While Nintendo has shifted most of its weight on the Switch, Atlus is among those developers that appear not to be ready to jump off the still-profitable 3DS ship. Today they announced Etrian Odyssey X (which read “Cross“), the latest game of the popular JRPG series Etrian Odyssey.

That being said, they did mention that this is the┬álast game of the series on Nintendo’s venerable pure-portable console. What will come after is unknown.

The game will be released on August 2nd, 2018 in Japan, and it’ll cost 6,480 yen excluding tax.

The setting is the floating city of Maginia on the island of Lemuria, and nineteen classes will be available to the player. This includes a new class named “Hero,” which you can see portrayed at the top of the post and on the box art.

The classic map-drawing system involving the stylus also makes a comeback, and we get the first trailer, that you can enjoy below.
