Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan, the new RPG from Atlus and Published by Nis America, is now available for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system.
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is a dungeon crawling RPG that emphasizes careful exploration and character growth just as much as battle. Different from other titles in this popular sub-genre, Etrian Odyssey puts total control in the player’s hands in two unique ways. One is the unique system that uses the 3DS’ stylus and touch screen that puts the player in charge of mapping the dungeon. Part of the joy of dungeon crawlers is the thrill of exploring new dungeons and Etrian Odyssey takes that joy to a whole new level.
Secondly, Etrian Odyssey features a robust class system of ten different types that each have their own unique skill trees. This allows players to create the exact party that they want, as well as keeps the game interesting by allowing players to change their party set-up at will. Players can also unlock sub-classes on their party members for further customization and versatility. In addition to this, the title makes use of QR codes and the StreetPass system to allow for bonus content, as well as for players to exchange characters.
The critically acclaimed dungeon RPG makes its first appearance on the 3DS! Players take on the role of an adventurer who has journeyed to the land of Tharsis in search of secrets of the World Tree, Yggdrasil in the fourth installment of the highly acclaimed dungeon crawling Etrian Odyssey series. Graphics have been greatly improved from previous installments and enemies appear as 3D models for the first time.
Deep Character Development System! Players will eventually gain access to 10 different classes, each with their own unique skill trees. After a certain point in the game, players will also have access to sub-classes, which allow for further customization and strategic party-building. The systems offer an incredible amount of freedom and variety for a different play style and game experience each time.
Players Map Dungeons Themselves! Being a dungeon crawler, the focus of the game is exploring dungeons for loot and profit. However, unique to Etrian Odyssey is the feature of players mapping the dungeons they explore using the 3DS’ stylus and touch screen! Careful mapping allows players to navigate the dungeons smoothly and takes the genre back to its earliest days with clever use of technology!
