One of the first games Atlus announced for the 3DS was a new entry in the Etrian Odyssey dungeon RPG series. The new game at last gets its reveal in Famitsu this week as Etrian Odyssey IV. The game's full name is, in Japanese, Sekaiju no Meikyuu IV: Densetsu no Kyojin.

Sinobi's report from an early copy of Famitsu reveals that the game's staff includes Daisuke Kaneda as director, Nizou Yamamoto as background artist, Shin Nagasawa on monster design, Yuji Himukai as character designer and Yuzo Koshiro on sound.

The magazine introduces seven jobs, including sword man, medic, dancer, and sniper. This may be just a sampling of the total job list, though.

The game will add a difficulty setting in order to appeal to newcomers. Joining the standard Normal difficulty, players will be able to select a casual mode. The difficulty can be changed at any point during play.

Etrian Odyssey IV will be released on July 5, priced ¥6,279. An official site for the game will open at sq4.atlusnet.jp later this week.

casual mode. *scoffs*

*plays RE:R on Casual mode*


kidding aside, yes. dungeon romps in 3D... but, combat is with 2D sprites. are they gonna do Overclocked and NOT make combat 3D? are they gonna go 3D enemies instead of 2D sprites?

also, i don't mind grid based movement, but i hope they make the dungeons LUSCIOUS. and add a gyro free-look mode so you can look around and appreciate the gorgeous new dungeons. make it something like Beyond the Labyrinth. in fact, make it something exactly like that, except with Etrian Oddysey mechanics (because it's not Etrian Oddysey unless they keep the mechanics).

Never got into the previous titles, glad to see the previous titles were successful enough to warrant a sequel. The games were well made and I can see why some people would really like this.

Casual mode? No more ultra-grinding just to get out of the first floor? YES.
I gotta agree. xP
I love the game, but God.. You had to go inside, get hurt and almost dieing, leaving to heal, do the same step over 30 times.

I wonder why all the English websites are calling it "Densetsu no Kyojin" when it's actually "Denshō no Kyojin?" :blink:

The kanji in the title graphic is 伝 (denshō).

The kanji for densetsu is 伝. I'd like to think that I can recognize the kanji for my own name when I see it.

Meh, I guess it doesn't really matter since the localized names of the previous three games don't resemble anything close to the original Japanese titles anyway. "Sekaiju no Meikyū" literally means "The Labyrinths of Yggdrasil."

Atlus is making Etrian Odyssey IV for the Nintendo 3DS and so far seven classes have been revealed. Rune Masters are experts at attacking enemies with elemental attributes while Medics are recovery specialists. Snipers are essentially archers and attack enemies from afar. The Swordsman class specializes in cutting up commanding officers and Fortress acts as an iron wall defending the party. Dancers are support units.



Etrian Odyssey IV looks similar to other games in the series, but director Daisuke Kanada wants this title to be more accessible. He added a casual mode to the game and players can toggle between normal or casual difficulty at any time. Kanada believes newcomers and busy gamers can enjoy dungeon crawling and cartography in casual mode. Because they created casual mode, Kanada raised the level of difficulty in normal mode.



Etrian Odyssey IV comes out on July 5 in Japan.

Oh I'll definitely pick Medic and maybe Swordsman, probably Sniper and Rune Master.

    hi

    Hi leo
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    @Xdqwerty A lot of work. I sought out counselling, started journalling and introspecting a lot, learning about philosophy, trying to live more in the present and not looking for reasons to worry and stop comparing myself to others.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    It wasn't easy or quick but I'm getting there.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Thats cool
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    on my way to neutralize "condomina"

    lol
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    @Xdqwerty The good thing is that anyone can do it and nobody is above happiness. But it has to come as a result of making good choices and not just a goal you can brute force your way into.

  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's all nice and fine, though sometimes if you're in a toxic environment the only way to improve yourself and the situation is to leave, also
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because others can drag you back down even if you improve, but as I said that depends
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    My classroom is kinda a toxic environment
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    True, which would be a good choice if it releases you from that suffering.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea exactly
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I got into a toxic environment when I switched schools, something I was pressured to do long ago by my mom mostly
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because there were a couple of teachers who were objectively bad and who kept giving me bad grades, even thogh if I had stayed they would leave in the following year anyways
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I'm a verbal abuse víctim i think
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I had noit known that and I let myself be manipulated into quitting...I'd rather have let myself be have fights with my mom than to let myself be blackmailed into effectively destroying my life or leading to it
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    my mother was the one who verbally abused me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    with me it started with verbal abuse...I tried to ignore it...until it got worse and after summer break it went from verbal into sneaky physical, not just theft but once they saw me as real problem they tried to poison me outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because they couldn't apply their usual tactics anymore it all went worse from there
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and I was a threat to their hierarchy and the way the gang worked
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I did in the end cause the gang leader who was installed there by the larger gang, to loose his influence over the classmates but it had a terrible cost
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    in that it caused my other best friend, who joined that school, to betray me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
