While the Atelier series has generally had fairly reliable localization prospects since the PS2 era, this was not the case for earlier games in the series which has been left behind, available in Japanese only.
Today, a step is taken to close the gap as a fantranslation of Atelier Marie + Elie, the first two games in the series has been released. Considered to be the forefathers of Japanese “crafting” Simulation games, now’s a good opportunity to experience the roots of how the genre came to be.
(Though strictly speaking, this is technically a translation of the PS2 version, which is an enhanced port of the original PSX release.)
