Etrian Odyssey Nexus has received its first English trailer showing some of the returning features, classes, and classic dungeon-crawling gameplay.
Coming to the Nintendo 3DS on February 5, 2019, this will be the final Etrian Odyssey game on that handheld console. Due to this, developer Atlus has included the best aspects of the entire series, from characters, 19 classes, and having the most labyrinths out of any entry. A brand new class, the Hero class, will also be included. Subclasses, force boost, and force break return as gameplay features.
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!
Japan received this game earlier this year as Etrian Odyssey X with a Western localization announced shortly afterwards. A launch edition will include a Vivian Pin, art book, and an outer box for the game case for $39.99 USD and you can view an image of it below.
Etrian Odyssey first released on the Nintendo DS in 2007 and is unique for its map creation system in which players will use the DS and 3DS stylus to fill in the dungeon map on the lower touchscreen of the handheld systems. The upcoming Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth utilizes the Etrian Odyssey gameplay but replaces the setting and characters with the Persona series and is a sequel to Persona Q which released in 2014.
