Ar Tonelico 3 Offical Site, Teaser, and Info oh my!

do do do do do want

 
Ar Tonelico 3’s world – Sol Cluster is pretty much dominated by β-class Reyvatail which are the ruling class. They reside in the country of Clustania. The ideal world to them consists only of Reyvateils and purified humans. Purified humans are inferior to the Reyvatails. The rest of the humanity stays in the land of 大牙 (Great Fang)?. It is a pretty dark world as compared to the previous Ar Tonelico series imo - The Banzai Effect.
  Oh man oh man oh man... I'm starting to get pretty excited for Ar Tonelico 3. While a lot of that has to do with what sounds like an amazing soundtrack, all these 1st and 3rd person adventures have left me craving a good, plot driven pile of RPG goodness. While it might seem like suicide to put any RPG out a month after December's Final Fantasty XIII, I hope all of that buzz drives up interest and hunger to this PS3 exclusive game.
 
The official site has launched (yay music,) but The Banzai Effect has been trickling out pearls of information about the characters and system, so make sure you check that out.

Metal Gear 4 didn't, FF XIII didn't nor did any other titles... But this IS making me buy a PS3...
 
Funny thing is, I was listening to the Ar Tonelico 2 Hymmnos Concert discs just when I read this...

Looks like I need to buy a PS3

@HeeroYuy: DId you check out Star Ocean?
 
@Thage: I don't know what it is, like... I basically just giggled at Ar Tonelico 1 jokes, but I'm getting so hyped for this game.

@John_Martone: Star Ocean 4 for 360 is part of a continuing series.... jumping into that seems like jumping into Return of the Jedi without having seen or knowing anything about the prior events. Also Ar Tonelico II was pretty awesome to me.

I'm so happy to see the Gust titles settling down on PS3. Call me sad, but those and the Megaten titles are what I've been waiting for on a 360 vs. PS3 purchase.

i lost interest after seeing all the cosmospheres scenes, but i wonder is Gust plans on ending the series with this game, i can't see how other then a rush ending or a cliff hanger though
