Game to be last 3DS Etrian Odyssey title
ATLUS has announced that Etrian Odyssey Nexus will be headed to the 3DS early next year.
Titled Etrian Odyssey X in Japan, Nexus will be the final 3DS installment of the Etrian Odyssey franchise. The game will begin within the confines of the floating city of Maginia where the player, after being summoned to the city alongside other famous explorers by Princess Persephone, will begin their journey of uncovering the mysteries of the archipelago of Lemuria, home to a mighty Yggdrasil Tree. Nexus will feature 19 playable classes, including the all-new and quite powerful “Hero” class, from which players can make their ultimate party, as well as over 100 story-rich quests, varying levels of difficulty, and the return of optional accessibility features such as auto-mapping.
