Following a teaser earlier today, leaks from the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveal Atelier Rurua: The Alchemist of Arland 4 for PlayStation 4 and Switch. It will launch in 2019 in Japan for 7,800 yen. A 10,800 yen limited edition will also be available. Pre-orders will open on October 25 in Japan. Character designs are by Mel Kishida.
The protagonist is Elmeluria Frixell, the daughter of Ateler Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland protagonist Rorona. Her voice actor is currently unannounced. She has long hair adorned with a heart symbol. Her clothes appear to be hand-me-downs from Rorona. She is a studious girl and reckless type who, studying under her master to become an alchemist like her mother, picks up a certain book.
Elmeluria’s childhood friend is Eva Armster. Her voice actor is also unannounced. She is a proper girl who works at a nursery school. While she has a quiet personality, she is a tough fighter in battle, seemingly using a bazooka or Gatling gun.
The game uses the synthesis, exploration, and battle elements of the Arland series as its base. New systems based on elements that gained popularity through the Mysterious sub-series of Atelier games will also appear. Synthesis will be both classic and new.
The world features an even bigger Arland Republic where Arls has been annexed. It also seems that Rorona is somewhere far away from here.
