Can you play Atelier Ryza 2 before the first game

Atelier Ryza 2 is set a few years after Atelier Ryza and has returning characters including the same protagonist so it is recommended to play the first game before. If you’ve already played Atelier Ryza, you will get more out of the experience when you see how certain characters have changed over the years. Atelier Ryza is the best modern entry point into the Atelier series.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends &  the Secret Fairy releases beginning January 26 in the West for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
