This week will mark the launch of the 22nd chapter of the Atelier franchise with Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legend & the Secret Fairy. If the video game world promises to be fairly calm for the first half of the year, JRPG fans will not be left out. However, it is KOEI Tecmo and GUST Studios who are therefore setting off the ball this year and it will continue directly where the last episode concluded.
For those who did not play the first title starring Ryza, know that the series has really improved in terms of fighting. The gameplay is much more gripping and is moving in the right direction. What’s more, the game told us a story that was both deep and very emotional with a very flirtatious visual as well as a fantastic soundtrack. The characters are really endearing and they show a lot of personality.
Moreover, for this sequel, the list of characters is growing. Indeed, a new adorable and enigmatic creature named Fi will accompany our protagonist in his quest. Together they will attempt to uncover the secrets behind the ancient ruins and the truth behind the lost legends of the Royal Capital.
So Atelier Ryza 2 will be released in North America on January 26 on PS5, PS4, Switch and PC. Besides Atelier Ryza 2, Ys X Monstrum Nox and Trails of Cold Steel IV (on Switch) will arrive soon. In short, JRPG fans will have three big games to prepare for starting in 2021.
