Today the North American arm of Koei Tecmo posted a teaser trailer for Atelier Ryza: The Queen of Everlasting Darkness and the Secret Hideaway.
While the video does not actually announce the western release or even include the title of the game, this must be the most obvious tease ever, considering that it’s exactly the same teaser used by the Japanese arm of the company to introduce the game.
The trailer mentions news about an “upcoming title” on June 27, and it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll get information on a western release then.
Atelier Ryza: The Queen of Everlasting Darkness and the Secret Hideaway is a brand new Atelier game set for release in Japan for PS4 and Switch on September 26, while a Steam launch has also been announced without a date. Considering precedents, that’ll probably come at the same time as the western release.
It comes with brand new visuals, new protagonists, and a new worldview, on top of new mechanics for combat and alchemy. It appears to be a fresh start for the series.
