Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key key artwork with the logo

If you were looking forward to diving into Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key this February 24th, I'm afraid you're out of luck. I say this because Keoi Tecmo have just announced that the release date has now been pushed back a full month - all the way to March 24th, 2023.

"We apologize for this delay to everyone who has been looking forward to the release of Atelier Ryza 3," reads the brief developer update. "In order to make this game a fitting finale for Ryza and her friends, we have taken on challenges such as adventuring in a vast open field and graphics that express the charm of these characters to the fullest extent."

"Our team will take this additional time to fine-tune the final touches so that we can deliver to all of you who have been following the series for the best best possible experience in this culmination of Ryza and her friend's adventures. We are making the game even better to make it worth your wait, so we appreciate your patience for a just little bit more until the game's release."

In order to help soften the blow, Koei Tecmo have also taken this opportunity to release the opening movie. So if you're wondering what exactly Atelier Ryza 3 is going to be all about, as well as what it'll even look like, you can find your answers in the trailer below. Have a little peek:

Should any further changes to the release date happen, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about Atelier Ryza 3 and its gameplay over at Steam. Enjoy!
