A bit of non-anime or manga goodness at this past weekend's Anime Expo 2012 came from NIS America's panel. The publisher confirmed the western localization of Atelier Ayesha, and asked that fans wait three or four months for more information about the English version.
Atelier Ayesha was released on PlayStation 3 in Japan last week, an event that was celebrated with a nice launch trailer. Check that out if you missed it, and we'll be sure to keep you posted on updates to the impending western release. As Siliconera points out, the recently released Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland hit outside of Japan a bit under a year after its Japanese release, so adjust your timing expectations accordingly.
