Etrian Mystery Dungeon FeatureRoguelike Dungeon Crawler from ATLUS and Spike Chunsoft Comes to the Nintendo 3DS

IRVINE, Calif. – Dec. 3, 2014 – Far off in the mountains, the small village Aslarga becomes a hub for adventurers looking for fame and fortune from the Mystery Dungeons. But dire challenges await even the most stalwart adventurers in Etrian Mystery Dungeon, the upcoming turn-based action RPG roguelike from Atlus U.S.A. Inc., and developed by ATLUS and Spike Chunsoft. Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS™, Etrian Mystery Dungeon mixes Etrian Odyssey’s vast RPG party and skill customization aspects, and Mystery Dungeon’s infinitely random dungeon adventures. Etrian Mystery Dungeon will be available in spring 2015 in stores and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS for $39.99. Game details and updates will be posted on the official website: www.atlus.com/etrianmd

There’s no hand-holding in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The action/turn based combat means that battling monsters is not just about using the right skills, but becomes an elegant Pas de Quatre of strategic positioning. Players form their parties with familiar Etrian Odyssey classes, such as Landsknecht and Runemaster, customize individuals using Etrian-style skill trees, and then take up to four members into the dungeons. Always randomized with various levels and paths, the dungeons require plenty of exploration, not to mention the incredible loot rewards – just be wary of what waits among the deepest depths…

Main features in Etrian Mystery Dungeon include:

  • Infinite Dungeons to Explore – Etrian Mystery Dungeon incorporates the random map feature, which changes the floor terrain each time a player enters the dungeon. This core mechanic, inherited from the Mystery Dungeon series, challenges the players with a new maze and stronger monsters every time, offering them unlimited replayability!
  • Attention to Detail – The Etrian Odyssey tradition of party customization is in full effect for Etrian Mystery Dungeon. After the first journey as a Landsknecht, players can freely choose their party of 4 from up to 10 different class types. While each class has a unique skill set of its own, characters can also unlock new skills through skill trees.
  • Not Your Grandfather’s Combat – The unique perspective in Etrian Mystery Dungeon means that special care will have to be given when selecting party members and upgrading their abilities. With dungeons chock full of enemies and all the loot and money collected at stake, being 100 percent certain in your party’s abilities is crucial for making it out alive.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon will be available in North America in Spring 2015. The game will be available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS™ and is rated E10+ by the ESRB. For more information, visit the official website www.atlus.com/etrianmd

    Super hyped! I loved the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, and I’ve been loving The Millennium Girl. Can’t wait for spring~
    …Though, I do wonder why they’d announce localization for this before Untold II…
