New Etrian Odyssey Game for 3DS Set for Spring 2018 Reveal, Isn’t Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold

Atlus has shared more details for their new Etrian Odyssey game planned for the Nintendo 3DS.

The news comes via their 10th anniversary broadcast (via r/EtrianOdyssey) for the series, where series director Shigeo Komori confirmed they’ll fully reveal their next Etrian Odyssey title for the 3DS in the spring of next year.

Komori also noted the new game isn’t Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold, instead its a cumulative release of the series, with lots of content, both new and things fans of the series can expect.

We’ll keep you guys posted.

    “Komori also noted the new game isn’t Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold”

    Well, fuck you too. There’s literally ONE game in the series not on 3DS and these assholes are intentionally leaving it that way.

    you mad bro.

    Isn’t it just Mystery Dungeon 2?

    Sounds good. This has been one of Atlus’ best series. Pity it likely won’t survive too far into the Switch era, but it was a fun ride while it lasted.

    Kind of sad it isn’t Untold 3, especially since the original never came to Europe.

    But oh well, I’ll take any mainline Etrian Odyssey I can get.

    Nintendo really needs a new DS system out. I still say that there is a market for a dedicated handheld gaming system, which the Switch (while portable) is ill-fit to fulfill.

  • Mr. Capo

    Blame the DLC fuckery with 2 Untold.

    Nah. Consolidating their development resources on one platform was the best idea they had in years. Switch works well enough as a handheld for that crowd to transition over in time.

    I wouldn’t write off a smaller, handheld-oriented model of the Switch coming out at some point, but there’s no way Nintendo is going to compete with itself and split its base again.

    I won’t lie, though: even though I wasn’t mad about the dual-screen setup, it was PERFECT for certain series. Etrian Odyssey being a prime example.

    I don’t get this “Nintendo competing with itself” logic. Because let’s say Nintendo does release a DS successor and it has a killer game for it like Breath of the Wild was for the Switch. So consumers who want a portable system will either buy a Switch (Nintendo makes money) or a “4DS” (Nintendo makes money) or they decide to buy both (Nintendo makes MORE money). How is Nintendo losing out by releasing a new DS system?

  • 3ds is dead at this point.

    I’ll pick this series up when they let me use dual audio.

    >works well enough as a handheld for that crowd to transition over in time
    HA
    Yeah no, they’ll actually need to either lower the price drastically or release an actual handheld version. The Switch is 330$ where I live (with tax included) and that’s with NO games, and considering that the prices are triple-A for what they’re offering… Yeah fuck that shit.
    Not only that but the Switch is the opposite of portable for a handheld. The 3DS XL and the Vita was already pushing it in terms of handheld size but the Switch is just absurd.
    On top of this it also doesn’t even have something as basic as backwards compatibility with the 3DS library, why the hell would anyone with a 3DS ever transition or sell their 3DS to get a switch. It doesn’t have an established library of its own yet either.
    Not only this but the handheld crowd tends to get vastly different games from the console crowd. Its an entirely different demographic and Nintendo has done *almost* nothing to advertise to the handheld crowd outside of stuff like Hollow Knight (a game that you’d expect to be on a handheld because of its style) and other ports like it. Its been a slew of games that non-handheld gamers are accustomed to.

    I’m considering getting a Switch at some point in the future if SMT V and the new Fire Emblem actually turns out well but I am definitely not considering it a “handheld” by any stretch of the imagination.
