Atelier developer wants to know what you want to see.


Gust, developer of the Atelier series and the upcoming Nights of Azure, is considering future collaboration titles. A poll posted on its official Facebook page is askign what anime collaboration you would like to see in a future Gust title.

Options include One Piece, One Punch Man, Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail, Naruto, and Hunter x Hunter, but there’s also an “other” option if your choice isn’t listed.

This would be new for Gust, as everything they’ve ever put out since their establishment in 1993 has been their own IP.

Thanks, Koei Tecmo Europe.

    Sounds more like they’re just asking what you’d like to see something from, as opposed to a whole game based on that. Similar to the way Monster Hunter has armors from all kind of franchises.

    • Sal Romano

      Maybe. Though when it’s written as “Gust studio is considering future collaboration titles,” it kind of makes it sound like the whole title is a collaboration.

  • Warboss Aohd

    I encourage all of you to click other and pick the darkest, yet best written series to throw them off (Like Berserk, Parasyte, etc.) Or just something outside of Gust’s Comfort Zone in general.

    Just to see their reaction.

  • Zackasaur

    Collaborations are all the rage in Japan, these days~

    • Budgiecat

      when have they never been? We’ve had anime games since the dawn of JPN home consoles

      • Zackasaur

        I’m aware. But we’re seeing a surge in collaborative emphasis in places where it was formerly uncommon, both in terms of new companies getting involved and in terms of more dev teams partnering up.

        • Budgiecat

          no we’re not. You just havent been following things

          • Zackasaur

            Wrong. Apparently you haven’t.

            • Budgiecat

              apparently I have. In fact everyone knows I do here lol.

              • Zackasaur


                It’s not my job to cure someone’s willful ignorance of industry trends. I know how this goes. I’m out.

                • Budgiecat

                  Thats fine but if I really cared, I could give you a laundry list of co-developed collaborations of games just from the PS2 era alone that destroys your entire argument. Then I could add in PS1 but that’ be overkill :p

  • articuzwolf

    That’s kinda too broad…what kind of collaboration? I can’t see Atelier with One Piece skin or any other Shounen manga in this case. Maybe Precure will win since the theme ‘kinda’ fit?

    • Sorata

      Ikr. Plus even if they do a crossover with characters like those it would kill the game as the characters are even more Overpowered than the one given. So there’s no way I want to see things like One Punch Man and Fairy Tail and One Piece and Naruto and Bleach inside as it is overpowered. Well if they do Negima than they gonna just need to remove Negi as he is overpowered and only put in the Ala Alba Girls.

      • articuzwolf

        It’s a game, they can always tweak the stats to balance things out.

  • Sieghardt

    Voted for Fairy Tail, Dog Days & Monster Musume
    but hinestly I’d prefer they worked on their own stuff. I’d love to see more new IP like Nights of Azure and returns to some old ones like Mana Khemia

    • aquagon

      Mana Khemia is still Atelier.

  • Sunny11

    Selected Fairy Tail

  • SirRichard

    Panty & Stocking, make it happen.

    More seriously, some of those deviate from their usual style by quite a bit. Wonder what the scope of such ollabs would be, full games? Perhaps it’s an initiative from Tecmo Koei, given their Titan game?

  • Uncle Stoopnixie

    Man nothing in there fit theyr style.

    I guess the least crappy IP of the bunch is One Punch Man, maybe Fairy Tail.

    If i had to choose an IP for them i would go with Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha, i would love a JRPG with Nanoha.

    • DizzyGear

      The only IP i can think of that has decent synergy with what they do (Going by their Surge concerto titles) is Pandora in the Crimson Shell.

      Maybe BLAME as well but i dont think many people remember that title.

  • Zepht

    Yu Yu Hakusho, Sailor Moon and Magic Knight Rayearth =)

  • Mirikku

    I’m sure there’s already lots of votes for Boku no Pico.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Monster Farm/Rancher!!!!

  • Victor Black
    • Budgiecat

      thats sounds doable

    • Hime☆Sama★

      Yes! Seriously I’d buy that day 1!

    • Crimrui

      Damn, thanks for reminding me. I would totally go for that. ˇˇ

  • Raphael Cuyugan

    Physical Vita games for the West!

  • Sorata

    well Negima (the girls from Ala Alba) (Negi is not added since he is Overpowered) would be the best since it fits it the most or Gakusen Toshi Asterisk or Sword Art Online. Naruto, One Piece, One Punch Man, Fairy Tail totally doesn’t fit it as they are Overpowered characters.

  • Sorata

    Try Negima since it hasn’t gotten a decent game at all after the ps2 versions the rest weren’t really that fantastic and there’s so much content to use.

    For collaboration just add the girls from Ala Alba.

  • someguy

    Went with Madoka. It could kinda fit their style, it’s popular…

    • dark-kyon


    • renji00

      Thanks for the reminder.

    • Marks

      Yup, first anime I thought of. I think it would work well.

  • I Don’t Care About Your Waifu

    JoJo, Berserk

    • Budgiecat

      lol no I dont trust their skills for those

      • I Don’t Care About Your Waifu

        MOE JOJO

      • zodd

        Can’t be worse than CC2 take on JoJo.

        • Budgiecat

          actually it can

  • Otaku DJK1NG (YouTube)

    Animal Crossing lol just kidding
    if only it wasn’t just anime choices

  • Mellow

    I really hope this isn’t going to eat into their resources towards Atelier, Surge Concerto and other IPs (maybe pick up and finish Chronos Materia one of these days)? Hoping that by ‘collaboration’ they just mean costumes and stuff, would be crushed to see Gust churning out anime adaption-centric games at the expense of their own series.

  • Budgiecat

    plse leave OPM, HXH alone

  • Sneeze

    What collaboration means in this case?

  • Zeria


  • DizzyGear

    PC ports. Ciel noSurge localisation. ANYTHING but this.

  • DesmaX

    But they don’t even have the budget for their own games

  • Ruggarell

    Fairy Tail because I want to play a Fairy Tail game on my PS4.

  • Mạnh Vương
  • ivanchu77

    What the hell is this? hope they don´t ruin Gust and let them work in what they do best, shonen anime and Gust is like oil and water, i think they are very unfitting to work with any of those IP

  • Kero

    “One Piece, Sword Art Online”

    Yes, yes, YES PLEASE!

    I don’t care about the rest of the poll.

  • 「Pyrofrost」

    tbh, including the “other” option in this survey was a bad idea, unless it was tacked on as an option to gauge what their audience liked other than the selected or PR purposes.

    • DizzyGear

      I put in: Localise Ciel noSurge instead

  • Zaraki

    How about more Alchemy! Full Metal Alchemist!

  • Hoverbike
  • Phelan

    Not really a fan of any of the series above. But if I had to name something than either FMA, Ergo Proxy (which btw seems like a perfect material for a game)… or Monster…. or Spice And Wolf mainly because I’m sucker for that particular series.

  • Geese Howard

    They have an ‘others’ option right? Will Bible Black or Discipline crossover Gust’s game be possible too? :p

  • Jinathin

    Would love to see them make game for Is it wrong to pick up girls in dungeon series. Classic RPG material plz

  • Nerroth

    Perhaps they could let Gust-chan go back to Gamindustri?

    Maybe as part of an alchemy-themed spinoff, using a re-skinned Atelier game engine.

  • Darak

    For the ones I see above I’d go with HxH and One Punch man, really great shows with almost no great games, SAO, Naruto and One Piece are getting games non stop, and Fairy Tail sucks so, yeah

  • Fooey

    When I think of collaboration I think of like Gust x Atlus or something, not some anime adaption thing.

  • James Reilly

    “Other” is currently winning [50%~] but that could be split with a ton of anime. One Punch Man [46%~] and SAO [34%~] are the next two leading. I kind of hope Gust doesn’t do anime collaboration games. Leave that to Bamco. Rather see Gust keep chugging out their own IP.

  • Suriel Cruz

    If Anime-related game is about, give it to Cyber Connect 2. THE GODS OF ANIME GAMES DEPICTION.

    • zodd

      But their gameplay…

      • BrokenSkullZero

        I would want CC2 to do the cutscenes story bits and have platinum make the combat systems.

        But someone needs to make good environmental designs…

      • Suriel Cruz

        Anime is VISUAL. ^ ^

  • Chestnut Bowl

    SAO crafting game starring Lizbeth, please.

  • Mark Lengod

    Rune Atelier
    Atelier Factory
    Harvest Atelier
    Atelier of Seasons
    Atelier no Monogatari

    I’d LOVE something between those lines


    I think its better to try for new ground than have another company beat the dead horse called crossover or merger or collaboration.

  • Learii

    Shaman Kings, Rurouni Kenshin or Rave Master if not how about a Musou Gust games cross over like Ar noSurge + Nights of Azure, + Ar Tonelico + Atelier

  • Delicious Fried Chocobo

    Akagami no shirayuki hime, this would be the perfect anime for gust, i’m sure they could do something great with it.

    That or fairytail, i’ve not seen that many games for it but its a great series.

    • chroma816

      Oh my god, yes. Shirayuki felt like watching Atelier: The Anime and it was wonderful.

      I’d love to see them make that into a game.

  • YamRyu

    I’m unfamiliar with Gust but decided to vote anyway. Picked One Punch Man and put Gurren Lagann for “Other”.

  • Chie Is Life

    persona please

  • Limbless


  • TheEndlessSlaughter

    crossing my fingers for a fate console rpg but that’ll never happen

  • Elle

    They should continue to make new IPs (like the interesting azure game) Leave the budget starved never living up to its full potential crossover bs to the other branches of tecmo & koei.

  • Elvick

    Of course, right after I delete my facebook. Oh well. Someone vote for Fairy Tail for me. :P

    • Zackasaur

      *votes for Bleach*

  • Hexodious

    I voted for ‘other’ as in Rune Factory, I feel those two franchises would work great together as a collab (Atelier x RF)

  • TitanAnteus

    Everyone go vote Mana Khemia 3 XD.
    Last game I bought from them was Ar NoSurge after Escha and Logy.

  • ayanami-chan

    One Punch Man or Fairy Tail…

  • Raphael Cuyugan

    I’d want a Gintama RPG man. And also partner up with Bandai Namco since they’ve done Gintama games and also produced the anime as well. Make Tommy heavenly6/Tommy february6/The Brilliant Green sing the OP too.


    Would be better if this was done with another game company and their games.
    Cross Edge may not have been the best executed title(even though I enjoyed it), but the idea behind it was sound. Might be time to try that again.

  • Zazon Zenzy

    GUST…? A licensed title…? Uh… What?

    I choose the other with Idolm@ster. What? It has anime too, you know?

  • SoloKazama

    FAIRY TAIL by GUST – they are easly capable to do it RIGHT! Town when you have guild house,world map when u go for quests and story. Level up FT characters, new skills, equipment etc (party of 4). Would be pure awesomeness.

  • Naygen

    I effing want Mana Khemia back.

  • Saul Espinosa

    Videogame of hunter x hunter or fairy tail that are a good animes but not have a videogame for HD consoles

  • Daniel DayMaker Banks

    Hunter x Hunter x One Piece or Hunter x Hunter x Fairy Tail maybe Fairy Tail x One Piece that would be awesome either one
