The tiny kingdom of Arls, located on the northeastern border of the Arland Republic,
is where Princess Meruru calls home. Ever since she was exposed to alchemy by
famed adventurer Totori Helmold, all she could think about was becoming an
alchemist. With Totori’s guidance, Meruru sets out to develop her home kingdom of
Arls using the power of alchemy. On her way, Meruru will encounter new adventures,
obstacles, mysteries, and friends, and discover what life is like outside the castle
walls. How you choose to guide her through the advancement of her land will
determine the final outcome in the tale of Atelier Meruru.
