Atelier Ryza

Debate over the thickness of female thighs aside, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout has proven to be quite a success for publisher Koei Tecmo.

The Japanese company has announced that the game has sold a whopping 350,000 units worldwide, which, according to Koei Tecmo, means that it's on course to become the best-selling entry in the entire Atelier series. The only game standing in its way is the 2015 title Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, which has sold 370,000 copies so far.

"Atelier Ryza lifts the series to new heights with a reinvigorated, newcomer-friendly alchemy system and an excellent combat overhaul," is what we said about the game in our review. "Gust has done a brilliant job of taking this long-running franchise and making it appeal to the mainstream more than ever here and, if you’ve ever been tempted to give the world of Atelier a try, this is a perfect jumping-on point."
