September is packed for Japanese game fans ><
It really is. Almost annoyingly so. I'm going to feel like the equivalent of a video game camel storing up gaming nourishment with all of my September purchases. Xenoblade, Disgaea 4, Tales of Xillia, Solotarobo (for the US, is also Sept. 27) and now Atelier Totori. Did I forget anything? My wallet is cringing already!

Hey. Hey! Get out my wishlist!

If it's anything like previous ones, yeah, I'll get it, but I wish they toned down the loli girls, and added a more in depth battle system. Whatever, it'll still be fun to play, and hopefully it'll come with an LE.

Based off the trailer, it does look that NISA is tossing in a limited edition box for this game like with their past PS3 releases of late, which includes an artbook and a soundtrack

Also, based off the videos of this game, the battle system does look more like a traditional RPG with MP and showing the turn order during battle. It really looks more advanced than the battle system in Rorona.

I thought that was 2012 for the west? Yeah, I'm buying Catherine, El Shaddai, Xenoblade, Disgaea 4, Atelier Totori and EDF in a very short timespan. I even thought about making a thread of the sudden flood of awesome japanese games.

Haven't played an Atelier game since the PS2 days...are they still good? I remember liking it until I lost my disk. Then for some reason my opinion of it went down.

I love Atelier Rorona's cheerful storyline, great cast of characters, incredible soundtrack, and addicting alchemy gameplay. In a hobby surrounded by emo, depressing characters, and testosterone up the wazoo, this game is a breath of fresh air.

This game, and any Atelier/Gust game is mine on day one :)

I think I missed out on Rorona...but didn't that game allow you to skip the battles and focus on the alchemy segments?
It didn't really allow you to fully skip battles, but you could absolutely focus on alchemy and the battle system was pretty basic. It was also possible to rather easily (if your alchemy lvl was high enough) craft bombs that take out almost every encounter in the game in 1 shot.

Atelier Rorona set a high bar for me, how does Totori compare in terms of gameplay, storyline, character dynamic, musical score, graphics, and replayability?

A little off topic, but the UDON Atelier Artbook is awesome.

Hmm I dunno that doesn't appeal to me much ^_^;
I'll try to rent Rorona though and see if I like it...

Rorona was really good and Totori is supposedly much better.

This*1000 :) You will realise the depth in the alchemy the moment you start crafting the best possible gear for your party. Merging/cancelling traits, controlling the quality of ingots/cloth to unlock the right bonuses, choosing the perfect traits to fit the 5 slot limit, etc...i had so much fun experimenting with the alchemy system.
