KOEI TECMO Europe and GUST Studios have detailed the intricate new Secret Hideout system for their upcoming JRPG Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. As the budding alchemist Ryza and her mischievous group of friends set out in search for adventure, they’ll be faced with a wealth of challenges they must overcome. A series of circumstances leads the group into the depths of the mysterious Sunken Mine, a deep and dark dried-up environment that’s home to something potentially evil — a gate leading to another world.
To prepare for their harrowing journey to save their homeland from whatever is lurking in this far off land, Ryza and her friends create a secret hideout as their new base of operations. As a budding young alchemist Ryza will have to ensure she diligently practices synthesising between her travels — the higher her alchemy level the more useful her items will be for future adventures. In addition, Players are also able to use the exciting new Gathering Synthesis system from the hideout to create new lands to explore; they can use Forging to create new weaponry perfect for tougher foes; and Item Duplication, to easily craft a variety of consumable items for their journey.
Ryza’s Secret Hideout wouldn’t be complete if it wasn’t personalised. Players will be able to remodel and customize many features of their hideout to reflect their personality by finding various items out in the world and bringing them back to base. Ryza and her team will receive raised stats depending on how the base is remodelled, and these be utilised strategically to grant useful stat boosts in the field during battle. Not all of these features will be available straight away though – as players experience more of the game’s gripping narrative they’ll unlock these useful abilities to push them forward on their quest.
With one month left until the launch of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, KOEI TECMO Europe released an enchanting new trailer – fresh from Tokyo Game Show 2019 – giving a deep look at the game’s narrative.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is slated to launch on the 1st November 2019 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam; for more information be sure to check out our official website https://www.koeitecmoeurope.com/ryza/
