The Atelier Ryza franchise is branching out with a brand new anime all of its own taking on the very first entry in the "Secret" series, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout! Published by Koei Tecmo and developed by Gust, the first entry in this fan favorite Role Playing Game franchise launched across consoles back in 2019, and has done so well that two other sequel entries have released since then. But soon the video game franchise will be making the leap to a whole new medium with Atelier Ryza's anime adaptation now in the works for a release this year.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout has been announced for an official TV anime adaptation, and is currently scheduled to release some time during the Summer 2023 anime schedule. While a concrete release date has yet to be revealed, you can check out the debut teaser trailer for Atelier Ryza's anime in the video above and the special teaser poster visual below from Koei Tecmo's official Twitter account:
