Today, during a livestream from Japan, Gust and Koei Tecmo introduced the first actual gameplay of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout.
First of all, we get to see an extensive video showcasing plenty of gameplay.
This includes exploration of the world and a closer look at Ryza herself and some of the features of her 3D model (you’ll understand what I mean when you see it).
We also see the revamped alchemy system and plenty of gathering, on top of the first look at battle gameplay.
The second video below shows an event scene, while the third is a lovely trailer.
The rest of the videos shows a bunch of bonus costumes for Ryza including the “Summer Adventure” early purchase bonus, another included in the Premium Box, and a couple of t-shirts.
The game looks absolutely lovely, and we see a large variety in environment and lighting conditions. It certainly shows that the development team made an effort to renew the visuals of the series.
Lastly, the developers also showcased some lovely artwork showing Ryza and Claudia’s character design and outfits.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout releases in Japan for PS4 and Switch on September 26. Afterward, it’ll launch in North America on October 29 and in Europe on November 1 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
