Since Tecmo Koei’s localization of Shin Rorona was news to me, I went and bought the JP version of the game a month before the English version came out. Welp. As far as the game goes, the story is largely the same as the original’s, and even some aspects that I expected them to change (like having to pay your friends for them to accompany you) remained. For a “review,” it’d be faster to just list the changes and new content added.
Despite being called Atelier Rorona Plus in English, the added content is much more than what they did with Totori’s and Meruru’s Vita ports.
