Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout “Enchanting” Details Revealed

KOEI TECMO, in partnership with development studio GUST, have recently revealed new gameplay details for the latest entry into the Atelier franchise, known as Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, which is being released onto the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via Steam) on 1st November 2019.

In this instance KOEI TECMO have provided details on Linkage Synthesis, Item Rebuild and other gameplay functionalities found within the world of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout; all of which is listed below:

Updated Synthesis:
Throughout her journey, Ryza will rely upon her newfound powers of synthesis; creating items which will help her overcome any obstacle in her path, including the powerful new threat facing her beloved hometown. In fact, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout features a completely revamped synthesis interface, which clearly displays the required materials and effects that can be added to items at a glance. 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. 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.

Item Rebuild:
The new ‘Item Rebuild’ process then allows for these created 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.

Theme Song:
The theme song for Atelier Ryza has also been released and can be viewed below.

Limited Edition:
Those eager to begin their enchanting adventure are able to pre-order a Limited-Edition version of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout, exclusively available through the NISA Europe Online Store. Within this Limited-Edition, fans will uncover must-have collectable content, including; a physical version of the game, an official hardcover art book, a selection of art cards, a collectable key-chain, and a deluxe cloth poster – all packaged up in a beautiful collector’s box featuring artwork of Ryza and her beloved companions.
