Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key gameplay trailer details evolved synthesis and returning characters

Gust and Koei Tecmo have released a trailer and new details about the upcoming Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key. The new trailer showcases footage of the new playable characters of Frederica, Dian, and Kala, detailed back in October, in addition to more exploration and battle footage. In addition, the gameplay trailer shows that Empel, Lila, and Patricia will return to help Ryza on her newest quest.

In addition to the trailer, Gust has provided some general details about the gameplay showcase, including a new transition sequence for battles and an evolved synthesis system to create keys and other powerful items:

A 25th Anniversary title of the long beloved Atelier JRPG franchise, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key follows fan-favorite alchemist, Reisalin Stout, and her mischievous friends on their third summer adventure as they set off to investigate a group of mysterious islands that have suddenly appeared, adversely affecting the stability of their hometown, Kurken Island. While working to solve the mysteries of the new islands, Ryza reunites with some nostalgic old friends. It seems Ryza has asked the familiar faces of Empel and Lila to help in her investigation, but when Ryza reaches the village of Faurre where they are said to be staying, she finds out that her old friends are being held captive! As Ryza scrambles to save them, another familiar face shows up on the scene – Patricia – dazzling as always with her swordsmanship! Once Ryza and Patricia help free Empel and Lila, all three returning characters can be added to Ryza’s party as they continue to work together to uncover the truth behind this new threat to Kurken Island.

Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key features real-time tactical battles with effects and presentation that are greatly enhanced from previous titles in the series. Players can select up to five battle members among the 11 party members and fight together as one team! A new system that transitions between battles, and the use of keys speeds up each fight and makes for a more seamless experience. Three battle members will be positioned up front with two in the rear, with players having the ability to use and swap out various skills. Some powerful sills will be activated in response to action orders from friends, while powerful keys can be equipped and used in battles to help crush the most grueling enemies. Using a key strengthens a character for a certain period of time, while also dropping the waiting time for all actions to zero, enabling you to use skills and attacks continuously!

Keys can also be used during the game’s evolved synthesis system in order to help Ryza create more powerful items than ever before. By inserting materials into a material ring, Ryza will be able to synthesize special items, then by using a key to improve the level of the recipe, Ryza will be able to not only improve the quality of the item, she will be able to increase the number of creations! Through the new “Link Morph” ability, Ryza will be able to add certain effects to items that could not be added before, while some items will feature a “super trait”, enabling the creation of even stronger items! Thanks to all of these new features, Ryza will be able to create extremely specialized items, the likes of which she hasn’t seen before.
