Etrian Mystery Dungeon Shows Gameplay, Preorders Up

By   /   Dec 22, 2014

Publisher Atlus released a new teaser for Etrian Mystery Dungeon, their spinoff take on the roleplaying game (RPG) series. It shows some gameplay set in the top-down locations of the game.

As the name suggests, Etrian Mystery Dungeon switches the model to a dungeon crawler genre with some roguelike elements. Characters will move on a tile-based map, where combat is turn-based.

Combat can be facilitated by moving around, such as some other roguelike titles. A party moves in a certain formation, which can fluctuate as they move around tiles.

The clip also mentions “dynamic” dungeons, which means that levels are randomly generated as the party moves through rooms. There are 10 or so different classes to choose from.

Moreover, characters can be customized with different skills, spells and so on. They also have a certain proficiency that can help multiple party members.

If that has you anxious to know more about Etrian Mystery Dungeon, Atlus also unleashed nearly 40 minutes of gameplay for the upcoming dungeon crawler.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon will come to North America in Spring of 2015 on Nintendo 3DS. Preorders are up now, for a price of $39.99.

Those who purchase the game before it releases will be rewarded with a soundtrack CD.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon is one of two new games coming to the series. Last month, Atlus also revealed that Etrian Odyssey V would continue the RPG series.

Both games have most of the core Etrian team working on it. Shigeo Komori will produce Etrian Odyssey V.
