Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland Starts Its Journey Today

The latest entry in the long-running Atelier RPG series launches today. In something of a series first, Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland returns to an old setting and further explores its story. Lulua is the daughter of Rorona, a famous alchemist who once starred in her own Atelier game,which means she’s got some big shoes to fill. There’s no doubt she can do it though, as she’ll have a full party of friends to help her out.

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland brings back the old crafting system seen in Atelier Rorona, but with a few modern tweaks to keep it feeling fresh. It also adds a couple of new twists to the classic Atelier combat system. It’s not completely new, but it should be enough to differentiate it from past titles. After all, Gust has been keeping this series going for over twenty years now; they know what they need to do to keep fans coming back.

Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is available now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Check out our review for the most recent Atelier game to see if this one is worth diving into.
