The team at Nippon Ichi Software America have previously announced their plans to join with ATLUS USA in bringing Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan to PAL regions. However today Aussie fans of dungeon crawling RPG’s have something to be happy about as Namco Bandai Games Australia confirmed they will be teaming up with these companies to bring the game to Australia and New Zealand on the 29th August 2013. This is the first game in the series that has hit Australia since the original release of Etrian Odyssey many years ago. The game will be available in physical format at retail stores, as well as a digital download version on the Nintendo eShop.
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan contains plenty of challenges and gameplay for fans of old school dungeon-crawling RPGs, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Players will utilize the 3DS system‘s bottom touch screen to chart their path and create their own maps to keep the party alive in the face of the dangers that await. The game offers robust character customization and job class options, as well as an all-new “Casual” difficulty option to provide greater accessibility for players new to the series.
