Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy To Release This Winter on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and STEAM

Following on from the games announcement earlier this month publisher KOEI TECMO Europe have today announced that Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy will launch physically and digitally onto the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via STEAM) this Winter.

This ‘winter’ release window means that fans can expect the game to arrive between  22nd December 2020 and 23rd March 2021, and this is when Winter takes place within the northern hemisphere. In addition to the release date publisher KOEI TECMO Europe went on to reveal some additional details about the game, including information that this sequel takes place three years after the first game.

In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Ryza returns for an all-new adventure, this time set three years after her heroic efforts in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. This dynamic sequel revolves around Ryza’s journey to the Royal Capital of Ashra-am Baird as she explores ancient ruins while seeking the truth behind the mystery of the lost legends. Along the way, she will be able to learn a number of new skills to help her successfully navigate the dangers of her surroundings, including the ability to swim. Ryza’s newfound swimming techniques help her not only discover aquatic materials but also the entrance to an underwater dungeon.

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.

In addition to this information KOEI TECMO confirmed that those who have save data from the first game will be able to unlock original costumes for selective characters in the second game. Naturally the save data must be on the same platform as the sequel. Finally those who purchase Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy during its release window (2 weeks) will be able to receive a bonus outfit for free. It is expected that the relevant outfit will be available to download from the respective storefronts but details were not specified.

Regardless; fans of Atelier Ryza will be able to enjoy Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy when it launches onto the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC later this winter.
