Within a little over a month since its debut, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key sold over 300,000 units. This makes it the fastest game from the Secret subseries to break that milestone. Gust also stated that the team has been delighted to read through players’ thoughts on the game.
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key debuted on March 23, 2023 for Japan, with other countries getting the game on March 24. The sales figure takes into account all of the platforms that the game is on. As well, it calculates both physical and digital copies. Atelier Ryza 3 is the third and possibly final entry in the Secret subseries. As the game focuses on the theme of endings, it might be the last one in which Ryza is the protagonist. It plays very similar to other Atelier games, though it has the largest playable cast at eleven characters.
Junzo Hosoi is the producer of the game. Back in 2021, he conducted an interview with Siliconera about Atelier Ryza 2. During that interview, he stated that the possibility of Atelier Ryza 3 would depend on fan support. The existence of the game, as well as its strong starting sales, indicate the popularity of the Atelier Ryza series. The first game was the best-selling Atelier game, and the sequel sold over 150,000 units in its first week alone.
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam.
