European Sega fans will finally be able to get their hands on the physical release of Sega 3D Classics Collection on November 4th, 2016.
Community Manager Dan Sherwood announced the release date on latest Sega Central live stream, which you can watch below.
Etrian Odyssey V has topped Japanese sales charts in it’s debut week, with 92,518 units sold in just 3 days.
The numbers from Media Create show a very strong opening for the game in the Japanese market. It was received quite well by the Japanese magazine Famitsu. They awarded the game a 35/40 and praised it’s changes to the character creation system.
The previous entry in the main series of EO games, Etrian Odyssey IV, sold over 100,000 units in it’s debut week. It saw the strongest sales in the series to date.
While EOV’s did open with slightly lower numbers, I think it’s still an impressive showing. The game released halfway through the tracked week and still beat out it’s closest competitor Dragon Ball Fusions by roughly 15,000 copies.
In addition, the Nintendo 3DS is 4 years older at this point and I’m certain many owners have hung up their 3DS for good by now. I wonder if the series will move to the Nintendo NX or smartphones in the future?

It still hasn’t been announced for a Western localization, so if you’re anxious to play it, you can order it from Play Asia.
Etrian Odyssey V was reviewed in Famitsu and has landed a 35/40 score with glowing praise for it’s character creation system.
The game was released this past week in Japan on August 4th, 2016 and can be ordered from the usual outlets. A collector’s edition is still available that’s a good deal more expensive but comes with a nice hardcover artbook, DLC and more.
A Western release has yet to be announced for the game. Hit the jump to read the reviews! Continue reading
