Koei Tecmo and GUST Studios have announced that Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout is being localized for release in Europe and North America.
The role-playing game will start an all-new storyline arc in the Atelier series and will follow teenage tomboy Ryza who dreams of escaping her mundane village lifestyle with her band of mischievous friends.
As they explore a forbidden island in search of adventure, they discover an elderly magician who changes their lives forever. He teaches Ryza the enchanting ways of alchemy, which soon results in her setting out on a quest to save her hometown from a mysterious and deadly darkness that lurks beneath the surface.
With more realistic shadows to help showcase the game’s vibrant environments, a newly evolved synthesis program will also be introduced to help players better understand what they’re concocting visually.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout will release for Nintendo Switch in North America on October 29th, and in Europe on November 1st.
