Atelier Ryza ~Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout~ launched on 26th September in Japan, and what a wonderful week it was for KOEI Tecmo and Gust. During it’s launch week – according to a report by Wall-Street Journal – Atelier Ryza has reached over 150,000 sales in Japan on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
This is an amazing feat and the strongest launch the 22-year-old Atelier series has ever seen. Hopefully this means more big things are coming from Gust, considering they recently announced their first ever collaboration project last month.

It wasn’t long ago that Atelier Ryza was announced, and now we have a Western release set in stone for you all to get excited about. This will mark the third Atelier title to release in this year alone, and sounds to be a completely new series of titles.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout is coming out 29th October for North America and 1st November for Europe. It will be launching on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
You can read the official description of the game below:
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout begins an all-new storyline arc in GUST Studios’ fan-favourite Atelier series. The beautiful role-playing game follows the exploits of teenage tomboy Ryza, who dreams of escaping her mundane village lifestyle alongside her band of mischievous friends. One day, as they explore a forbidden island in search of adventure, they meet an elderly magician who will change their lives forever. After some convincing, the old man begins teaching Ryza the enchanting ways of alchemy, launching her on an adventure that will ultimately lead her on a quest to save her hometown from the mysterious and deadly darkness lurking beneath the surface.
In order to showcase the vibrant environments surrounding Ryza, GUST Studios instituted more realistic shadows, giving birth to a world that feels more expansive and filled with life. In addition, the fantastical depictions of the game’s colourful characters continue, pushing the series forward with a mix of both new and familiar visual sparkle.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout also introduces RPG fans to an all-new evolved synthesis program that enables alchemists to better understand the effects of synthesis visually. Additionally, the system allows everyone to not only enjoy the experience of developing recipes, but the ability to use the innovative creation system to gather items in the field using various tools — different tools uncover different items at the same location — before crafting unique items never before seen in the series.

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.

With the upcoming release of Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists, in case you forgot another Atelier title is arriving in a few months time. Atelier Lulua ~The Scion of Arland~, and KOEI Tecmo have now gone into further detail towards their extensive Synthesis system.
Set a fair while after the last title in the Arland series, you play as Lulua Frixell, the daughter of Rorona (the titular character of the first Arland title). On your adventure you’ll be discovering both new and old landscapes, and see how time has changed the world of Arland, for best or worse. Within the numerous environments you’ll get to explore, you’ll find many Materials you can pick up and use for your future Synthesising.
You can read the full explanation below:
Following the adventures of the young Lulua Frixell, players set out to uncover the mysteries of an ancient codex and the land of Arland itself! Along Lulua’s journey she’ll discover beautiful lands– some new and un-explored –whilst others have been affected by the tides of time since Rorona, Totori, and Meruru once travelled across Arland. Throughout these diverse environments, players will find a bounty of raw materials, and as they fully explore each area they will not only unlock new places to explore, but they’ll have a higher chance of finding rarer resources to help Lulua in her quest to learn the ultimate truth about the mysterious kingdom of Arland.
These rare materials are used as part of the game’s Synthesis system, a fundamental part of the Atelier series which allows alchemists to create new items. In Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland players will decrypt the codex to unlock a variety of new and exciting recipes which will in turn, help them throughout their adventure. The Synthesis system in this latest entry combines the Arland trilogy’s ‘quality’ and ‘trait’ systems, allowing for items to take on entirely new characteristics, along with the Mysterious trilogy’s ‘elements’ and ‘boost item’, giving items powerful abilities that wouldn’t be previously possible. These fresh-yet-familiar systems synthesise together with the new ‘Awakened Effects’ mechanic to offer a bounty of possibilities to aspiring alchemists.
When at the cauldron, players can use a raw material with the ‘Awakened Effects’ ability in the mix to give the resulting item a secondary element –combine a Fire Damage Awakened Effect material with a Thunder Bomb –, and the resulting item will be a bomb which releases both thunder and fire for a devastating blow! As players learn all of the Synthesis system’s intricacies, they’ll be able to create a variety of unique and useful items to use throughout the lands of Arland and in battle.
Alongside this news, a new set of gameplay trailers have also been provided to showcase the Synthesis gameplay for you to observe yourself. You can view these below:
It wasn’t too long ago that KOEI Tecmo announced a nifty Limited Edition for Atelier Lulua, which you can pre-order now over at NIS Europe / NIS America Online Store.
Atelier Lulua ~The Scion of Arland~ will be releasing May 21st in the US and May 24th in EU for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
