Atlus has revealed that Etrian Odyssey Nexus - known as Etrian Odyssey X in Japan - will be heading westward in February next year.
The game was released in Japan on 2nd August, acting as the final game of the series on Nintendo 3DS. Atlus has already teased future titles - seemingly coming to Switch - but it's great to see this final hoorah for the series on Nintendo's little 3D wonder. The game will be available on 5th February and pre-orders are said to be live right now (although, at the time of writing, Atlas' link isn't working correctly).
- The Definitive Etrian Odyssey Experience - With more classes, characters, gameplay systems, and labyrinths than any other game in the series, Etrian Odyssey Nexus is the ultimate dungeon-crawling adventure.
- Customise Your Perfect Exploration Party - Create and customize characters from 19 playable classes, then take on the dangerous creatures of Lemuria's labyrinths with your perfect party!
- Both Newcomers and Veterans Welcome! - With the ability to swap between four distinct difficulty settings, auto-mapping settings, and a grand standalone story, there's something for everyone from series newcomers to experienced veterans.
- A Love Letter to Etrian - Longtime series mainstays Yuji Himukai (Character Designer), Shin Nagasawa (Monster Designer), and Yuzo Koshiro (Composer) have come together to create the preeminent Etrian experience for the series' final installment on the Nintendo 3DS.
With several months sitting between now and release, we're confident that we'll hear much more about this title and what we can expect to find in the game. If it's anything like its predecessors, though, including the magnificent Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth that arrived in the west last year, we're very hopeful for another success story here.
