Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy Synthesis Functionalities Detailed

Ever since it’s unveiling during the Japanese Nintendo Direct Mini earlier this year KOEI TECMO Games have slowly been revealing gameplay features for Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, and today is no different with details of the Skills and Synthesis functionalities being explained.

Naturally those already familiar with Atelier Ryza will already be familiar with what to expect from its sequel, but the details provided by KOEI TECMO Europe can be found below:

Storyline:

In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Ryza departs her peaceful hometown of Kurken Island to visit the bustling Royal Capital of Ashra-am Baird, setting up her own atelier shop while exploring the ancient ruins of the land. To uncover the mysteries that lurk within the ruins, Ryza will need to traverse her environment in entirely new ways — swinging, climbing, crawling, and even squeezing her way past a variety of obstacles. While some of these abilities may come easy to her, she’ll need the help of the mystical ‘Emerald Band’ to allow her to swing across treacherous gaps, while the remarkable ‘Air Drops’ allow her to dive underwater as Ryza looks to uncover areas with a wealth of materials perfect for synthesis.

Synthesis:

Synthesis is a key part of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, as it allows Ryza to take the raw materials she finds in the field and craft them into incredibly useful items for battle, gathering and exploration. The ‘Linkage Synthesis’ system from Atelier Ryza has evolved with greater depth, enabling players to simply fill the Material Loops with the required ingredients to create everything from weapons and tools to medicine. In addition, the newly introduced ‘Essence’ feature now allows players to alter the elemental trait of an item during synthesis, and by altering the essence of a Material Loop the final item can take on brand-new qualities. The “Evolution Link” takes things a step further, as players will now be able to combine two fully synthesised items together and, depending on the items thrown into the mix, might uncover an extraordinary new item.

KOEI TECMO Europe also went on to explain that a Summer Fashion Costume Set will be available to download from the respective storefronts for the first two weeks of release to either physical or digital owners and those who have save data from the first game will gain access to the classic costume.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy will be available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via STEAM).
