Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key PS5 PS4 PlayStation

The awkwardly named but undeniably adorable Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key has been delayed. Originally slated for a February launch, the charming JRPG will now mix things up on 24th March.

The game's producer Junzo Hosoi announced the delay, stating that "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 possible experience in this culmination of Ryza and her friends’ adventures."

The Atelier Ryza series has, to date, sold a respectable 1.3 million copies, no small feat for a niche JRPG franchise. Itself a subset of the larger Atelier series, the games set in the Ryza series follow the titular alchemist on her various journeys.

Beginning with Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout and continuing in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, the series is more light-hearted than typical JRPG fare, but features fairly sold combat mechanics and an extremely addictive alchemy mechanic, which allows you to craft all manner of items.
