Remember Eye of the Beholder? Since then 3D dungeon crawling has dipped a bit in popularity, but today we finally get to relive that nostalgic feeling thanks to Atlus, that just released Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. While it’s not Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, it’s still a great chance to explore some labyrinths, supported by the second screen of the 3DS, that enables some quite interesting mapping gameplay.
I actually remember my clumsy attempts to map previous games of the genre on paper. I usually started very carefully mapping every single square of all corridors, then after a couple of hours approximation started to take control, until my maps become a jumbled mess. This time, maybe, I’ll have better luck.
You can see how it works in the trailer below, while as usual I can’t thank Atlus USA enough for bringing this kind of games over, providing evidence that you don’t need to sell millions of units to be profitable.
