Earlier this month, Atlus released Etrian Odyssey X in Japan: a special title celebrating the entire Etrian Odyssey series, and the final entry on Nintendo 3DS (featuring the very best from the various games on Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS). Many fans were wondering whether it was too late for a localisation, but the answer is no! Etrian Odyssey X is coming to Europe and North America in February, as Etrian Odyssey Nexus. It will cost $39.99 / 39.99€ / £34.99.
Here’s a quick overview of the game:
A royal decree from Princess Persephone has prompted the gathering of the realm’s greatest explorers to the floating city of Maginia. Their goal-uncovering the mysteries of the archipelago of Lemuria, home to a great Yggdrasil Tree. Recruit explorers from 19 classes spanning the entire Etrian series, including the brand new “Hero” class, before setting out to Lemuria in search of treasure and glory!
This game features character designs by Yuji Himukai, monster designs by Shin Nagasawa, and music by Yuzo Koshiro. Fans will find many iconic representatives and locations from previous Etrian Odyssey games, complete with over 100 story-rich quests, the usual variable difficulty settings, optional accessibility features (like auto-mapping), and more. It’s basically THE definitive Etrian Odyssey game for long-time fans, but also a good entry-point for newcomers (since you don’t need to play the previous games).
Here’s the list of key features:
- The Definitive Etrian Odyssey Experience – With more classes, characters, gameplay systems, and labyrinths than any other game in the series, Etrian Odyssey Nexus is the ultimate dungeon-crawling adventure.
- Customize Your Perfect Exploration Party – Create and customize characters from 19 playable classes, then take on the dangerous creatures of Lemuria’s labyrinths with your perfect party!
- Both Newcomers and Veterans Welcome! – With the ability to swap between four distinct difficulty settings, auto-mapping settings, and a grand standalone story, there’s something for everyone from series newcomers to experienced veterans.
- A Love Letter to Etrian – Longtime series mainstays Yuji Himukai (Character Designer), Shin Nagasawa (Monster Designer), and Yuzo Koshiro (Composer) have come together to create the preeminent Etrian experience for the series’ final installment on the Nintendo 3DS™.
