Etrian Odyssey V Overview
Etrian Odyssey V (世界樹の迷宮V : 長き神話の果て) is the latest entry in the cult hit dungeon crawler series from Atlus. This one will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on August 4th, 2016. Currently, no announcements have been made concerning releases elsewhere.
The story is set in Arcadia, where four races inhabit the land:
•Cerian (beast ears)
The plot involves the legend of the summit of the ancient tree Yggdrasil, where seekers are told their dreams will become reality. You take control of a person of the city Aolith commissioned to lead a party of adventurers to reach the top and uncover the secret.
Director Shigeo Komori has stated that he feels that previous games in the series allowed you to create characters without enough weaknesses. They will be balancing the game so that all classes have specific roles like in the original Etrian Odyssey.
Classes confirmed so far are:
Fencer – Sharply wields pointy swords
Dragoon – Heavily armored physical fighter
Cestus – Brutal hand to hand fighter
Reaper – Uses sickles to mow down enemies
Necromancer – Summons and commands the dead
Warlock – Elemental magic masters
Herbalist – Heals the party with herbs
Shaman – Uses mysterious powers save and protect allies
Masurao – Crazy warriors that wield multiple swords at once
Hound → Pet job that uses falcons and dogs
