Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have announced that Atelier Ryza 2 Lost Legends And The Secret Fairy is slated to release for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch on 3 December 2020 in Japan, as well as a PC release on Steam in January 2021.
However, the international version of the game has yet to receive a definitive release date, besides a generic winter 2020 release date.
Meanwhile, the Japanese official website for the game has been updated with additional information and screenshots for characters Tao Mongarten, Serri Glaus, and Bos Brunnen.
You can check them out below (via Gematsu):
Tao Mongarten (voiced by Junta Terashima)
According to his official description, Tao is Ryza’s childhood friend. He is studying abroad with Bos in the Royal capital, studying hard each day to become a scholar. He has grown quite tall over the past three years, and no longer has the appearance of a bullied child.
While he still enjoys reading in solitude, since there are so many things to see and get excited about in the Royal capital, he spends a lot more time outdoors than when he was living on the island.
Serri Glaus (voiced by Yukiyo Fujii)
Serri is a woman of the same Oren species as Ryza’s former companion Lila Decyrus. She is on a journey collecting various plant seeds for a specific purpose and offers to accompany Ryza and company to explore the ancient ruins.
She has a calm personality, and is fair and upright with anyone she meets, but is somewhat distant with Ryza for some reason.
Bos Brunnen (voiced by Yohei Azakami)
Bos is Ryza and Tao’s childhood friend. He no longer has any ill feelings towards Ryza and company and spends a lot of time with them, especially with Tao who is also studying in the Royal capital.
He is studying extra hard to become a suitable heir to the Brunnen name. He is still as foul-mouthed as ever.
Atelier Ryza 2 Lost Legends And The Secret Fairy was initially announced during the Nintendo Direct Mini in July 2020.
