By 9:22 AM

New gameplay details for upcoming title, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout has been unveiled by KOEI TECMO America and GUST Studios.

Aspiring alchemists will find a revamped battle system as they set out on their journey with teenage tomboy Ryza and her mischievous group of friends, along with being able to obtain special new gathering locations to explore and share.

In Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, players can obtain special bottles, which can be combined with other items in the game’s synthesis system to create an abundance of new gathering locations overflowing with raw materials. Depending on which ingredients are used in the synthesis process, the environment can drastically change.

For example: Plant Essence can create a fantastical forest area; while a Bomb can create a dangerous volcanic field overflowing with lava. Once the environment is created, a unique four-character password is attached to the area, which can then be shown off and shared with friends or across social media - enabling other gamers to explore the exact same area.

Inhabiting these breathtaking locations are creatures and enemies Ryza and her friends will need to fight. Using a newly revamped Real-Time Tactical Battle system, battles will now progress even while character actions are being chosen.

Throughout battle, party members will also be able to give Action Orders to other members of their party. If the order is followed, the character which gave it will perform a follow-up attack with a powerful skill – and this ability does not consume any AP; allowing players to use them at will to deliver strong blows to help defeat even the most ruthless of enemies.

To showcase these exciting new gameplay features, KOEI TECMO America released a new trailer, see below.
