Atelier Ryza 3 Review Thread


The nicest person on this forum

Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is a fantastic game that finally manages to show off the development team’s capabilities when they’re given extra time, a bigger budget, and a little bit of breathing room. Every aspect of the project benefits from polish, and as the final game in the Secret series, Atelier Ryza 3 is the perfect send-off. The callbacks and relationships from the previous games grow and evolve, and it’s exciting to see these beloved characters find their place in the ever-expanding world. While I often say the latest Atelier game is the best Atelier game, it’s always true. This time, Gust have outdone themselves, and I simply cannot wait to see how they top this highly polished gem of a game. 92

Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key ends Ryza's three-game run on a high note, serving up a heady mix of exploration, crafting and combat that benefits greatly from a narrative arc that's had time to develop and grow. The new key mechanics add more depth to combat, synthesis and exploration, the world is more seamless and diverse than ever before and the whole thing comes together to form a satisfying end for this hugely popular protagonist. We did have some issues with small text, no English dub and a little fussiness in how information is relayed, but overall this is Gust's finest adventure to date and a JRPG experience that long-term fans and newcomers alike will find plenty to delight in. 9

Atelier Ryza 3: The Alchemist of the End and the Secret Key is a joyous sequel to one of my favourite games in the series. The loop of gathering materials, crafting items and beating stronger baddies is endlessly compelling, and the pace of the game is just fantastic. The Switch version of the game does struggle with some technical issues, but they can’t hold back the pure charm of Ryza and the gang. 8

Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is the biggest Atelier game to date. Ryza and her friends are just as charming as ever and this is a fantastic way to end the trilogy. The vibrant open-world areas are a joy to explore, and the slick combat and engaging alchemy system will keep you entertained throughout. 7

This game is not "mainstream" enough, so I dont expect most big gaming sites review game.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
I've only ever played the first two Ryza games in the Atelier series, but they're both really good and oozing with charm. I'm very much looking forward to playing this one too.


We were browsing the ps catalog and I tried one of these games. Shallie. I almost died of cute poisening. Could not go on.
