Etrian Odyssey V: release dates for Europe, DLC schedule, launch edition unboxing, 3DS Theme

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth

If you’ve checked out our Upcoming Games page, you’ve probably noticed we list Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth as releasing on October 17th in Europe. This date originally came from the Nintendo eShop, and was confirmed by Atlus via a press release sent yesterday. But the thing is, the game has two release dates in Europe.

Here’s when it will be released:

  • digital: October 17th (same day as North America)
  • retail: November 3rd

It looks like Atlus decided to go and release the game digitally ahead of the retail version in order to avoid delaying it altogether.

Next: the DLC schedule, which is the same for Europe and North America (and yes, the FM Synth soundtrack is coming!):

October 17

  • New Explorers 1 ($1.99 / 1.99€): School Boy Uniform
  • New Explorers 2 ($1.99 / 1.99€): School Girl Uniform
  • New Explorers 3 ($1.99 / 1.99€): Lady’s Sweater

October 24

  • New Explorers 4 ($1.99 / 1.99€): Etrian Odyssey 1 Protector
  • New Explorers 5 ($1.99 / 1.99€): Etrian Odyssey 1 Medic
  • Wizardly Experience Quest ($1.99 / 1.99€): Adds a new, repayable quest and an accessory that grants 3x as much EXP gains
  • Wizardly Fortune Quest ($1.99 / 1.99€): Adds a new, repayable quest and an accessory that raises the enemy drop rate to 100%

October 31

  • New Explorers 6 ($1.99 / 1.99€): Etrian Odyssey 2 Gunner
  • FM Synth Arranged Sounds ($4.99 / 4.99€): Adds a music player function. Switch the game’s BGM by accessing the music player in the Options menu

Also, Atlus uploaded the usual unboxing video for the Launch Edition (North America), with a pretty neat twist this time around!

Here’s a reminder about the contents of that launch edition:

  • 24-Page Art Book – Beautiful character art and concept sketches by the illustrious Yuji Himukai cover the pages of this magnificent art book. The unique explorers that will fill up your party are a wonder to behold.
  • 6-Track Music CD – A grand journey is utterly droll without music, so get into the adventuring mindset with an enchanting soundtrack crafted by long-time series composer Yuzo Koshiro!
  • Outer Box – The Yggdrasil tree and eager adventurers adorn this colorful outer box which protects the precious treasures it holds within.

In Europe, there’s no Launch Edition, but pre-order and first-print copies do come with the artbook.

Finally, there’s one last thing… a free Nintendo 3DS Theme for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, which is already available from the Nintendo 3DS Theme Shop in North America, and is releasing on October 17th in Europe.

Here’s what it looks like:
