All Articles: Etrian Odyssey IV
Atlus’ DS RPG series makes the leap to the 3DS as Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan leads this week’s look at what’s new in stores. Also available this week, Ryu Hayabusa returns to a Sony portable platform (along with three beautiful assistants: Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji) in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus for the Vita.
If you’ve skipped the DLC content for Borderlands 2 so far, but don’t want to wait for the inevitable Game of the Year Edition, you might be interested in checking out the Borderlands 2: Add-On Content Pack for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It smushes the first two expansions and the Mechromancer character class onto a single disc (which requires Borderlands 2) for a decent price. Motorcycle racing game Mud: FIM Motocross World Championship is also available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.
Finally, this week sees the release of the Kinect-powered Top Hand Rodeo Tour, which I imagine just asks you to do the “Gangnam Style” dance in your living room under the guise of taming a bucking bull.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available for the 3DS and Wii U on March 19, but you can download a demo from the Nintendo eShop beginning today! If monster-slaying isn’t your thing, two other demos, Trine 2: Director’s Cut on the Wii U eShop and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on the 3DS eShop, are now available.
Wii U gamers will also get a chance into the past this week with F-Zero. The Super NES classic has been priced at 30 cents for a limited time, so if Captain Falcon stirs fond memories in your Nintendo thumb, now’s the time to buy.
Finally this week, we have a quartet of 3DS game downloads…
- Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse is a dungeon-crawling RPG from developer Intense.
- Viking Invasion 2 is a tower defense game with vikings.
- Yoshi is the NES puzzle game, re-released for the 3DS’ Virtual Console.
- And Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is the latest RPG from Atlus. It’ll be available on Tuesday, February 26.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Atlus has released the first trailer for Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan, which will be available for the 3DS on February 26, 2013.
Here’s what you can expect from the first game in the series to appear on the 3DS:
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.
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.
