Atlus launched a new trailer for the dungeon crawler RPG Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, coming to Nintendo 3DS on October 17 in North America, European date still “to be announced”.
The trailer introduces the Pugilist character class that players will be able to enlist into their adventuring party. The character can unleash large amounts of damage to tough enemies, which makes them perfect for the more difficult levels of the Yggdrasil Tree.
These martial arts masters use their fists as weapons and are best kept in the front lines of the battle. Additionally, many of their attacks are able to paralyze enemies, while they can also sacrifice their own HP in order to pull of some of their more complex skills.
In Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth players will be able to explore the Yggdrasil tree with their created party of explorers as the ascend the levels and map out their adventure in true Etrian series fashion. It’s said that at the top the tree there is a power to fulfill someone’s greatest wish, but it’s not that easy. There are many bosses, enemies, and other adventures that the player will encounter on their way up.
