KOEI Tecmo America opened a teaser website for the game on Monday. The website will reveal more information about the game on July 29 at 11:00 a.m. EDT.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is a direct sequel to KOEI Tecmo Games' Gust brand's Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout (Ryza no Atelier ~Tokoyami no Joō to Himitsu no Kakurega~) game, which has shipped more than 420,000 copies to date.

KOEI Tecmo America describes the game's story:
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout begins an all-new storyline arc in GUST Studios' fan-favorite Atelier series. The beautiful role-playing game follows the exploits of teenage tomboy Ryza, who dreams of escaping her mundane village lifestyle, alongside her band of mischievous friends. One day, as they explore a forbidden island in search of adventure, they meet an elderly magician who will change their lives forever. After some convincing, the old man begins teaching Ryza the enchanting ways of alchemy; launching her on an adventure that will ultimately lead her on a quest to save her hometown from the mysterious and deadly darkness lurking beneath the surface.
KOEI Tecmo Games' Gust brand teased the game in May 2019 under the name "Gust New Project."
KOEI Tecmo America released Gust and KOEI Tecmo Games' Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack game collection for the PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam in January. The game shipped in Japan for the PS4 and Switch in December.
