With a series as visually stunning as Atelier Ryza, it’s no surprise that both games received official art books. Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout Official Visual Collection and Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy Official Visual Collection were originally published in Japan by Kadokawa. Now, UDON Entertainment has wonderful news for fans overseas, as fully translated versions of both books will arrive in the West in Spring 2023.

 

 

Each book contains artwork and character illustrations by designer Toridamono, as well as “rare and little-seen artworks” and “some very surprising bonus materials.” They also include exclusive interviews with Toridamono and Executive Producer Junzo Hosoi.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout and Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy are both available now on Nintendo Switch. Last year, both Toridamano and Hosoi dropped hints and showed enthusiasm for a third game in the series.
