Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is the newest entry in the Atelier series, and a direct sequel to the hit title Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. Ryza returns as the protagonist, making history as the series’ first character to star in two successive titles. Join Ryza and her friends as they take on an exciting new adventure.

《Main Features》

《Story Summary》
3 years have passed since Ryza’s secret grand adventure on Kurken Island.
Ryza, the only member of her group to remain on the island, receives a letter from her friend, along with a mysterious request. This inspires her to leave the island and venture out to the royal capital, Ashra-am Baird. However, Ryza is unaware that this will lead to the beginning of an imaginative new adventure involving the pursuit of the mysteries of the ruins surrounding the royal capital.

Currently Ryza 2 is scheduled for Winter 2020 for the West, so hopefully we will see a release date announced soon.
