KOEI TECMO and GUST Studios have revealed some new details about their upcoming game, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key. Some of these details include more about traveling the world in Atelier Ryza 3 and some of the features new to this latest entry. You can read all about it from the latest press release, down below. Also down below, is the game’s opening movie which KOEI TECMO just released. Oh and pictured above, is a new piece of artwork revealed by KOEI TECMO. The press release states that this artwork created by Toridamono, the Atelier Ryza series illustrator, will be the inlay of the physical version of the game, exclusively in the American and European versions. Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam this upcoming March 24th, 2023.
In Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key, players will investigate a strange group of islands and explore various regions while attempting to unravel a mysterious new threat to their hometown. Throughout their adventure, they will pick up randomly generated quests, but will also encounter a new type of quests, World Quests. By completing these quests, each specific to the regions they travel through, players will learn more about the territories and the colorful characters they meet along the way. But beware, completing a World Quest may result in changes to the field and other areas!
As players explore the regions, they will discover bonfires scattered throughout the field where their party can rest and Ryza can cook delicious recipes for herself and her friends. This new Atelier cooking system enables players to obtain recipes by completing quests, helping to enhance their party in a variety of ways, and even allowing for a whole new strategy level when challenging strong enemies. Bonfires also allow Ryza and her friends to rest, changing the time of the day and therefore enemies nearby.
In addition to building bonfires, players will also be able to build their own atelier in each region to serve as a base for the adventure. The atelier provides various effects depending on the building style as players will be able to choose from three different types of structures: the research base, which is advantageous for exploration, the farm for gathering, and the laboratory for synthesis. Ryza’s friend, the fan-favorite Puni, will accompany her in each atelier after construction. Players will be able to feed and raise them into the Puni of their liking, with their appearance changing depending on the food they eat. Players will even be able to send Puni out into the world to collect materials for them.
