UDON Entertainment is bringing two Ryza artbooks to the West with full English translations. Both originally published in Japanese by Kadokawa Game Linkage Inc, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout Official Visual Collection and Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy Official Visual Collection include illustrations and information on Ryza’s adventures on Kurken Island, Ashara-am Baird, and beyond.

From UDON Entertainment:

Containing stunningly beautiful official artwork and character illustrations by Toridamono, these books also include rare and little-seen artworks, character illustrations, 3D models, environment images, weapon and monster designs, and some very surprising bonus materials! Both books also feature exclusive interviews between Toridamono and Executive Producer Junzo Hosoi offering insight into the Atelier series of games, and how it has changed with these newest titles.

Fans of Atelier Ryza or the Atelier series in general will absolutely adore the wealth of artworks and lore in these collections, and it will be a must-add to your book shelves whether you’re a life-long fan of the Atelier series or you’ve just begun your adventures with Ryza, Klaudia, Lent, and Tao!

Both books will be available in Spring 2023.
