Gust are releasing five Atelier 7″ records for series’ 25th anniversary

Developer Gust are releasing five different 7″ records for the Atelier role-playing game series for the 25th anniversary of the series. The games represented are Atelier Marie, Atelier Elie, Atelier Lilie, Atelier Judie and Atelier Violet (or the Salburg and Gramnad series).

All five releases will be 7″ records housed in 7″ jackets with art from their respective game. They will all be 33RPM and feature 4 songs each. They will also all include a download code for digital copies of the tracks.

They are priced at ¥2640 each and will require a proxy service in order to place an order (unless you have a Japanese address available). There are currently no estimate for release date listed.

They can all be preordered via Gust’s store here (you can switch between the different titles in the dropdown and there are also bundle options although there do not appear to be any savings with those).
