Atelier Ryza 2 Gameplay Trailer Teases More Returning Party Members, Bonus Costumes, Japan Limited Edition
Atelier Ryza 2 got a new gameplay trailer. It'll include summer themed bonus costumes in its early print copies and has gorgeous Japanese Limited Editions.
Following its reveal during the latest Nintendo Direct Mini, Koei Tecmo and Gust published a new gameplay video of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy.
The trailer most notably introduces Fi, a new character that will join Ryza in her adventure. Fi is a fairy and the person the “Secret Fairy” part of the title seems to refer to.
Besides swimming, riding animals, and using a Lupin The Third grappling hook, Ryza can also climb, crawl and explore in a lot of new ways.
The trailer and the new key visual revealed also tease more returning characters, as we can see silhouettes very similar to Lent, and Tao, who isn’t a shota anymore seeing the timeskip.
Atelier Ryza 2 early print copies will include a bonus Summer Fashion Costume Set for all characters. Players who have their Atelier Ryza 1 save will be able to unlock the party members’ outfits from the first game.
Note that the Japanese version of the trailer also revealed the Japanese Limited Edition: As usual with Gust games there are two of them. The first one is the Premium Box Limited Edition. The second one, with all the contents of the first one plus more, is the Special Collection Box.
The shop specific preorder goods in Japan were not revealed yet.
Atelier Ryza 2 Gameplay First Trailer
The Japanese version of the trailer, identical barring the Limited Edition info, is accessible here.
Note that this week’s Famitsu magazine, out now, also included details on Atelier Ryza 2. If time permits we’ll be covering that soon via a separate article.
Atelier Ryza is the highest selling game of the franchise, topping 420,000 copies shipped worldwide. I explained my viewpoint on the matter if you’re interested. Ryza could be back as the protagonist in this sequel, a first in the series, because of her Zettai Ryouiki’s popularity, but I believe it’s more likely Gust planned to make this whole new trilogy about Ryza from the beginning.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy will be launching worldwide next winter on PS4, Switch, PC via Steam.
