In a livestream for the upcoming Etrian Odyssey Untold II, Atlus announced today not one but two more upcoming games for its Etrian Odyssey series. The first is Etrian Odyssey V, the fifth entry in the main series. No release date has been announced, but there is a teaser site here. Interestingly, the trailer and site don't mention the planned release platform, though the previous titles were released on the Nintendo 3DS.

The second announced game is a collaboration project with Spike Chunsoft. It will be a crossover between Etrian Odyssey and Mystery Dungeon, combining the mechanics from the Mystery Dungeon series with the look and feel from Etrian Odyssey. The current title for the game is "Mystery Dungeon and the World Tree", and it is planned for a release for the Nintendo 3DS on March 5, 2015 in Japan.

Currently, neither game has been confirmed for release outside of Japan. Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, another crossover between Etrian Odyssey and the Persona series, releases in North America tomorrow, and this Friday in Europe.

GCW Zero team member Dan 'senquack' Silsby has released a solid full-speed port of the popular freeware shoot-'em-up rRootage. It is one of the first ports in the official repository to make use of the GCW Zero's GPU. It supports screen-rotation, fully customizable controls, and even adds some new options the original game never had. With 160 individual levels to play across four unique game modes, it is a must-download if you enjoy fast-paced bullet-hell action.


With Wetspot 2, Dmitry Smagin surprises us with another retro game reimplementation for the GCW Zero. The game allows you to control a small crab and your target is to kill monsters in each of the levels. The only way to accomplish this is to push bricks.
