The Etrian Odyssey series has developed quite a following over the years and after three successful DS games, Atlus has announced that Etrian Odyssey IV will make the jump to the 3DS.
Currently scheduled for a July release in Japan, the game will be revealed in this week’s issue of Famitsu. A North American release has yet to be confirmed, but I assume it’s only a matter of time until Atlus alerts their Faithful about an Etrian Odyssey IV localization.
The Famitsu report also confirms that players will get a break from the franchise’s notorious difficulty in the fourth entry. A “Casual Mode” will be selectable from the start and players will be able to change the difficulty at any time during gameplay.
