Today Koei Tecmo announced that Gust’s popular JRPG Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout has passed another shipments milestone.
The game has shipped over 500,000 copies worldwide. The previous update was as of March 31, at 420,000. The game was already the highest-selling title of the franchise and now the gap is even wider.
In order to celebrate we get a brand new illustration via Twitter, on top of the announcements that pre-orders for the love-size statue have been extended to October 31.
Yes, you are reading it correctly. Koei Tecmo is planning to sell life-sized figures of Ryza herself in Japan, priced at 2,750,000 yen. That’s approximately $25,843 plus taxes.
The statues will be sold only if ten or more are pre-ordered. They’re going to be similar to the gorgeous one we saw at Tokyo Game Show 2019.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is currently available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can read our review to find out why it’s so popular.
A sequel titled Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is also coming for the same platforms. Japan will get it on PS4 and Switch on December 3 and PC in January 2021. If I was a betting man, my money would be on a January 2021 release for the west as well.
