New Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout update adds mouse options & graphics settings, and more

KOEI Tecmo has finally released a new patch that adds graphics settings and mouse options to Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. This patch also adds support to more aspect ratios, and fixes a bug that occurred at high frame rates.

Players can use the mouse to operate the camera, change the distance, and change gathering tools by using the mouse. They can also use the mouse scroll wheel to select items where list operations are needed such as on the main menu.

Unfortunately, it appears that the team has not added proper on-screen keyboard and mouse indicators. Or at least the changelog does not feature any indication for such a fix.

But anyway, as always Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
