Atelier is a long-running JRPG series about alchemists exploring the world where item creation plays a major role mechanically and in helping other characters in the story. Ryza is the 21st entry in the series and has sold fantastically in recent years. It’s also the first game in the series to receive a direct sequel in over a decade.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy is slated for release this Winter in 2021.
