Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout Announced for November Release on Nintendo Switch & PlayStation 4

Koeci Tecmo Europe have announced that the latest addition to GUST’s long-standing JRPG franchise ‘Atelier’ will be released in the west as Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, and more importantly it will be released on the 1st November 2019 within Europe for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Synopsis: 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.

The announcement of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout not only introduces fans to a new entry in the long-standing-franchise; but it also introduces fans to new characters, environments and -more importantly- improved visuals and gameplay options. For starters new lighting and shadow effects have been used to create a more vibrant world while character designs have been visually refreshed for that added sparkle.  It’s not just visual flair that has received an update, as an all-new evolved synthesis program has been introduced that enables alchemists to better understand the effects of synthesis visually and create even more items using different resources found within the field.

We can expect Koei Tecmo Europe and GUST Studio’s to reveal more information for Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout in the near future; but in the meantime it is scheduled for a 1st November 2019 release on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
