A Message from the Producer
We apologize for this delay to everyone who has been looking forward to the release of Atelier Ryza 3.
In order to make this game a fitting finale for Ryza and her friends, we have taken on challenges such adventuring in a vast open world and graphics that express charm of these characters to the fullest extent.
Our team will take this additional time to fine-tune the final touches so that we can deliver to all of you who have been following the series for the best possible experience in this culmination of Ryza and her friends’ adventures.
We are making the game even better to make it worth your wait, so we appreciate your patience for just a little bit more until the game’s release.
