First look at Atlus' August-due 3DS sequel.

Etrian Odyssey V

The first direct-feed screenshots, Japanese box art, and story outline for Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth, Atlus’ recently detailed 3DS sequel, have hit the internet via the game’s newly listed Amazon Japan product page.

The dungeon RPG is set in a new land called “Arcadia,” where four races exist—the Arslan, Lunaria, Cerian, and Brani. Players can customize their own character and choose from at least 22 different character voices. Read more here.

Here’s the official story outline:


“Arcadia,” a land dominated by swords and magic. A huge tree from ancient times called “Yggdrasil” exists here and is to be the reason that peace visits the world.

There is a legend about that World Tree. If you can manage to reach its untrodden summit, it is said that your dreams will come true.

“The power to dominate the world.” “The most powerful.” “The world’s mysteries.” “Expensive treasures.”

Although there are four races that live in this land, each has a different legend, but no person has been able to confirm them.

From the city “Aeolis” at the bottom of Yggdrasil, the official orders are issued. In pursuit of the legend, the courageous adventurers who will challenge Yggdrasil gather in Aeolis. You’re one of the adventurers in response to the official orders.

Whether it’s for wealth and honor, or to satisfy your sense of adventure, you’ll challenge the labyrinths and aim for the top of the World Tree.

Etrian Odyssey V is due out for 3DS in Japan on August 4. A Niconico broadcast this Friday, March 5 at 21:00 Japan time will feature the first trailer.

View the screenshots at the gallery. You’ll also see the first-print bonus, which is the “Rough Sketch” version of the game’s soundtrack, and the collector’s edition, which includes a copy of the game, special box package, character and world art book, and a downloadable content code set for something that will be useful in the game.
