Tiny Cartridge 3DS

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.

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…

Shout outs to TheYoungDoyley for the EOIV art. Oh, and here are the Amazon links for the discounted copies of Etrian Odyssey IV and Soul Hackers.
[Update: EOIV is on backorder, but you can still get it for $20 under alternate sellers.]

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…

Tiny Cartridge & Etrian Odyssey IV QR code

Etrian Odyssey IV owners, here’s one more quest you can send your party to complete in the game, if you don’t mind taking orders from some Tumblr blog’s mascot. Though you’ll need to have reached The Hall of Darkness (6th Maze) to access the quest, if you’re not at that point yet, you’ll have this whole weekend to fight your way there! :oP 

I was supposed to post this forever ago, I know, but at least more of you will have played enough of the game to be able to unlock the quest now! Much thanks to @oliviactually and @kamiwoo for their help.

Splendid Etrian Odyssey IV wallpaper
That flying ship is a lot smaller than I expected, what with the surplus of Red Horned Ox I tend to collect while sailing through the game’s overworld.

Atlus’ relationship status with fans
This message (posted by Coney Island Disco Palace) comes up when you register one of the many QR codes distributed for Etrian Odyssey IV — if Atlus planned it right, the publisher would have released this through the game’s Facebook page.
If you missed the link earlier, this Into The Labyrinth forum thread is pretty good for collecting EOIV QR codes. I just found a couple items I hadn’t seen before (Matador Rapier and Sarcophagus Armor), and there are a bunch of quests littered throughout the thread.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jig Lizard

This Etrian Odyssey IV enemy is too cute. Like, his special move is is turning invisible so no one can hit him, then reappearing to smack you with his silly tongue — and while he’s invisible, he continues his jig.

Too. Cute. Might even be related to our own lizard.

Here’s the line that helped Etrian Odyssey IV earn its T-for-Teen rating
And here are some links for those of you making your way through the game (the above photo comes from Swagtoise, by the way):
A Guild Card creator for sharing your card with friends
Etrian Odyssey 4-Koma - just started, but lots of potential!
Another batch of QR codes for unlocking items and quests
Etrian Odyssey IV Skill Simulator - very useful for seeing whether it’s worth pumping so many points into a particular skill

I took on my first FOE last night! It was a bit close at times because I was a miser with heals and wanted to conserve TP, but the Attolia Guild (Landsknecht/Fortress in front, Nightseeker/Medic/Sniper in back) managed to take the angry bear thingy down.

Etrian Odyssey IV launch trailer

This is out today! This is my first for-real Etrian Odyssey IV playthrough, and I’m having a blast with it so far — it’s not nearly as intimidating as I expected it to be, once I named everyone (after Queen’s Thief characters) and doled out the initial batch of skill points. I know a lot of you are still immersed in Fire Emblem: Awakening, but if I can manage to pull myself away to play this a bit, I’m sure you can too.

If you need some extra motivation to try out EOIV, here are a dozen QR codes that you can scan to unlock bonus items/quests. Many of them even work with the eShop demo!

Remember Etrian Odyssey IV?
That’s still coming out at the end of the month — there’s a free demo available on the 3DS eShop today, which you should give a run if you can manage to pull yourself away from Fire Emblem: Awakening. Doesn’t this art (by mochimochi@tsuuhan hajimashita) make you want to at least load it up to see what the deal is?
To provide extra encouragement, Atlus has made it so you can transer your progress from the demo to the eventual full release, and has even put out QR codes that you can scan for special bonuses in the trial. Here’s a new trailer for the first-person RPG’s Nightseeker class, too.
As for other stuff that hit the eShop today, we got you covered right here.

Fear Etrian Odyssey IV's Rune Master

If you need to bring some lightning down on kangaroo-looking enemies or ice an afro’d babboon, call these dudes. They’ve put in a lot of time — and paid the blood cost — studying how to harness Mother Nature’s power for the greater glory of inconveniencing animals.
