Well, that was fast! The NIS America Online Store is sold out the North American Atelier Ryza 2 Limited Edition. Both the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions are now out of stock. There is no notice about whether or not a restock could be possible. Both product pages do have an option to leave an email address and be notified in case more copies do appear. According to the Koei Tecmo Europe storefront, both LEs appear to still be in stock. Update: As of 8:45pm CT, copies were once again in-stock.
This happened within a day of the Atelier Ryza 2 pre-orders opening. When Koei Tecmo announced the North American and European release dates, it also mentioned that North America’s limited edition and Europe’s premium box were both available to order.
Koei did offer a warning before the Atelier Ryza 2 Limited Edition copies sold out. It noted on Twitter when the Switch versions were at around 11-25% and the PS4 ones were at 51-75% on NISA’s stock meters.
As of 8:45pm CT on October 16, 2020, the games are back in stock again. At this time, the Nintendo Switch version’s stock meter said 26-50% were available. As for the PS4 version, 51-75% are available.
As a reminder, the North America and European collector’s editions are identical to the premium box that will be sold in Japan. This means you get the cloth poster, the acrylic Ryza charm, the two clear file folders, the Tao’s Research Notebook art book, and the Ryza Sonnet of Dawn costume DLC.
Atelier Ryza 2 will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in Japan on December 3, 2020. It will show up on consoles and the PC in North America on January 26, 2021. It will appear in Europe on January 29, 2021.
