3DS sequel due out this fall in the west.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth

The launch edition of Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will include a 24-page art book, six-track music CD, and special outer box, Atlus announced.

Here’s an overview of each item, via Atlus:

  • 24-Page Art Book – Beautiful character art and concept sketches by the illustrious Yuji Himukai cover the pages of this magnificent art book. The unique explorers that will fill up your party are a wonder to behold.
  • Six-Track Music CD – A grand journey is utterly droll without music, so get into the adventuring mindset with an enchanting soundtrack crafted by long-time series composer Yuzo Koshiro.
  • Outer Box – The Yggdrasil and eager adventurers adorn this colorful out box which protects the precious treasures it holds within.

Atlus also released a new trailer introducing the Dragoon class. As one of the four classes for the Earthlain race, the Dragoon can soak up damage and unleash heavy artillery with their hand cannon. They specialize in protecting the party from various attacks with different guard stances, and are the first line of defense against monsters. As Dragoons level up, they can choose between a Master form that specializes in defense or offense.

Finally, Altlus announced that it will stream various Etrian seies games every Friday starting July 28 at 3:00 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET on Twitch, which will lead up to an Etrian Odyssey V streaming even on September 15.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth is available now in Japan, and will launch this fall in the Americas and Europe.
