    Collection


    In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Ryza departs her peaceful hometown of Kurken Island to visit the bustling Royal Capital of Ashra-am Baird, setting up her own atelier shop while exploring the ancient ruins of the land. To uncover the mysteries that lurk within the ruins, Ryza will need to traverse her environment in entirely new ways -- swinging, climbing, crawling, and even squeezing her way past a variety of obstacles. While some of these abilities may come easy to her, she'll need the help of the mystical Emerald Band' to allow her to swing across treacherous gaps, while the remarkable Air Drops' allow her to dive underwater as Ryza looks to uncover areas with a wealth of materials perfect for synthesis.

    Synthesis

    Synthesis is a key part of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, as it allows Ryza to take the raw materials she finds in the field and craft them into incredibly useful items for battle, gathering and exploration. The Linkage Synthesis' system from Atelier Ryza has evolved with greater depth, enabling players to simply fill the Material Loops with the required ingredients to create everything from weapons and tools to medicine. In addition, the newly introduced Essence' feature now allows players to alter the elemental trait of an item during synthesis, and by altering the essence of a Material Loop the final item can take on brand-new qualities. The Evolution Link takes things a step further, as players will now be able to combine two fully synthesized items together and, depending on the items thrown into the mix, might uncover an extraordinary new item.























    Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is set to release for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch on December 3 in Japan for 8,580 yen. The PC version will release in January 2021. The game is also planned to release in the West this Winter for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
