Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth Trailer Introduces Fencer Class

European publisher Deep Silver, via ATLUS, have today released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming dungeon-crawler styled JPRG Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth which is being released onto the Nintendo 3DS later this year.

This latest gameplay trailer highlights the ‘Fencer’ class of warrior; a warrior class designed to offer both fast attacks and a strong defence. Fencer class warriors can also further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.

Key Features:

  • A Choose-your-own-odyssey Feel – Starting with the creation of your party to exploring the uncharted labyrinth of the Yggdrasil Tree, Beyond the Myth is all about choosing how your own adventure unfolds. Test your survival skills by wisely navigating the winding floors of Yggdrasil, using shrewd tactics when battling gruesome beasts, making the right decisions during various “scenarios,” and more. To meet these challenges, the home base city of Iorys is ready for all your buying/selling, recruiting, and information-gathering needs!
  • Gameplay Fit for a True Pathfinder – It wouldn’t be an Etrian Odyssey game without the life-or-death need to map your progress. For those new to the series, the bottom screen of the 3DS displays a top-down, tile-based map that must be filled out while dungeon crawling. Players can use the map to mark the locations of treasures, doors, enemies, environmental obstructions, and more. Expect the unexpected at every turn—and then make a note on the map so it’s not so unexpected next time!
  • Epic Turn-based Battles – There’s a reason why no one has ever reached the top of Yggdrasil. Dangerous creatures and utterly terrifying FOEs—high-level mini-bosses, for you newcomers—roam the labyrinth on every floor, so prepare to test your mettle with challenging turn-based battles. Proper planning is a must and balancing strong party composition is absolutely crucial for success. You’ll need the right team to unleash Union Attacks and level the playing field!
  • Expanded Character Creation and Customization – With four unique races, 10 distinct classes, more customization options than any previous game in the franchise, and a streamlined skill tree/class advancement, you can shape a party to whatever your heart desires.
  • Magical Art Style and Score – Longtime series illustrator Yuji Himukai and renowned composer Yuzo Koshiro return to add their signature magic to the art and music in the game.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond The Myth is expected to be released later this year onto the Nintendo 3DS in both digital and physical forms; those who purchase the physical version of the game will also receive a 24-page artbook featuring various artwork from the game.
