Stand Next To Royalty With Etrian Mystery Dungeon's Sovereign

Etrian Mystery Dungeon is set for release early next month and publisher Atlus USA has released information about another class in the game that'll be recognizable by fans of Etrian Odyssey III: the Sovereign.

Similar to what you'd imagine from a class based off royalty, the Sovereign doesn't participate directly in the battle like a Protector would but they do have the ability to buff and cast protective magic on their fellow party members through the power of their status.

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.
