We usually like to be the bearers of good news, but it is a fact that life is not always rosy. If you are a true alchemist, we are sorry to inform you that Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key, the new title from Gust and Koei Tecmo, has just announced that will suffer a delay of several weeks on its release date.
Atelier Ryza 3 will have to beg for an extra month for the sake of the fans

Producer Junzo Hosoi took the opportunity to put a message to the fans. That short text wasn’t too specific about the reason for the delay, but considering what it says, the writer of this writing thinks they ran into some last-minute bugs.
In addition to apologizing for this, Junzo stated that in order to give Ryza and her friends a dignified end, his team made the decision to put all the meat on the grill and go from a vast open world to improve the visual field, hence they want to use this extra month to put the finishing touches on Reisalin Stout’s latest venture. What do you think about it? We applaud that they made this decision, because today it is not exactly rare to see other developers releasing their products in a bad way and leaving the fixes for later (if they sell enough).
