Koei Tecmo revealed new details today for their forthcoming Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. Budding alchemist Ryza and her group of friends are going to set out for adventure, but circumstances put them into the depths of the Sunken Mine. This deep, dark environment is home to a potentially great evil: a gate leading to another world.
Players will create a secret hideout that will serve as their base of operations, and this is where Ryza will work on her alchemy synthesizes between travels. Players will also be able to use the new Gathering Synthesis system from the hideout to create new lands to explore. Item Duplication and more await in this new secret hideout.
Since Ryza’s Secret Hideout would not be complete without personalization, players will be able to customize their hideout to reflect their own personality through using various items found while exploring the multiple worlds. Ryza and her team will be able to increase their stats depending on how the base is remodeled, and the gathered items can be utilized strategically to grant useful stat boosts on the field during battle.
