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.
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.
This piece comes from Alexandra Douglass — you can download the non-cropped desktop background and read an interview about the artist’s contributions to the U.S. release at the official EOIV blog.
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
- Partially fan-translated Iwata Asks interview for Etrian Odyssey IV
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.
Etrian Odyssey IV’s Fortress Class
I’ve always thought of Fortresses as structures and not people, but Etrian Odyssey IV uses the term for its new defensive class, which replaces the Hoplites and Protectors from previous entries. Their job is to absorb attacks and even jump in front of other party members to take hits for the team. It sounds like an awful job.
Meet Etrian Odyssey IV’s multi-purpose Medic
The role of this class as your primary healer seems obvious, but there’s more to the Medics in this 3DS game. For one, they can neutralize enemies while the rest of your party puts in work. Outside of combat, they come in handy when foraging for plants and removing poison from food. Also, it’s nice to have them around to diagnose that rash, prescribe meds for your diabetes, or help you set up an HSA.
What is a Landsknecht? This is a Landsknecht!
I imagine it’s pretty difficult to make interesting or exciting trailers for Etrian Odyssey IV, seeing as it’s a first-person dungeon crawler with limited animations. So it’s smart of Atlus to instead use its promotional videos to explain the 3DS game’s individual classes like the Landsknecht, since it’s not obvious to series neophytes what a Landsknecht does.
Like, does the class sknecht a bunch of dudes, but only on land? What’s a sknecht anyway? Is it a German pastry popular with the working class? While I can’t say for sure whether sknecht is delicious or an acquired taste, I can tell you that the Landsknecht in Etrian Odyssey is a well-balanced, damage dealing class with some nice elemental skills.
New Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan trailer. The year’s biggest 3DS retail releases are already behind us, but there are a number of titles coming out in early 2013 that are worth looking forward to, like this new entry for Atlus’ cult first-person RPG. This ships on February 26.
