Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is a game that I was kind of looking forward to. However, it appears that the PC version will not be that optimized for our platform. According to early reports, the game does not support mouse on the PC.
Not only that, but the game does not display proper keyboard keys on screen. Instead, it will display the Xbox gamepad buttons and nothing more. By using its keyboard configuration tool, PC gamers will then simply have to figure out which key does what.
This is a step backwards for KOEI Tecmo as both Nioh and Dynasty Warriors 9 at least supported the mouse. Furthermore, Attack on Titan 2 was a pretty solid PC product that even displayed proper keyboard keys. I seriously don’t know why KOEI Tecmo dropped the ball with Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout will come out on October 29th and I strongly suggest avoiding it unless you use a gamepad. Honestly, it’s really disappointing witnessing PC games in 2019 lack such basic features. Seriously KOEI, what the hell?
