‘Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy’ to Launch in North America on January 26

The sequel to last year’s Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout will be released in North America on January 26, 2021.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy will launch in North America on January 26 for PS4, Switch, PC via Steam, and digitally for PS5 (the physical PS5 release was cancelled). A new trailer has been released that shows off the gameplay:

The sequel is set three years after KOEI Tecmo Games’ Gust brand’s Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout (Ryza no Atelier ~Tokoyami no Joō to Himitsu no Kakurega~) game. In the story, Ryza travels to the Royal Capital of Ashra-am Baird and explores ancient ruins to uncover the mystery of lost legends. She can learn new skills such as the ability to swim.

KOEI Tecmo America describes the game as follows:

Throughout her journey, Ryza will once again be joined by her fun-loving group of mischievous friends. The first of these old companions confirmed for Ryza 2 is Klaudia. The only daughter of a merchant family, Klaudia has been working in the Royal Capital, but all the while, thinking back to the adventure she had with Ryza three years prior. Klaudia still has the desire to live a more exciting life, and now finds her fate once again intertwined with Ryza as they regroup inside the Royal Capital. Also joining Ryza this time around is a mysterious creature known as Fi. The creature doesn’t speak, but is very expressive and full of emotion, bonding quickly with Ryza while helping her seek answers to the true meaning of the lost legends.

Those who purchase the game during the first two weeks of release will receive a code for the Summer Fashion Costume Set. Players who have save data from the previous game will be able to unlock the Classic Costume Set.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy will be available for PS4, Switch, PC via Steam, and PS5 (digitally) on January 26, 2021.
