How Long Does It Take To Beat Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout?

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is, according to the game's description, "the story of a girl and her friends who are about to become adults, discovering what is most important to them." It's a Koei Tecmo RPG, which means it's either your jam or it's not. If you want to play, though, you may have questions about the game's length.


How long does it take to beat Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout? Let's find out.

At press time, the website How Long to Beat only has two playthroughs recorded for the title. One player managed to complete the game's campaign in 17 hours and 40 minutes, which is actually fairly quick in the RPG world. And another completed a "Main + Extras" run, which is the main story plus a few side quests here and there, in 29 hours. We don't have numbers for a completionist run, but we imagine it could add one or two dozen extra hours of gameplay. That's not too shabby in terms of value.

And it looks like those of you who dive into Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout will be getting a fairly decent title. It currently sits at a Metacritic score of 79, with the website Video Chums stating, "Whether you're a fan of the series or just a JRPG enthusiast, you need to play this masterpiece." Vandal also had some nice things to say, adding, "It's still far from the big RPGs, but it's a step in the right direction and, also, a good entry to discover the series."


Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. This doesn't appear to be a graphically demanding title, so if you want to play this game on the go, you shouldn't be afraid to pick up the Nintendo Switch version. Otherwise, the ports on PC and PlayStation 4 should treat you just fine.
