With Atelier Ryza 3, Gust tapped Reche, who formerly appeared as Chelly with EGOIST, to perform the opening theme song “That Summer Hideout” and Suis to sing the ending music "Travelers." Siliconera got a chance hear both singers' thoughts on the experience and game.
Jenni Lada: How did you feel when you found out your song and music would be featured in Atelier Ryza 3?
Reche: As I was still in the early stages of my solo career, wondering if I was well-known even among my fans, I was surprised and happy to be offered this opportunity. It was one of my dreams to sing the theme song for a game.
Suis: For me, summer adventures are a strongly ingrained theme, so I was thrilled at the opportunity to resonate in Ryza's world!
How much backstory and information were you given ahead of time?
Reche: The synopsis of the story, or any other core part of the story, was not shared with me. So I recorded the song while imagining the story from the lyrics I was given.
Suis: I knew it was a summer story, a story about boys and girls growing up, and it had some alchemy. I didn't get to the play the game before recording, so after I finished recording I've been relaxing and enjoying the world of Ryza.
