Atelier Ryza 3 Figure Ad in Japan Not-so-Subtly Blocks Her “Assets”

An advertisement spotted in Akihabara, Japan, by user @fujiyamax highlights a recently announced figure by Wonderful Works for the upcoming Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & The Secret Key, depicting the protagonist in this conclusion to the trilogy.

However, what makes this advertisement somewhat humorous is how it, not-so-subtly, blocks Ryza’s prominent thighs. The original poster states, “This Ryza ad, the “considerations” are really amazing,” and I quite agree. Based on this advertisement, the popularity of Ryza’s assets was too enticing to present entirely unimpeded, even though the game’s key art is shown.

This might be the first time I’ve ever seen a character’s thighs blocked for what I’m assuming is sexual appeal. It’s quite interesting, in all honesty.

Regardless, you can view the tweet sharing this advertisement below:

Lead writer Yashichiro Takahashi has returned to write this third entry. Taking place a year after Ryza 2, the titular protagonist and her friends discover newly appearing islands, called the Kark Isles, near their home of Kurken Island. The party decides to investigate these mysterious happenings but ends up finding a gate within some ruins, with a voice wanting to lead Ryza to the Code of the Universe.

Four regions will be explorable in an open field, all boasting seamless transitions. Keys will also be found and created; they all have unique effects for synthesis, battle, and exploration. Moreover, a total of 11 party members are confirmed.

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.
