Atlus has released new Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth information and screenshots, introducing the game’s Master and Titles system, and more character skills.

■ Master and Titles

Within the council, a skillful adventurer who has cleared certain conditions is acknowledged as a “Master.” Adventurers who become Masters can learn “Master Skills,” which are high-level techniques within their class. There are two types of Master Skill trees, and players can freely select the option with the skills they want to learn. Your options in this instance are known as the “Two Titles.”
