Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have released new information, video, and screenshots of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout introducing Gathering Synthesis.
Get the details below.
■ Gathering Synthesis
In this game, even gathering fields can be synthesized through alchemy.
“Gathering Synthesis” is a new system that allows you to synthesize your own gathering fields.
There are a great variety of fields you can synthesize with dedicated bottles.
By using different raw materials, you can freely change what type of field it is, what items you can obtain, and what monsters you can encounter.
—A synthesized “Soapwort Greenland.”
—By adding in some “Plant Extract”… it will become a mysterious forest field!
—Or by adding in some “Polishing Agent”… it will become a historic ruins field!
—Or by adding in some “Flam,” it will become a volcano field flowing with lava!
Experiment to create fields of your very own!
By performing Gathering Synthesis, a four-character password will be issued as a piece of information for that bottle. By sharing that password, you can share the field you created with other players.
Players that receive the password can enter it from the “Create from Recipe” option in the “Gathering Synthesis” menu to synthesize if Ryza’s gathering field knowledge is sufficient enough (if she has enough bottles). Share your gathering fields with friends and other alchemists via social media!
—Share the passwords of the bottles you have completed.
—Other players can input the passwords you share with them.
—And then visit the gathering field you created!
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on September 26 in Japan, and for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam on October 29 in North America and November 1 in Europe.
