Etrian Odyssey IV Imperial figure ⊟
By Kotobukiya, shipping in November for 5184 yen ($50ish). This is really nice and detailed, and makes me realize that the chibi-esque character art in the games has a lot more going on than I notice… Via Siliconera.
This is not broccoli; it’s probably an Etrian Odyssey teaser ⊟
Atlus posted this tweet and teaser site (titled “This is not broccoli”) for a new game, with a big tree that you scale by clicking an up arrow button. As you scale the tree, the letters 2, D, and X pop out.
Seems reasonable to believe that this is a teaser for a new Etrian Odyssey, as those deal with the world tree Yggdrasil. My guess is that it’s an “Untold” remake of Etrian Odyssey 2 – a “DX” version, so to speak.
We’ll find out, uh, “soon,” by which I mean when the Famitsu article shows up online two days before the game is officially revealed.
Conception 2 limited edition bundle ⊟
The first run of Conception 2 will include a 10-track soundtrack CD, because Atlus. You don’t see many big collector boxes on Vita! I’m ashamed to admit that a big game box instantly makes games more desirable, even though I haven’t bought a game LE since MGS3 and prefer to buy digital.
Speaking of buying digital (segue!), Atlus is holding a big eShop sale in North America, assuming the eShop is up when you read this. Etrian Odyssey Untold and SMT4 are $30, and Etrian Odyssey 4, Code of Princess, Devil Survivor and Soul Hackers are $20 each.
Thanks for letting us know about the deal, funny-looking wolf dude. The number of high-profile releases coming out has slowed down, and our holiday vacations are nearing — seems like a good time to pick up Millennium Girl. Credit to TuteMyPokéFlute for the derp wolf pic.
Etrian Odyssey-style Persona Q comes to 3DS ⊟
Amongst a slew of Persona announcements coming out of Japan this morning, Atlus revealed it’s finally bringing the cult RPG series to 3DS (remember that E3 2010 tease?), but no in a way anyone expected.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, will be an Etrian Odyssey-style dungeon crawler starring characters from the series’ third and fourth game. Those characters will be presented in chibi form, which I’m alright with. It’s cute stuff.
This spin-off releases in Japan next June — watch a trailer for it here. Don’t worry, Atlus revealed Persona 5 for PlayStation 3, too (winter 2014 in Japan).
BUY Persona 4 Golden ($24.61), upcoming games
What’s in the Etrian Odyssey Untold box ⊟
Man, Atlus knows how to put together a game package. And a video about that game package. Whether you’re buying on the eShop or in this box, it comes out October 1.
Etrian Odyssey IV for $20, Soul Hackers for $25 ⊟
I know Etrian Odyssey Untold comes out in just a few days, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on an opportunity to fill your 3DS library with more Atlus RPGs. Besides, who knows when we’ll get more from the company…
[Update: EOIV is on backorder, but you can still get it for $20 under alternate sellers.]
Introducing Etrian Odyssey Untold's Raquna and Arthur ⊟
These two trailers show off two of Etrian Odyssey Untold's characters, because it has characters now! These two videos aren't all the media Atlus dropped: there's also a soundtrack preview.
Exploring Etrian Odyssey Untold's Classic Mode ⊟
I expect the new Story Mode in Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl will make this remake a lot more approachable to people who’ve avoided the series up to this point, but if you prefer to roll without, um, pre-rolled characters (like if you want to do all that rolling yourself), you can kick it old school like and old fool who’s so cool.
Of course you’ll be missing out on the game’s shota Arthur Charles, whom Atlus also released a trailer for. Anyway, you’ll be able to try out the game on September 16 when a demo hits the eShop (saves from the demo will transfer to the full game).
Etrian Odyssey Untold story/voice acting trailer ⊟
I was looking at next month’s releases, and September seems weak for retail 3DS games, but as soon as October hits — this goes out on the 1st — shit gets craydiculous, and it will be hard to find the time to play everything. I feel like we had the same problem when Etrian Odyssey IV came out..
Etrian Odyssey IV comes to Europe August 30 ⊟
…with an eShop release a week later. Sure, North America gets Etrian Odyssey Untold just a couple months later, but at least Europe is catching up, sorta! And it’s not like you’re going to finish this one quickly.
A demo is up on the eShop today. It’s up in North America too, if you’re in that region and never got around to checking it out…
Etrian Odyssey Untold's box set
Surprising no one who buys Atlus’s games on the reg, the publisher revealed its first run of Etrian Odyssey: Untold The Millennium Girl copies will include a design book (character art, comics, and notes) and a seven-track music CD featuring arrangements by Yuzo Koshiro. Eases the pain of spending $40 for another Etrian Odyssey game this year.
