Koei Tecmo and Gust are preparing for the release of Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and The Secret Fairy this Winter. The game will first launch in Japan this December, followed by the international release in January 2020.
Recently, Koei Tecmo revealed the special Limited Edition version of Atelier Ryza 2. The Limited Edition will be available for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch through NIS America. The pre-orders have already sold out once and have been restocked. Fans who are thinking about picking up the Limited Edition should act fast before they’re sold out for good.
Atelier Ryza 2’s Limited Edition versions with both come with the same bonus items. The only difference is the platform for the game, which hasn’t yet revealed its box art. They include several Japanese imported items, as well.

The physical bonus items include an art book entitled “Tao’s Research Notebook,” a B2-sized cloth poster with original artwork, a mini-acrylic keychain charm of Ryza, a set of two “Key to the Ruins File and Character File” clear file folders, and an early access code for Ryza’s “Sonnet of Dawn” Costume all packaged inside of a premium collector’s box.
As an added bonus, Koei Tecmo is offering two more digital pre-order bonus items for all physical release versions. The pre-order includes a digital code for “Beware of Puni!” and “Blue Puni Costume” t-shirts for Ryza. The costumes change the color of Ryza’s beret and shoes to match the t-shirt color. Preorder retailers include NIS America, Gamestop, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and EBC.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy is a direct sequel of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout. For the first time in the Atelier series, the protagonist will come back to star in a second game.
The sequel takes place three years after the events of the first game. Ryza is called to the royal capital, Ashra-am Baird. She is given the opportunity to explore the ruins but also reconnect with old friends.
Atelier Ryza 2 will also have a digital edition plus a standard physical release for those who miss out on the Limited Collector’s Edition.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy launches on January 26, 2021, for the PlayStation 4 and 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The Limited Edition is expected to begin shipping in January.
