Atlus has announced that their dungeon-crawling Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will release on the 17th of October in North America. The release date in Europe will be announced at a later time.
In Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, the player goes on a journey to reach the top of the towering Yggdrasil Tree. Legends say that whoever braves reaches the summit will have their greatest wish fulfilled, however, things aren't that simple. Besides being a gigantic labyrinth, the Yggrasil tree is home to many nightmarish creepy crawlies and terrifying foes just waiting for a tasty treat to come waltzing by.
Additionally, Atlus launched a new trailer that introduces the Fencer class. The Fencer is master of both rapier and shield. Quick on their feet, Fencers excel at evasion, stabbing, initiating defensive buffs, stabbing, chaining together attacks with other party members, and stabbing. They can further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.
Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will be available for Nintendo 3DS.
