New Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout update will add mouse support and graphics options

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout has just been released on the PC and as you may have noticed, we didn’t bother testing it. The reason behind this decision was the awful current state of the PC version. However, things are about to change as KOEI Tecmo announced a new update that will soon come out.

According to the team, this patch will adds graphics options and mouse support. The new graphics settings will be added to the game’s launcher. Using these settings, players can adjust it according to your PC environment.

On the other hand, players will be able to activate the “Allow mouse operation” option. As its name suggests, this option will enable camera operation with the mouse. Players will also be able to bind the mouse keys to their liking.

It will be interesting to see whether KOEI Tecmo will also implement proper keyboard and mouse on-screen prompts. Right now, the game only displays gamepad buttons/keys.
