The Atelier series continues with Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy by Koei Temco.
This story takes place three years after the events of the previous game Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, and depicts the reunion of Ryza and her friends, who go through new encounters and goodbyes to discover a true priceless treasure. A chance meeting with a strange creature will eventually lead to a change in her life and a brand new adventure near the royal capital of Ashra-am Baird.
Ryza and friends can now explore the world through swimming, climbing walls, and using magic ropes to travel across chasms. The real-time tactics battle system returns with new improvements and faster movement, and the synthesis system also adds a new layer of strategy that will give Ryza and her party the power they need to explore the world.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy is available for the PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.
Ryza can now perform many new actions in the field, including diving underwater, using plants to climb walls, moving through narrow gaps, and using magic ropes to travel between separated areas. These and other abilities allow Ryza to explore various areas and ruins more fully and actively.
