Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key features real-time tactical battles with effects and presentation vastly improved over prior entries in the series. Players may pick up to five fighters from their 11 party members to fight as one unit.
There will also be a new system in Atelier Ryza 3 that allows transitions between battles and the usage of keys accelerates each combat and makes the experience more seamless. Three fighters will be positioned in the front and two in the back, with players able to employ and switch out various skills. Some strong skills are triggered in response to action commands from allies, while powerful keys may be equipped and utilized in combat to aid destroy the most formidable enemies.
The use of a key strengthens a character for a period of time and reduces the waiting time for all actions to zero, allowing for continuous use of abilities and attacks. Keys may also be employed throughout the game’s developed synthesis system to assist Ryza to construct even stronger items. Ryza will be able to create extraordinary goods by entering materials into a material ring, and by using a key to boost the level of the recipe, she will be able to not only enhance the quality of the item but also increase the number of creations.
Through the new “Link Morph” ability, Ryza will be able to add effects to items that were previously inaccessible, while other items will include a “super trait” that will allow for the development of even stronger items.
Koei Tecmo America is also offering a delightful new Premium Box of Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key, exclusively available through the NISA Online Store.
