Koei Tecmo has announced Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness And The Secret Hideout will soon restock on Amazon. While the game was previously released on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, the latter has become increasingly difficult to find. Currently, the Amazon page is only offering the game through third-party sellers for inflated prices.
Soon, players who want to own the physical edition of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness And The Secret Hideout will get the opportunity to do so at a more reasonable price. The store page is the same for both console versions of the game. PlayStation 4 owners can still pick up the physical version of the game at retail price.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness And The Secret Hideout is available digitally on PC via Steam and console. The game became the fastest and highest-selling title in the Atelier series so far, so it’s no surprise many fans want to own the physical edition.
The Amazon version of the game is not a collector’s edition. Players new to the game will receive the game cartridge and the physical case with the original art for the game. After inserting the cartridge, players will still have to download any necessary updates and then purchase any DLC.

However, the physical release of the first Atelier Ryza game comes at the perfect time. With the upcoming release of the second game, Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy, this Winter, players can learn more about Ryza’s world and the characters in it.
Atelier Ryza stars a young girl named Ryza who lives on an island. One Summer, she decided to go on a grand adventure with some of her friends. Together, they decide to investigate a mysterious island. Together, they go on an unforgettable journey. The game contained multiple DLC, including side stories, to get to know Ryza’s friends better.
The upcoming game is a direct sequel of the first. The game takes place three years after the adventure, but Ryza is the only one who still lives on the island. She receives a message from a friend to visit the royal capital, Ashra-am Baird. This quest leads to reuniting with old friends, meeting new companions, and a brand new adventure.
Based on the low stock of the physical Nintendo Switch edition of the first game, fans of Atelier Ryza should preorder the physical edition of the sequel as soon as possible. While Atelier Ryza 2 isn’t available on Amazon yet, players can find it on other retailers such as GameStop, including the Early Purchase DLC Bonus for the Summer Fashion Costume Set. Owners of the previous game will also gain immediate access to the outfits from the first game.
Koei Tecmo has not yet announced when the Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness And The Secret Hideout Nintendo Switch restocks will occur, but the Amazon store page states October 30.
