Following the recent announcement that Atelier Ryza would feature a “Gathering Point Synthesis” system, it has been confirmed that players will be able to share the gathering points they create with others. 

After creating a gathering point, players will be able to share a four character password with other players in order to give them access.

Gust and Koei Tecmo updated the official Japanese website for Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout today. They added brief introductions, screenshots and artwork for three new chracters: Lila Decyrus, Kilo Shiness and Agatha Harmon (credit goes to Siliconera for the translation).

Lila Decyrus (voiced by Haruka Terui)

A female soldier who is shrouded in mystery. She arrives in Razenboden alongside Ampel. She’s an extremely skilled fighter and teaches Ryza and her friends the basics of combat. She’s calm and collected, but can come across as a little cold and blunt. It seems like her goal is to investigate some ruins with Ampel.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout will be released on Nintendo Switch on October 29 in North America and on November 1 in Europe.
