Gun Down Enemies With Etrian Mystery Dungeon's Gunner Class

By Shawn Collier on February 12, 2015, 10:27PM EDT

Earlier this week we got a look at the Medic class in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. Today we have a new video and screenshots from Atlus of another new class --- the Gunner.

The Gunner class is a master of ranged combat with the ability to bind specific body parts of an enemy. This can range from stopping their ability to walk to stoping the use of their arms from attacking the party. Of course, they aren't as powerful in the defensive department, but their long-range attacks make up for that issue.

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 Gunner class can be found below.
