What is the Altier series like? It seems interesting, but I don'y know much about it.

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.

Hm... sounds like fun.

Sorry to interrupt the topic, I was just considering buying it.

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.

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.
