If you’re looking for more Atelier Ryza 2 coverage, you are in the right place. Koei Tecmo dropped a new trailer on YouTube today, and it shows off some of the game’s other features beyond the alchemy and combat we’ve seen in other videos. Photo mode is the first feature shown, and it has a lot of functionality. You will be able to pick your characters, pose them, change their expression, and apply filters among other options. Frames are shown, but they are coming in a later update.

Puni Companions have been mentioned in prior videos, but we see it action here. Ryza chooses what to feed the little blob, and the puni changes color. Later, it returns with items such as minerals or a whole goat. That last one was a surprise.

Finally, the trailer shows Ryza decorating her atelier. There is a variety of furniture that can be placed in the room, but it does seem to be somewhat limited. Although the variety of items looks good, there appear to be fixed locations where you can place something. This isn’t a problem, and it will let you add a personal touch to your atelier.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy will release on January 26th in North America and January 29th in Europe.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
