3DS games lock out top five
The Media Create chart results are out in Japan, and they make happy reading for Nintendo and an assortment of 3DS game publishers. Titles on the portable hold the top five software positions, with hardware sales also showing a modest boost. Starting with software, Etrian Odyssey V has made its debut at number one - its...
Also goes in-depth with Etrian Odyssey's races and classes
While last week was packed full of Nintendo news, Famitsu took a step back this week with only a handful of Nintendo games featured. However, they're some big ones; an in-depth preview and a review for Etrian Odyssey V and a review for Dragon Ball Fusion on the 3DS make this week's edition...
Say hello to Masurao and Cestus
Atlus has released two new character trailers for the forthcoming Etrian Odyssey V, which is due to launch in Japan this August. Masurao and Cestus are the characters in question, and each clip shows off some artwork as well as gameplay footage. There's no word on a western release as yet, but given that previous...
A Knight to Remember
Atlus' evergreen Etrian Odyssey series got its start on the DS with a trilogy of excellent map-making adventures, and it's found similar success on Nintendo's newest handheld, with Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan and spinoffs Etrian Mystery Dungeon and Persona Q all right at home on the 3DS. Thanks to 2013's
NIS America wants you to know REALLY early
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight was recently confirmed for an early 2016 release in Europe, with NIS America doing the welcome job of localisation. While that localisation of Atlus games often causes delays for the EU region, there's an element of simply being grateful that 3DS titles such as...
For you hardcore dungeon crawling enthusiasts
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is set to be quite the content rich package, featuring two parallel game modes that promise to offer roughly the same amount of content. The newest mode, Story Mode, will follow the adventures of the Fafnir Knight and be much more focused on story and feature...
No news on a European release
For those of you that aren't fans, the Etrian Odyssey series is an old school, dungeon-crawling RPG that tasks players with exploring vast mazes from a first person perspective. This series is refreshing for placing players in relatively open environments, such as oceans or jungles, as opposed to the typically...
"There's a metric buttload of exploration"
Just recently Atlus revealed a couple of exciting projects, including an Etrian Odyssey and Mystery Dungeon mash-up being developed exclusively for 3DS by its own team and Spike Chunsoft — the Etrian Odyssey series is well known in the West, though Mystery Dungeon has had a patchier record with...
Buckle up, RPG fans
The 3DS has already established itself as a terrific console for fans of RPGs, particularly those developed in Japan. Atlus are the main contributors to that, of course, not only producing excellent titles but also localising them to North America and — gradually — Europe. Those that enjoy this output have some good news to...
And then cross your fingers for a western release
Etrian Odyssey Untold II hits Japanese stores on the 27th of this very month, and in order to build some hype in its homeland publisher Atlus has made the opening cinematic public. It's the next instalment in a series which has been active since the days of the Nintendo DS and follows on from the...
The cheeky scamps
How would you like a new Etrian Odyssey game? You would? Well, it looks like Atlus has made your day. The publisher has launched a new teaser site with the tagline "this is not broccoli". It's rather quirky as it makes you click up to 10,000 meters of a tree, introducing three logos at intervals as you make your way up; at the end...
Epic adventures lie ahead
We already knew that Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl was bound for Europe at some point this year, and yesterday's Nintendo Direct broadcast has finally given us a solid date: May 2nd. The game launched in North America last year, and gained a glowing review from us. "Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl...
eShop demo will also be made available prior to launch
NIS America has confirmed what we all suspected: dungeon-crawling epic Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is indeed headed to Europe. There's no solid release date as yet, but the publisher has confirmed that the game is coming in 2014. It has also been revealed that it will be...
Don't call it a comeback
When Etrian Odyssey arrived on the DS in 2007, it was something of a revelation. A dungeon-crawler that traded in dusty catacombs for organic, open-air environments and prized cartography and character customization over narrative, it combined the best of pen-and-paper RPGs with Nintendo's new touch-screen hardware to create...
We give you an exclusive first look at the new 3DS RPG classic
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl arrives in North America on October 1st, but we've been granted early access to the game thanks to our good friends at Atlus. Below you'll find our exclusive "First Look" video which details the opening moments of the game, from the animated...
Odds are good you've seen its work
The upcoming Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl (aka Millennium Maiden), a reported remake of the first game in the series, likely has enough reasons to entice fans already. But just in case, Famitsu has revealed another: Millennium Girl’s cutscenes will be made by the anime studio Madhouse. What’s Madhouse, you...
