Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy is a direct sequel of the previous game Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout. This is the second game starring Ryza, which is a first for the Atelier series.
In Atelier Ryza 2, Ryza is the only member of her group that remained on Kurken Island. Three years have passed since the events of the first game, and the friends have all gone their separate ways. One day, Ryza receives a letter from a friend, asking her to visit the royal capital of Ashra-am Baird.
Ryza will not only explore a brand new place but learn more about the mysterious ruins in the capital. Many of the characters from the last game will appear again, but some have gone through personality and physical changes. Ryza will also make new friends along the way, including the newly revealed character Patricia.
Those who preorder Atelier Ryza 2 will receive the Summer Fashion Costume Set for free. The set will be sold at a later date, but this is players’ opportunity to pick it up for free.
Anyone who has save data from the previous Atelier Ryza game will receive the Classic Costume Set for free. The characters will still have their new Atelier Ryza 2 physical changes but wear their Atelier Ryza 1 clothing.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy launches in North America this Winter.
