New Atelier title on the way for PS3

Gust have announced a new entry in the Atelier series of titles for the PlayStation 3 at the Dengeki Game Festival over in Japan.

Given the codename Project A14, the game will actually be an ‘all new’ entry in the popular Atelier series of RPGs and will launch on PS3 in Japan this June.

The game is ‘all new’ as it ditches everything from previous games – much as Final Fantasy traditionally does – and starts fresh with new characters, a new universe and even new gameplay systems.

There’ll be fresh blood on the development team too, including a new character designer who hasn’t worked on the series before. The mysterious silhouette before is to be the game’s lead. We can expect more information on the game to hit the Japanese press soon.

Thanks, Gematsu and Gekidami.
