Etrian Odyssey Nexus


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. For more information, check out the list of key details below:

  • The Definitive Etrian Odyssey Experience – With more classes, characters, gameplay systems, and labyrinths than any other game in the series, Etrian Odyssey Nexus is the ultimate dungeon-crawling adventure.
  • Customize Your Perfect Exploration Party – Create and customize characters from 19 playable classes, then take on the dangerous creatures of Lemuria’s labyrinths with your perfect party!
  • Both Newcomers and Veterans Welcome! – With the ability to swap between four distinct difficulty settings, auto-mapping settings, and a grand standalone story, there’s something for everyone from series newcomers to experienced veterans.
  • A Love Letter to Etrian – Longtime series mainstays Yuji Himukai (Character Designer), Shin Nagasawa (Monster Designer), and Yuzo Koshiro (Composer) have come together to create the preeminent Etrian experience for the series’ final installment on the Nintendo 3DS™.

Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense.
