Koei Tecmo announced that the upcoming free-to-play Atelier game Atelier Releriana: Wasure Rareta Renkinjutsu to Goku Yoru no Kaihou-sha passed a pre-registrations milestone.
The game has achieved 300,000 pre-registrations so far, which is not bad at all, considering that for now it's only aimed at the Japanese market.
We also get two trailers, dedicated to two characters whom many Western fans of the series may not be familiar with, as they were the protagonists of titles never officially localized in English (albeit both characters appeared in the spin-off all-star title Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists, which did get localized)
The first is Judith "Judie" Volltone, the heroine of the first game of the Gramnad series, Atelier Judie: The Alchemist of Gramnad, released in 2002 for PS2 and in 2010 for PSP.
The second trailer is dedicated to Viorate "Vio" Platane, the heroine of Atelier Viorate: The Alchemist of Gramnad 2, which launched in 2003 for PS2 and 2011 for PSP.
Atelier Releriana: Wasure Rareta Renkinjutsu to Goku Yoru no Kaihou-sha, which translates as "Forgotten Alchemy and the Liberator of the Polar Night," was announced last month and is coming to iOS, Android, and PC via Steam, albeit the PC version will trail behind the mobile ones.
If you'd like to see more about the game, you can check out the first gameplay revealed last week.
At the moment, an English localization has not been announced by Koei Tecmo, so we'll have to wait and see whether we'll be able to enjoy Atelier Releriana in the West. Koei Tecmo hasn't been very active in localizing its mobile games, but you never know, the Steam version may help.
