A piece of a Dengeki PlayStation interview with Atelier series lead Yoshito Okamura leaked out. Okamura confirmed the next Atelier title will not be set in Arland.
Not a big surprise since Atelier Meruru: The Alchemist of Arland 3 was the final game in the Arland trilogy. Okamura says, but that doesn’t not mean the door on Arland is closed forever and he will consider how to respond to expectations from fans.
The next Atelier games is in development and Okamura says before long they’ll be able to show it to the public.
As soon as everything else is announced, this will be edited to fit the news. Once the game is announced, the title will be edited accordingly.
