Koei Tecmo and Gust's upcoming JRPG Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & Secret Key is getting close to its release, and the developers are celebrating.
Koei Tecmo has been working with several popular artists to count down to the release of the game, providing some beautiful depictions of Ryza herself and the rest of the game's heroines.
The artwork has been published daily on the series's official Twitter account, and you can see all the Tweets below, each linking to the respective artist's account. We get to see art created by well-known artists like Mai Okuma, hungry_clicker, Yuri Kisaragi, and more.
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & Secret Key was announced at Tokyo Game Show 2022 and is the sequel of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, originally released between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 across Japan and the west. It's the ending of the first trilogy in the Atelier series to retain the same protagonist across all three games, since Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout launched in 2019. This is certainly a testament to Ryza's popularity, also thanks to the charming character design by Toridamono.
According to its developers, it'll also be the last game featuring Ryza, so fans will have to soon say goodbye to one of the most beloved heroines in the history of the Atelier franchise.
The game has already gone gold and it will release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC on March 24, 2023.
Incidentally, recently we also heard more about Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg which will bring back the first game of the series and will mark its debut in the west since it was never localized before.
