"Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist Of The End & The Secret Key features real-time tactical battles with effects and presentation that are greatly enhanced from previous titles in the series. Players can select up to five battle members among the 11 party members and fight together as one team! A new system that transitions between battles, and the use of keys speeds up each fight and makes for a more seamless experience. Three battle members will be positioned up front with two in the rear, with players having the ability to use and swap out various skills. Some powerful sills will be activated in response to action orders from friends, while powerful keys can be equipped and used in battles to help crush the most grueling enemies. Using a key strengthens a character for a certain period of time, while also dropping the waiting time for all actions to zero, enabling you to use skills and attacks continuously!

Keys can also be used during the game's evolved synthesis system in order to help Ryza create more powerful items than ever before. By inserting materials into a material ring, Ryza will be able to synthesize special items; then by using a key to improve the level of the recipe, Ryza will be able to not only improve the quality of the item, she will be able to increase the number of creations! Through the new "Link Morph" ability, Ryza will be able to add certain effects to items that could not be added before, while some items will feature a "super trait," enabling the creation of even stronger items! Thanks to all of these new features, Ryza will be able to create extremely specialized items, the likes of which she hasn't seen before."
