Atelier Ryza (2020) is an excellent game in the Atelier series that does everything well. Gust doesn’t take many risks with Ryza. It’s a back-to-basics title, which makes it a fantastic first game for an Atelier newcomer. Ryza is great for its straightforward story, game mechanics, and the game’s status as the first in a new Atelier sub-series.
It doesn’t matter what Atelier game you start with. You play one Atelier game; you play them all.
But, if you were to start somewhere, I recommend the latest Atelier game to date, Atelier Sophie 2 (released February 2022).
See this article for all Atelier games that are on the Switch as of March 2022, sorted by the most recently released to the oldest titles.
The Atelier game is a quality, classic JRPG series with a crafting system that has been honed over time to remain consistently engaging and fun. Atelier games come out every year since 2001 and continue to improve their systems.
