@shaneoh You know it released last year for them, right?

@shaneoh Atlus is pretty good about bringing over the cd's and such and they usually don't charge more for them. They have them available for a limited time as in for the first print run so as long as you pick it up within the first few weeks it would be that version. Of course they could change all that at any time and just release the game only.

If you wait awhile to get Atlus games though they go on crazy sale on the eshop later. So there is no need to spend all that money unless you want to get it on release. Although I haven't seen such sales too recently. I bet they will do some around the time these games come out

Missed this post.

Anyway, the Atlus sales seem to have decreased significantly since SEGA acquired them. I wouldn't rely on them having crazy sales like they used to.

Which is fine by me now that the Atlus tax seems to be a thing of the past. I was buying all of Atlus' stuff day one to support them before they went and hiked the prices of all their major games. I'll just go back to doing that now. Their games are incredible and fully worth $40.

I am probably going to pick this one up but I am going to be sore if it's anything like Untold 2. I HATED that game and almost snapped my 3ds because of how unfair it was. Also, those life bars were BS. FOE fights were more of how long your could survive.

@ScytheXero HP bloat was a big complaint about EO2U that I haven't heard about this game, so you're probably good.

So, the official site has a decent amount of information on classes, characters, streetpass, etc.

It looks like this game retains the guild card system, and actually expands it in certain ways. "The characters attached to the exchanged Guild Card may appear in events within the labyrinth. Perhaps you’ll encounter your friend’s character there...? It seems there will be various events that result in obtaining ingredients, items, and even helpful tips from them...!" Seems like a really neat use of the streetpass feature!

Another interesting feature. "Adventure Episodes: The mini events that occur in the labyrinth allow you to gain experience points, depending on what you experienced during those events. Each mini event now comes with a title and summary to further immersion into the game experience."

Dug up a Japanese review translated.

It scored quite well but I will somehow miss that overworld from IV.

So, I've just made the headlong jump into emulation and have started up 7th Dragon 2020, a sister game series to Etrian Odyssey (same director and some similar gameplay concepts). One thing that really stands out: you can actually see your characters when they attack. They slide in for their normal attacks and skills get fully animated with dynamic camera angles. I'm not sure why EO hasn't done anything like that, because it looks nice and is something I wish it did (Persona Q kinda did it already).

@Spoony_Tech I'll miss the overworld as well, although I do like how they're trying to go back to the style of EO I and II with this game. No more crazy class/subclass combinations or grimoires. Probably no weird dungeon gimmicks like in 2U. Just simple, classic EO.

@CrazedCavalier Probably because of the throwback nature of the series. The whole mapping function was calling back to people who would draw their own maps of Wizardry dungeons and such. You never actually see your characters in those games. It takes retro design sensibilities and combines them with modern, more sophisticated gameplay systems.

Edit: PWNED. I retract my clearly fallacious statement.

@Ralizah 7th Dragon III on the 3DS has Etrian-level customization (if anything, EOV's expanded color pallet and character feature editing was directly inspired by it) and still kept the character models-- it's mostly just texture editing.

@CrazedCavalier I acknowledge your superior level of knowledge on this matter.

Still, as I said, it's probably to keep with the retro thing the series has going for it. Probably the same reason you can download an FM variant of the game's OST.

Ralizah

CrazedCavalier

@Ralizah Yeah, you can switch between FM and the normal versions of the OST and EOV lets you avoid selecting voices for player characters. So why not let you enable/disable attack animations in the same manner?

@SMEXIZELDAMAN Not sure if it will be as good as IV but I need more Etrian regardless. At the very least it will be as good as 3 and I'm ok with that.
