e Koei Tecmo and Gust released a new Atelier Ryza 3 patch on April 3, 2023, addressing a depth of field issue reported across all platforms. This update also fixes some issues related to textures and icons in certain circumstances. Moreover, Koei Tecmo stated later updates will bring additional graphics options.
This new patch aims to fix a depth of field issue that made any element in the distance appear heavily blurred from the player’s perspective. This adjustment will also make the depth of field weaker for the entire game. However, more detailed graphics options for all platforms will be added in later updates as previously announced.
That isn’t the only change. The patch also fixes a bug that caused the water surface textures to disappear and improves the response time when connecting normal and skill attacks. In terms of platform-specific changes, the copyright notice size was adjusted for PS4 and PS5 screenshots. With the Steam version, an issue affecting key icons while using a 4k monitor was fixed as well.
The previous patch also fixed display issues and bugs across all platforms. Most notably, they fixed an error in which a quest-related item would not appear when the expected, bringing all progress in the game to a halt.
Atelier Ryza 3 is available on the PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC, and the patch update fixing the depth of field issue is already up for all platforms.
