Etrian Odyssey V Western Launch Set for October 17

Atlus has announced the release date for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth.

The latest in their long-running dungeon RPG franchise will launch for the Nintendo 3DS on October 17th in North America. A European release is confirmed for sometime this winter, via Deep Silver.

Featured above, a new trailer was shared, introducing the game’s playable fencer class. Here’s a rundown on the class:

It just wouldn’t be smart to traverse the Yggdrasil tree without someone who is pretty handy with a blade, so why not have an Earthlain Fencer watch your back when exploring? The Fencer is master of both rapier and shield, and let’s just say that during fights they really like to get straight to the point. Quick on their feet, Fencers excel at evasion, stabbing, initiating defensive buffs, stabbing, chaining together attacks with other party members, and stabbing. They can further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.
