Atelier Ryza

PS4™ & SW – US, EU & Japan

Last time, we get to see Atelier Ryza’s breathtaking universe with Ryza herself and her friends in its recent trailer featuring the game’s theme song, “Nijiiro No Summer” (Rainbow Summer) sung by Sayaka Kanda.

Now, publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust shared a bunch of new information, trailer, and screenshots for the upcoming JRPG, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout.

The main highlight of this new update is the new characters: Lila Decyrus, Kilo Shiness, and Agatha Harmon. Plus, the Linkage Synthesis and Item Rebuild systems have also been detailed.

You can check out the translation below, via Gematsu.

■ Characters

Lila Decyrus (voiced by Haruka Terui)

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

A female warrior shrouded in mystery who accompanies Empel.

Together with Empel, Lila is a roaming female warrior who finds her way to Rasenboden Village.

Though she has a mysterious appearance, she is highly skilled in combat and agrees to teach Ryza and her friends how to fight in real battles.

Lila has a cool and composed demeanor. She uses words sparingly and keeps to the point.

It seems she is surveying the ruins on Kurken Island…

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

A strong-willed spirit user.

A woman referred to as a spirit user who is somewhat frail-looking. In order to protect something important, she continues to fight on her own.

Ryza and company will run into Kilo in unexpected places.

Agatha Harmon (voiced by Masumi Asano)

The top swordsman protecting the village.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

The leader of the “Guardians” that protect Rasenboden Village. Among the Guardians, no one can match her skill with a sword.

She is fair and just. While she respects public order, she is not coldhearted and is quite popular among the villagers. She reliably watches over the considerable growth of the little brats that were once a handful.

■ Linkage Synthesis

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout features a completely revamped system interface, which clearly displays the required materials and effects that can be added to items at a glance. With this system, anyone can easily become a beginner alchemist.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

—By adding in materials, the connected cells will link.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

—Unlocking new cells will uncover new effects.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

This new “Linkage Synthesis” system features a fixed number of cells that players can unlock via strategic item placement, extending a variety of different results imbued onto the final product depending on the way the cell branches.

Even with the same recipe, different effects can be acquired depending on how the cell is unlocked. By unlocking the left side of the cell, you can get the “Mountain Breaker” and “Earth Shaker: Medium” effects, while by unlocking the right side of the cell, you can obtain the “Boulder Breaker” and “Oceans in Concert: Medium” effects.

Tips for beginners:

  • Simply adding in the materials that meet the conditions for unlocking the cell is OK.
  • The conditions and details are explained on the screen and are easy to understand, so simply choose and synthesize without worry.
  • There is also an “Automatic Material Add” feature, which chooses and synthesizes materials automatically.

Tips for experts:

  • If the number of materials you can add is limited, be sure to check the cells with the effects you want to obtain.
  • Cells that have two or more unlocked cells connected can be unlocked at the same time by adding materials that meet both cells’ conditions.

With Linkage Synthesis, special change recipe cells can also be uncovered to unlock new recipes, enabling aspiring alchemists to experiment with different items while discovering exciting new results. The conditions for unlocking recipes are easy to understand, and you can develop your own recipes. Finding a change recipe is your opportunity to develop a new recipe.

—By highlighting the “Plajig” material, the change recipe details will appear.

—By adding the materials that meet the conditions to the recipe cell…

—The Plajig will transform into “Shtola Plajig.” Additionally, bonuses such as effects and cell unlocks may also occur.

■ Item Rebuild

The new “Item Rebuild” process allows for synthesized items to be used again during synthesis. Rebuilding an item offers the chance to make it stronger than it was originally built—the more times an item is rebuilt, the more superior it will become.

However, rebuilding an item also causes the amount of dexterity required to increase, limiting the amount of characters who will be able to us them. Choosing between item strength and ease of use is now vital when planning battle strategies.

—By consuming the special “Gem” materials, you can rebuild synthesized items.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

—By rebuilding an item, all cells will unlock.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

—In addition to having various effects and special traits, the quality will increase 100 percent.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

—Even the basic synthesis item Lezerft can be made super powerful through Item Rebuild.
