Koei Tecmo updated Atelier Ryza 3 on all platforms, and the new patch adds a Legend Maximum Difficulty and a way to change the game’s background music (BGM). Both of these are free additions. All you need to do is update it on the PS4, PS5, Switch, or PC, and they’ll be available.

With regards to the Legend difficulty level in Atelier Ryza 3, Gust and Koei Tecmo didn’t explain how it will affect enemy strength and playable characters. However, it did remind players that once the patch is applied, they can change to it at any time. To switch, head to the options menu. Then, go to the Difficulty section under Game Settings. You can then select Legendary from there.

As for the BGM, you can find this option when Ryza visits her desk at one of her Ateliers in Atelier Ryza 3. The Diary menu, which also allows you to change characters’ outfits, now allows you to choose which music will be played. When the free Atelier Series Legacy BGM Pack appears, you can access its songs here. That is expect to launch by June 2023.
