Etrian Odyssey IV has recently been announced for release in July on the Nintendo 3DS however only within Japan at the moment. This series is the fourth installment in Atlus’ dungeon crawling RPG franchise that is all about making your way through the often brutal dungeons while being left to draw your own maps. This is the series first release on the Nintendo 3DS, originally having been available on the Nintendo DS exclusively, so I am interested to see how they make use of its unique capabilities once launched.
Below is some brand new screenshots for the game coupled with artwork for both environment and characters. For those who are interested in one of my very early game reviews on this site (All the way back in 2009) – you can read my review of the original game in the series HERE.
