Etrian Odyssey V

Atlus has a new Etrian Odyssey V trailer focusing on the Pugilist class. We have the video along with a brief introduction below.

If you’re looking to dish out more damage while adventuring in the Yggdrasil Tree, you can’t go wrong with having a Pugilist in the party. These masters of martial arts and bare-knuckle brawling are ready to punch some beasts in the face, so be sure to slot them in the front line and let them loose. Besides being able to inflict game changing binds and paralysis on enemies, Pugilists can sacrifice HP in order to deal out some very punishing attacks. It’s never a bad idea to roll around with someone whose fists are considered deadly weapons.

There’s a new character class trailer for Etrian Odyssey V– this time it’s the botanist. A botanist is said to both heal and hurt with herbs. You can see this proof-of-concept below.

Do you know what’s really effective against the deadly creatures that call the Yggdrasil tree home? If you said katanas, you’re absolutely right! Luckily, the Therian Masurao in Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth just so happens to delight in slicing and dicing with beautifully crafted Japanese swords. They can be slotted in the frontline to slash everything in their path and can even attack multiple opponents in a single attack. Oh, they can also lure rare enemies into combat to get better items and gain more experience with the New Challenger skill. The better the skill, the rarer the enemies, and the greater the rewards! The Masurao can specialize in using one sword to become a master of the blade or it can learn to wield up to four of them and become a bona fide sword saint.

Etrian Odyssey V will launch in North America on October 17, Atlus announced today. The European release date will be shared at a later date.

As previously mentioned, those who pre-order Etrian Odyssey V or pick it up around launch day will receive the limited edition pictured above. It includes a copy of the game, a 24-page art book, 6-track music CD, and outer box.

There are a lot of monsters that call the Yggdrasil home. Sure, cold hard steel and explosive gunpowder can usually get the job done, but sometimes a little more “oomph” is required when dealing with these pesky beasts. Thankfully, the Celestrian’s Warlock class provides a magical spark to these engagements. And when we say spark, we actually mean ancient power that can summon raging fireballs, monstrous hailstorms, amplify other magical abilities, and more! As they level up, Warlocks can further specialize in base elemental skills (fire, ice, and lightning) or branch out to learn new elemental earth and wind spells.

Yesterday, Atlus announced the Etrian Odyssey V launch edition for North America. Copies will come with a 24-page art book, and 6-track music CD, and a special outer box.

Deep Silver is handling the distribution of Etrian Odyssey V in Europe. Not all of these goodies are planned for PAL region, but one of them is being brought over. Those who pre-order or otherwise purchase Etrian Odyssey V in Europe will be given the same art book.
