Here is a piece of artwork.

While the outlet is not revealing the name of the title quite yet, it did point out that Koei Tecmo recently released Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland DX in Japan, and that the end of the game features a scene not present in the original version or Plus version of the game. That scene is this one:

Weekly Famitsu releases on Thursdays in Japan, but information from the magazine usually leaks on Wednesday mornings (Tuesday nights Eastern time). Look forward to more information then.

Update 11:23 p.m.: Atelier Lulua: The Alchemist of Arland 4 has been announced for PlayStation 4 and Switch. Read more here.
