KOEI TECMO Europe and GUST Studios unveiled exciting new gameplay details to their upcoming title Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. Not only will aspiring alchemists find a revamped battle system as they set out on their journey with teenage tomboy Ryza and her mischievous group of friends, but they will also be able to obtain special new gathering locations to explore and share.
their search for adventure, Ryza and her party will discover exotic new
locations – including those they’ve made themselves. In Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout
players can obtain special bottles, which can be combined with other
items in the game’s synthesis system to create an abundance of new
gathering locations overflowing with raw materials. Depending on which
ingredients are used in the synthesis process, the environment can
drastically change. For example: Plant Essence can create a fantastical
forest area; while a Bomb can create a dangerous volcanic field
overflowing with lava. Once the environment is created, a unique
four-character password is attached to the area, which can then be shown
off and shared with friends or across social media – enabling other
gamers to explore the exact same area.
these breath-taking locations, though, are creatures and enemies Ryza
and her friends will need to fight. Using a newly revamped Real-Time
Tactical Battle system, battles will now progress even while character
actions are being chosen. In Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the
Secret Hideout, performing skills, critical attacks, or using abilities
outside of the player’s turn through the Quick Actions technique will
drain the player’s Action Points. These points are shared between all
party members, so it’s extremely important to use them strategically in
battle to gain the upper hand. As the AP gauge is filled, players will
also increase their in-battle level known as Tactics Level. The higher
the Tactics Level a party gains, the more powerful attacks they can use,
also enabling special combos to be performed.
battle, party members will also be able to give Action Orders to other
members of their party. These orders will ask the player to perform
specific actions such as “perform a physical attack.” If the order is
followed, the character which gave it will perform a follow-up attack
with a powerful skill – and this ability doesn’t consume any AP;
allowing players to use them at will to deliver strong blows to help
defeat even the most ruthless of enemies.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is slated to launch on the 1st November 2019 for the Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC via Steam®
