The latest main entry in Gust’s Atelier series follows Reisalyn “Ryza” Stout, a tomboyish girl with a strong sense of justice, whose world is turned upside down following an unexpected encounter. The scenario is co-written by Yashichiro Takahashi, a novelist best known for his Shakugan no Shana series, and features summer memories as a theme.
Compared to its predecessors, Atelier Ryza brings a significant graphical overhaul with more realistic visuals, and deepens the gathering, synthesis, and battle mechanics. The titular Secret Hideout (Ryza’s atelier) can be remodeled and customized floor to roof.
