Etrian Mystery Dungeon releases in a little over a month in North America and publisher Atlus USA has released some new information about another one of the game's playable classes: the Hexer.
Hexers are similar to the Gunner class in that they can debilitate enemies, but the difference with Hexers is that they can fire debuffs, status abnormalities such as poison as well as binds. They're an advanced class for sure, but those who can "wrap" their heads around the class will find a lot of ways to get use out of them in battle.
For those who aren't aware, the Mystery Dungeon titles are roguelike dungeon crawlers that take the player's group of characters through randomly generated dungeons to delve further in the dungeon and gather loot and spoils from enemies. The major change for this title is that you look at the world from a fixed overhead viewpoint as opposed to the first-person viewpoint the Etrian Odyssey series is known for.
Etrian Mystery Dungeon will be released on April 7, 2015 in North America both at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for $39.99. If you pick up the retail version at launch (until supplies last) you'll get a special launch bonus with a visual art book and soundtrack selection from the game.
Screenshots and artwork of the Hexer class can be found below.
