The last time we heard about how well the series was doing was in March, at 1.6 million copies shipped; this was just a week before the worldwide launch of the latest entry. In the past three months, the trilogy has shipped 400,000 copies, including a confirmed majority contribution from the newest entry, which reportedly shipped and digitally sold 300,000 copies as of April 27th.
The trilogy officially kicked off for us in North America in October 2019 with the Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, which launched in October 2019 for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. A follow-up was released less than two years with Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy in January 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. The latest entry, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key, launched on March 24th for PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch, which we got a review already up, if interested.
“Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is a testament to how far the series has come. While the series is gaining popularity in the West, it’s still an unrated RPG series that so many people are sleeping on. The cast is charming and filled with likable party members that help shape the trilogy’s closing chapter. Bigger and better than its predecessors, the callbacks to previous games come unexpectedly and deliver the payoff series fans deserve. Don’t skip out on Gust’s latest title,” Bobby said in our review.
