A couple days ago Atelier Ryza was announced via the Dangeki Playstation Magazine, the latest instalment to the ever growing Atelier Series from Gust. It was initially announced for Playstation 4 (as coming from a Playstation magazine), but now we have a more formal announcement of the game from Famitsu.
Atelier Ryza is a new coming of age story that focuses on a new world construction method through expression. The title is being written by Gust and Shakugan no Shana manga creator Yashichiro Takahashi.
Ryzalin Staud (the titular character) is a free willing girl who is always looking for excitement with her friends. She has a very strong sense of justice to the point arrogance if she thinks she is in the right. The story is about her finding something dear that she never knew was until she became an Alchemist and met a “certain someone”.
The game will also be launching on PS4 and Nintendo Switch this Fall in Japan, with a PC release to follow soon after. We will likely hear later in the year about it’s Western release, which will likely be early 2020.
What are your thoughts on a new Atelier game being announced? Do you think they are releasing too many of these games so close to each other? Let us know in those comments!
