While the US Nintendo Direct Mini was quite underwhelming, the Nintendo Japan Mini Direct seemed to be filled with lots of games. One specifically was the announcement of Atelier Ryza 2, which is a direct sequel to the original game.
It’s slightly weird that Nintendo dropped the news ahead of the official teaser being released on July 29 by publisher Koei Tecmo. Hopefully the trailer revealed on July 29 will be a different trailer all together. Check out the announcement trailer below:
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is a direct sequel to the best-selling Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, a worldwide smash hit that has already shipped over 420,000 copies to date. In this latest entry in the Atelier series, Ryza makes her triumphant return as the protagonist, making franchise history as the first character to take on the hero role in two successive titles.
The new game was first revealed during July’s Nintendo Direct Mini, giving fans their first glimpse into Ryza’s upcoming quest. The game’s teaser site also went live during the official reveal, with more details and the official website launch set to go live on the 29th July 2020.
