Ok some fans of the series already now the english localization just came out by yesterday and i am fortunate enough to get the premium box.
This blog is well.. sort of commenting a little bit about the game and it’s box packaging etc.
1. The package shipment – (hehe no pictures for this)
I know it sounded weird but i do sometimes mind at these. Rosenqueen apparently have their shipment slightly being expensive due that they were shipping it in USPS priority.
The fact that i review it today is well I being late and all.In addition they came bubble wrapped nicely and well the goods arrived in a very good condition. Therefore KUDOS for Rosenqueen with their shipment concerns ^.^)b
2. The Box –
Ahem.. i am not a very good camera taker so my apologies on the flash there. Anyways…..
The premium box packaging strangely are in Japanese, i dont know why but they did the same exact thing to the Mana Khemia premium box too. But i think it’s really neatly done and i liked it.
The funny thing is… on the top of the back right corner it says the following “For sale and use in Japan only. Commercial use, unauthorized copy and rental prohibited” and… well… you know what i mean
3. Swags & Bonus –
These are how the 4 sides of the box looked like. It looks pretty fun isnt it?
and this is how the figurine looked like.
I cant get myself to open the bag but those figurine would looked great on the display case.
4. The game –
well despite that the box is in Japanese they do include the English game (dont worry it’s not Japanese) inside
I would like to thank NISA for considering keeping the original Japanese dub. Other than this i think are Atlus’ Super Robot Taisen OG Saga – Endless Frontier for DS (long title yes? ~.~) and the Muramasa for Wii.
As a note, i personally prefer the game at its original dub. NISA mentioned that due to the space they are unable to add the english track. I think since Atelier series has niche fans, I am sure most of them are happy with this decision.
This game has many different characters in it. Which means there’ll be tons of interactions and conversations with different people. NISA did a good job on introducing the game characters on their official website, feel free to check their site for more information. They also have wallpaper downloads too.
I cant give any grades as i have not play much into it yet, but pretty much its a sim-rpg (i suppose thats how you call it). I daresay it feels like Rune Factory, only this is the Atelier series.
I am glad that the pre-order came in at the good time. I am also glad NISA didnt disappointed their fans too (and of course I am included). Since their fault in Ar Tonelico 2, I was having second thoughts on getting this game.
But this time I am glad and wasn’t disappointed at all and I hope that those who have supported NISA by purchasing this game feel the same way too. And the next big step will be “Ar Tonelico 3” that the news was released recently and ready to be released in PS3 next year in Japan
Random Stuff –
Now a random related Japanese word:
セラ島の連金術士 – Sera Tou no Ren Kin Jutsu Shi, thats the subtitle of this game in the Japanese cover. and its pretty much meant The Alchemist of Sera Island ^^ (I wonder why NISA made it plural)
Well then for those who have bought this Welcome to the Sera Island, and for those who would enjoy casual, fun and light rpg might want to consider this game as an option.
