Koei Tecmo Taiwan held a live stream on November 29, 2020, showing off some new Atelier Ryza 2 gameplay. Several key figures for the game attended, including the official cosplayer for Ryza. Atelier Ryza 2 ~Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy~ will release in Japan on December 3, 2020. Western releases will follow in late January.
Koei Tecmo Taiwan had a stacked panel presenting Atelier Ryza 2 gameplay in traditional Chinese for the Taiwanese market. The panel introduced the game, answered some basic Q & A, and showed new gameplay and the traditional Chinese version for Atelier Ryza 2. For those interested in just the game running in-engine, the footage begins around the 50-minute mark.
The following key people attended:
- Yuri Noguchi (Voice Actress for Ryza)
- Toridamono (Character Designer for the Atelier Ryza series)
- Moe Iori (Official Cosplayer for Ryza)
- Junzo Hosoi (Producer of the Atelier Ryza series)
With the Japanese release of Atelier Ryza 2 just around the corner, now is a perfect time to catch up on the game’s additional systems. The game will feature an enhanced photo mode, Puni raising, and atelier decorating, too. Those who’d like a refresher (or haven’t played the first game) can check out the sequel’s prologue movie, which recaps the events in the first game. We sure do recommend you play the first game, though.
Atelier Ryza 2 ~Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy~ will release in Japan on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 (digital-only), and PlayStation 4 on December 3, 2020. It will release in North America on January 26, 2021 and in PAL on January 29, 2021. A PC version (via Steam) will launch on January 26, 2021.
