Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

Here’s the set of details for Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, this time focusing on Ryza’s quest and her Exploration Diary:

In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Ryza embarks on a quest to explore the mysterious ruins that lay dormant around the Royal Capital in the hopes of uncovering the truth behind the bygone legends of the land. These ruins offer players unique puzzles to overcome, while discoveries made in the ruins unlock exciting new field actions, including the ability to ride monsters across the land! Ryza will have to rely on her exploration skills, and her capable companions, to guide her way to the ruins and spring her investigation into action.

Throughout Ryza’s adventure, her Exploration Diary will be pivotal when venturing throughout the various ruins, as it organizes all of the player’s discoveries, allowing them to form their own theories and solve every mystery they encounter. As they explore every inch of ruins and complete their Research List while collecting ‘Ruin Fragments’ and “Memory Fragments”, they will unlock clues which will then be stored in the diary. Uncovering clues can be challenging, but thanks to the incredibly useful ‘Compass of Recollection’, players will be able to evoke memories from the ruins that allows them to see the general location of where Ruin Fragments are located. By successfully piecing together the clues, the mysteries of the ruins will become clearer. By solving these puzzles, players will be able to unlock special alchemy recipes to aid them on their quest, along with helping Ryza grow.

Luckily for our heroine, Ryza will not be alone as she explores the mysterious ruins! Joining her party is her old childhood friend, Lent Marslink. After their adventures on Kurken Island, Lent set off on a journey to improve his skills in combat. Over the years, his once cheerful demeanor has faded, and he’s not happy to reunite with his friends.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy (Switch) comes out on December 3rd in Japan, and in January in Europe and North America.
