Etrian Odyssey goes Rogue in Mystery Dungeon for 3DS!

Etrian Odyssey is getting the Spike Chunsoft Mystery Dungeon treatment! Play as characters from the Etrian Odyssey games in a rogue-like dungeon RPG!


Nintendo 3DS™ [Turn Based, Dungeon RPG, Rogue-like]

If you are unfamiliar with the Mystery Dungeon series the basic formula is adding the characters from a popular franchise into a game built around exploring a dungeon with randomly generated layouts and fighting other characters via turn-based combat. Every time players perform an action such as attacking or walking, the opponents will also take action.

Five known classes will be available in Etrian Mystery Dungeon, each taken from the Etrian Odyssey universe to fit into your standard RPG roles. Players will be able to enter dungeons with four different classes.

First up are the Protectors, the paladins and tanks of the Etrian Odyssey world, who's ability to take large amounts of damage and disrupt enemies positions is unrivaled. 

Next up are the Landsknecht, who make their appearance in the game as damage powerhouses with the ability to rush into battle. Although still fighting in close quarters the Landsknecht is not a very effective tank.

Runemasters are the ranged casters, able to deal direct damage from afar or apply ailements and debuffs to your enemies. Your magic-user is a bit of a wuss though, as she won't be survive long unprotected.

Medics are your staple healers and will be required to keep your party healthy! They can heal up all the party members in the area as well as cure any afflications. Medics can dish out some afflictions of their own, but with limited effectiveness.

Another addition to the roster is the 'Furai', or 'Wanderer' class which looks like it is heavily influenced by Shiren The Wanderer, an original character from the Mystery Dungeon series.
