Fresh off its celebrated showcase at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show (TGS) where Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout was selected by TGS visitors and the Japan Game Awards as a Future Division Award winner; KOEI TECMO America announced a wealth of new information for gamers looking to order the special Digital Deluxe Edition before the game launches in North America on October 29, 2019.
Pre-orders for Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout are now available on PC via Steam, through the PlayStation Store, and the Nintendo eShop; and for those looking to add even more magic to their Ryza experience, the Digital Deluxe Edition delivers everything on a budding alchemist’s wish list. Fans who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition will receive Costume sets “Another Fashion” and “Summer Style”, adding 15 new clothing options from Lent’s Gothic Wolf look to Tao’s Island Explorer gear. In addition, gamers will also be rewarded with special “Pixie Forest” and “Lakeside Hideout” items to be used in remodeling their secret hideouts. These items come with special effects like raising certain allies’ abilities during the rain.
On top of that, gamers will also receive two special gathering items to help make earlier portions of Ryza’s journey easier; including special wind shoes to help increase movement speed, and a bigger knapsack to increase item gathering capacity. Throw in 100,000 gems that can be used for rebuilding, and the Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout Digital Deluxe Edition is a must-have for Atelier fans looking to jump into the brand new storyline arc. Additionally, fans who purchase any version of the game before November 12, 2019 will receive the early purchase bonus of Ryza’s Summer Adventure costume.
But that’s not all the Atelier news on KOEI TECMO America’s agenda, as they also officially announced the special release of the Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam. The games: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk DX; Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky DX; and Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea DX will be playable for the first time on current consoles, taking advantage of the improved system hardware to deliver high-resolution graphics and smoother gameplay. The heroes of each adventure battle foes and learn the secrets of synthesis and alchemy in an effort to learn the true mystery behind “The Dusk”. The games also include a large number of special elements and DLC from the Dusk series’ history; including extra costumes and accessories, numerous boss monsters, and the ability for additional characters to take part in battle.
