Koei Tecmo and GUST Studios launched their latest Atelier title today, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout in North America. It’s now available on PC, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch, bringing a new story arc to the Atelier franchise.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout follows teenage tomboy Ryza and her band of mischievous friends, Lent and Tao, who yearn for adventure and excitement far away from their mundane village life. The friends wind up searching a forbidden island, where they encounter a wandering alchemist and his warrior partner (Empel and Lila), who change their lives forever.
Throughout Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, players will utilize completely revamped synthesis and battle systems – collecting and synthesizing raw materials into powerful items for battle. The new synthesis interface clearly displays the required materials and effects that can be added to the final item at a glance; using a ‘Linkage Synthesis’ system to easily display item placement. This latest addition to the franchise should offer fun and excitement for newcomers to the series and veterans alike. Players will be building their own secret hideout and will be able to fully customize it completely for the first time ever. There’s so much to see and do, so don’t miss out!
