• Atlus has released a new trailer one of their upcoming 3DS titles, Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan.  For centuries, the tree Yggdrasil has been a constant presence in the lives of the people of Tharsis. It looms on the horizon, visible from everywhere in the city. But its roots are in a far-off land where no one has ventured until the Outland Count of Tharsis sponsors an Explorers Guild to reach Yggdrasil and discover its secrets. You are the latest explorer arriving in Tharsis to seek your fame and fortune. Board your skyship and set out into the clouds in search of treasure, glory, and the answer to Tharsis’ oldest mystery.

    Celebrate the tradition of classic pen and paper role-playing games by using the bottom touch screen to chart out your path, create maps, and identify the dangers you have encountered. A deep character creation and party customization system encourages experimentation and rewards creativity and imagination. Etrian Odyssey IV is packed with improvements and content including an enhanced graphics engine; upgradeable and customizable skyships that let players travel and battle amid the clouds; an exceedingly atmospheric and fully orchestrated musical score from Yuzo Koshiro; expanded, more immersive 3D dungeons with analog camera control; and guild card + character trading functionality via StreetPass.

    Also in case you missed it last week, Atlus announced a limited edition art book and music CD as bonus items to accompany any pre-order or retail purchase of Etrian Odyssey IV (while supplies last). More details on the bonus are available here: http://www.atlus.com/etrian4/purchase.html.  To check out a two-page preview sample of the art book please visit: http://issuu.com/atlususa/docs/etrian4artbook.

    Etrian Odyssey IV is currently slated for release on February 26, 2013 and will be available both at retail and on Nintendo’s eShop.  What do you think?  Are you interested in Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan?
