The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has shared a new illustration for Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & The Secret Key depicting the titular protagonist and Bos, a new party member. In addition, the game’s development is confirmed to be 70% complete, though specifics regarding their processes were not shared.
Keys were highlighted as items found by discovering landmarks and defeating enemies. They are used to unlock treasure chests and barriers, grant stat boosts in battle, and enhance the effects of items during synthesis. The game’s explorable world is also stated to be roughly six times larger than the first game’s environment.
New screenshots were shared, viewable below. Since these were cropped from Famitsu, the quality and resolution for some of these screenshots are low.
You can view the cropped new Ryza and Bos artwork below to prevent any copyright issues due to overlaying text. Alas, we can’t show her thighs, which, let me tell you, are quite prominent:
UPDATE: Actually, in hindsight, we figured we could at least show the thighs since they’re right below the overlayed text:
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & The Secret Key is releasing for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on February 24, 2023.
