It’s definitely not common nowadays for JRPG titles to be ported over to handheld consoles like the PlayStation Vita. NIS America and Tecmo Koei have done this in the past, but this is actually a bit of a first as Temco Koei has announced that Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland will be available for the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3 on June 24th. The new version of Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland includes brand new 3D character models, new artwork,  a restructured gameplay system and tons of new content and characters.
