Stop the presses.
We don't need your Persona Q bullshit or your Knight of Fanfir story mode faggotry. We just need sweet, sweet...
Okay. Atlus announced a collaboration with Spike Chunsoft today, with Atlus developing. Etrian Odyssey: Mystery Dungeon looks to be exactly what you'd expect, but damn do those environments look comfy. Also announced was Etrian Odyssey V... finally. Nothing but a teaser video, but we will surely see some more information within the next few weeks given the state of their teaser website.
EO:MD is slated for a March 5, 2015 launch in Japan. That's all we know about so far. What do you think, /v/? Does EO:MD sound like an interesting concept? How about potential hopes/fears for EOIV?
>EO and MD coming
>Persona Q coming soon
>Persona 5 coming
>Persona 4 Arena Ultimax arrived today
>got SMT4 just month ago
>Break Record in 2015
>SMT x Fire Emblem right on schedule
gosh it feels so good to be fat
God, I hope we get some info in the January Nintendo Direct. The wait is fucking killing me.
Anyway, the teaser picture of EOV looks pretty interesting. How do you think they're going to handle progression? Something akin to Airships, like in EOIV? Or back the traditional menu-based exploration?
I hope for an EOIV-like exploration system, personally. Really liked the cave/labyrinth balance, felt that it gave some variety.
As for EO:MD, the only MD game I've ever played was Pokemon MD: Blue Rescue and I didn't really like the stamina model of that game. Is that a staple in most MD titles?
Jesus CHRIST i'am happy.
Made my day a happy day.
I love the original Shiren the Wanderer and EO so
I'm disappointed to be yuropeon.
they are still two games that are going to play very similar.
and even if they have different teams, do they really need two teams making what are basically the almost same game?
>Shiren the Wanderer/Ar Tornelico type of "rogue-lite" and first-person dungeon-crawler are very similar
Yeah, like Morrowind is practically Metal Gear if you think about it, right?
Not to mention the releases will probably be around year from each other.
Mystery Dungeon is a roguelike, it won't be similar to main EO at all. Besides, MD is almost finished and EOV is a long way off. Most likely the team that just finished making EOU2 started working on this only now and that bg concept is all they have to show so far.
It'd be really cool if they straight up mixed everything together. Make a main dungeon that goes through all 25-30 floors with side caves to explore. Just have the airship gain a new height every 5 floors and put something in one of the caves that you need to unlock some important door in the next strata.
Build out to go in deeper.
Well there's Nocturne/Persona Team and Maniax Team for SMT. Pretty sure Devil Survivor has it's own staff as well. And then there's the folk that makes Etrian Odyssey.
Most of the spin-offs are at least partially made by external teams, Intelligent Systems for SMTxFE, Arc System works for Persona 4 Arena etc.
>OH NO ETRIAN IS FINISHED
EOU2 is gold, coming out in three days
EO5 is being done by the main team and has no aimed date
EOMD is being done by both a smaller subteam at Atlus as well as the MD team at Spike Chunsoft.
This isn't milking
Why? What'd be so bad about a multiplat?
I could get why you'd hate an EO only for the Vita, but hey. Multiplats are fine
Nah, touch-screen map drawing sounds awful on the Vita, it has no concept of precision.
I'm very happy new EO is coming out and i really loved how Atlus didn't fucked EO fanbase over with Untold containing almost untouched, polished and upgraded remake of the original game on top of new story mode. It's fucking awesome win/win situation.
Honestly, are just fucking bitter human that hates videogames? What's fucking wrong with good series growing and getting recognition and spin-offs? That is, unless main-series isn't forgotten. And it isn't so far, so all's good.
I bought EO4 cause I needed to package something with another item for amazon's free shipping
It doesnt look that good, but w/e. might be fun.
How much am I missing by not playing the rest of the series first?
NEW ETRIAN ODYSSEY?
Post your favorite class niggas
Chances are that whole year of "absolutely nothing" is them actually working on the game. They're focusing more on making it good than pumping out fancy videos and news releases for you to ogle. Be patient.
Not missing much, EO4 is very light on bullshit. Only other I've played is EO3 and you need a bit of tolerance for its terrible gathering system.(EO3 still favorite and well worth your time if you like 4)
I do suggest trying to find what the actual values are on skills since EO games are terrible at helping you weigh skills against one another.(a skill might increase damage by 5% while another 10% for investing 5 skill points)
>All this hype for Underage Panty Quest: Wizardry ripoff Edition
Excellent. Used to lurk around the EO general on /vg/, good to see it's still alive there.
Now if only Atlus would bring back the other series it had introduced last generation, Trauma Center.
It just wouldn't work as well on the vita. The whole point is to have the map right there, easily accessible at all times. If you have it on the vita, you have to now dedicate a new option on the fight screen to go to the map to see if any FOE are coming toward you and when.
Since, for me, Etrian Odyssey was one of the best games released on NDS, I cant really express how happy I am to hear that after Sega grip on Atlus, this series is still alive.
Along with EO IV, this would give me 3 reasons to buy 3DS. 4 if I would count Untold (but I dont really like the idea of forced party) and 5 if Rune Factory 4 will finally receive EU release.
Maybe I should finally buy this whole 3DS...
