Today Koei Tecmo released a large batch of new screenshots of the upcoming JRPG from Gust Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key.
We’re introduced to three new playable characters starting with Federica Lamberti, deputy head of the Artisans’ Guild of Sardonica, the city of crafters.
She is a kind young woman who always stands by her principles and behaves politely. However, she is also strong, methodical and persistent. Her dream is to reconcile the two factions that divide her town.
Dian Farrell is a young warrior who hates the tradition of his town and loves the chance to get away, if only for a little while. He is a natural hunter and while he gives the impression of being a bit rough, he is actually a good listener and good-natured.
Kala Ideas is a living witness of history who knows about “the great order of all things”. Although she looks like a young lady, she is actually over a thousand years old. She is part of the Oren clan and her clan is a bit of a legend even among her own people.
However, she often leaves her village to wander. She is cheerful and scandalous, but with a mysterious dignity that betrays her age.
In addition to the new characters, we can see the ability to interact with animals and even ride them. Some will guide you to treasure chests and yes, you can pet the dog.
The ability to discover landmarks allows for fast travel, and you can even find hidden areas. There are even random missions that you can encounter at different times.
The last four screenshots showcase the means of transit, including ziplining, rock climbing, waterfall climbing, and underwater swimming.
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key launches for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on February 24, 2023.
I actually played a demo of the game at the Tokyo Game Show and you can enjoy my hands-on preview with the first image of this JRPG.
If you want to see and learn more, you can enjoy the initial reveal, another trailer, several screenshots and early details, a third trailer focusing on Bos, and a look at gameplay.
