The game is being developed by Omega Force (in-house Tecmo Koei developers).

An expansion of the original PS3 game, Atelier Totori Plus will feature more costumes, illustrations and alchemy recipes; it will also provide downloadable characters for owners of the PS3 version.

Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland was released in America and Europe one year after its 2010 Japan release; therefore Atelier Totori Plus is likely to have a similar delay for a UK release.
