 2019! - Hello! Welcome back to the first episode of The MoeGamer Podcast for 2019, featuring my good self and my good friend Chris Caskie of MrGilderPixels. The MoeGamer Podcast is available in several places. You can subscribe to my channel on YouTube to stay up to date with both the video versions of the podcast and my weekly videos; … Continue reading The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 16 – Welcome to 2019!
Waifu Wednesday: Cordelia von Feuerbach - We’ll be discussing the titular protagonists of the Atelier Arland trilogy in detail throughout the main Cover Game feature, so I wanted to give a bit of love to some of the secondary characters. And what better place to begin than with the rather grandiosely named Cordelia von Feuerbach: lover of frilly yet practical dresses, … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Cordelia von Feuerbach
Atelier Rorona Plus: The Nicest Game You’ll Play This Summer - Ponder, if you will, the most common criticisms of the video games medium as a whole. The things that make people roll their eyes and exasperatedly say “videogames” (with no space); the things that inspire endless op-eds by well-known games journalists that ask that eternal question: why aren’t things any better? Games, these critics say, are worryingly homogeneous; … Continue reading Atelier Rorona Plus: The Nicest Game You’ll Play This Summer
