According to various information scattered about the depths of the interweb, it appears that Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has dropped the details on Atelier Rorana, a JRPG exclusive to the PlayStation 3.
Two exclusive RPG announcements in two days?! We're just as surprised as you are. While the game is only currently confirmed for Japan, the development studio, Gust, brought its PS2 RPGs over to North America, so there's no reason to expect that it won't do the same for Atelier Rorana.
There aren't any hard details available about the game so far; more information is expected to arrive on March 27. For now, enjoy the following image from Famitsu.

I truely agree.....how long can they undermind this genre!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Althought this looks fruity I'm willing to try anything to get away from fps/ shooters

Actually, the magazine is Degenki (not Famitsu) and the game is called Atelier RORONA (not Rorana), as you can easily see from the scans.
Try to be a bit more accurate...

Dont argue about fruitiness, It's JRPG support, this is what many PS3 owners and potential owners have been demanding. They wont all be winners, but for their to be any winners we have to start getting the titles first.

Well, how about some REAL JRPGs, not more cutesy Barbie-ish fluff like Eternal Sonata? If you're going to open the doors, let's step away from the ladies' room, please.

Not sure about this game but it is nice to see some RPGs in the pipeline. I feel like PS3 and Xbox are both relying to much on shooters. And while I LOVE Bioshock my favorite two games this generation outside of that title have been Mass Effect and Fallout 3. More RPG and for the love of god are there going to be any more good platformers this generation besides Ratchet and Clank?
