Atelier Ryza 2 physical PS5 release in Japan canceled
Koei Tecmo and Gust previously revealed at TGS 2020 that Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy would be available on PlayStation 5 with a physical release in Japan. They have today announced that the Japanese physical PS5 release is now canceled due to 'various circumstances'. This means the PS5 release in Japan is also now digital-only, just like in the West.
When the Western release dates were announced last week, both the North American and European press releases noted that the PlayStation 5 version will be only available digitally. However, people who purchase the PS4 version of the game anywhere worldwide—both physically and digitally—will be able to obtain an upgrade to the PS5 version without any additional cost.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy will be released first for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in Japan on December 3. The western localization, along with a PC release via Steam, will be available in North America on January 26 and Europe on January 29, 2021.
