Gust and Koei Tecmo have announced a major milestone for their new title Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. The game has been out since October 2019 but is one of the fastest-selling Atelier titles.

According to Koei Tecmo’s Q3 sales reports, Atelier Ryza has sold 350,000 so far worldwide.

“The Main Character Is Ryza, An Ordinary Girl. Tired of boring village life, she escapes the village to gather with her good friends in a secret location to talk of their dreams and plan thrilling adventures. One day, the determined Ryza and company decide to head for the forbidden “island across the shore” as their first exploration trip. Together with the alchemist and other friends they meet there, they have a “summer adventure” that they will never forget.” states the official Steam store story description.

Artists from the series are celebrating the news with new artwork of the main protagonist, Ryza.

While Atelier Ryza is doing well, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, an earlier title, sold 370,000. Atelier Ryza is quickly selling, and will likely soon become the top seller in the series. In the tweet, the team behind the game mentioned they are confident Atelier Ryza will outsell Atelier Sophie in less than a year.

Previously, Koei Tecmo reported that Atelier Ryza had an excellent launch, with 150,000 copies sold. The team thanked fans around the world for their continued support.

Atelier Ryza continues to be updated with new content and fixes. Since launch, the game was updated with several character scenario stories, Photo Mode, and a soundtrack update with over 300 songs from the entire Atelier series. The game continues to receive patches for any issues players report.

Atelier Ryza is not only popular within its own game, but also in other media. The main character is appearing in several collaborations, which may explain the boost in recent game sales.

Atelier Ryza has also had collaborations with other Koei Tecmo games, such as Dead or Alive 6, DOA Xtreme Venus Vacation, and Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV. Good Smile Company is also releasing a Nendoroid figure of the heroine of the series.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
