Essentially the Atelier games are RPGs, only your protagonist is usually a shop owner that specializes in creating items and equipment and typically the goal in an Atelier game is rather small scale - keep your store in the black, earn money to pay off a debt, etc. They also usually have a time mechanic - creating items and travelling takes time and most goals you're given have a time limit.
Also in most Atelier games typically only your alchemist characters, which will be your protagonist and maybe some others, can use the items - all other party members must rely on their equipment and skills. --- "Don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you."

I played Atelier Annie a long time ago on a whim after seeing it on new releases, and I thought it was definitely enjoyable for RPG fans who want something different. I never managed to finish it due to still not fully understanding how the game is supposed to want you to play it, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless. --- http://i41.tinypic.com/2yxi5h5.gif

On the 3DS? No, not really. The closest I could think of is the Harvest Moon games, but even then it's not that similar.
If you have a PS3, you should go for the Atelier Arland series.
Can't find them anymore, and um, I meant for DS/3DS, any system really.
What the heck are you talking about? All the Atelier games are available on Amazon, even the PS2 games. And they are reasonably priced too. --- "you cant call it piracy if they wont sell it to you in the first place." -Fallenswords FCs, PSN and Gamertag in profile

don't get these games if there all like atlier merumeru. that game was terrible they give a three year time limit doing ANYTHING takes at least a day not to mention taking several days to make materials required pass a quest,and unlike majora's mask you CANNOT reset your timelimit.
So since you lack time management skills its a terrible game? I got ya good to know you can't be counted on as a grown up now...maybe ever. --- Yes? Hm?what?quit poking me!!!!
