    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."

    Looks interesting, I might have to pick this one up if it gets localized.
