NIS America (NISA) has stated that Nintendo 3DS Etrian Mystery Dungeon will soon be delisted from the European Nintendo eShop; one of the last places it is available digitally in English.
“A note to our European fans,” NISA stated in a tweet. “Etrian Mystery Dungeon will be removed from Nintendo eShop Europe on 30 Sept. You can still pick up this title as part of the End of Summer Sale, so make sure you get it before the sale ends on 20 Sept!”
The game launched in 2015, combining Atlus’ Etrian Odyssey series with the gameplay of Spike Chunsoft’s Mystery Dungeon series. Using classes from Etrian Odyssey, players explore randomly generated dungeons fulled with monsters and traps. Players also build up a nearby town’s defenses for when creatures break out of the dungeon.
In earlier news, NISA de-listed several games from the Danganronpa on the PlayStation Store, as the publishing rights were being transferred to developer Spike Chunsoft. As Spike Chunsoft are one of the developers of Etrian Mystery Dungeon, it seems they are reclaiming more IP publishing rights from NISA. No such announcement has been made however.
As reported by Silicon Era, the game has already been delisted in US and Australian Nintendo eShops. The game still remains on the Japanese eShop.
You can find the full rundown (via Nintendo) below.
Combining Etrian Odyssey’s deeply customisable RPG elements with the randomised challenges of the Mystery Dungeon series, Etrian Mystery Dungeon invites you on a new kind of adventure, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS family systems.
Join the many aspiring adventurers passing through the mountain town of Aslarga in pursuit of its infamous mystery dungeons. Start a guild of your very own and stock it with characters that you create. Choose your companions from over 10 different classes from the Etrian Odyssey series including Landsknecht, Gunner, Medic, Ninja and more.
Lead your ragtag band of explorers into the depths of twisted, complex and infinitely random labyrinths filled with glorious loot, all guarded by swathes of monsters dwelling within each floor. No two visits to a mystery dungeon are ever the same: the layout, monsters, traps and treasures change every time you enter. You may even encounter shops or face off against hordes of enemies in a single room during each expedition!
Everything you do while in the dungeon counts as a turn, so tread carefully! Pick the best party formation and skills in combat, or risk falling in battle and losing your money and belongings. One move can make all the difference, so equip your team with the necessary abilities to take on any unexpected surprises. Use powerful Blast Skills that can help your party in a pinch: build up your Blast Gauge to take control of your entire party and unleash devastating attacks!
With bountiful shops, inns, restaurants and plenty of helpful services, Aslarga is the perfect hub for weary adventurers to unwind and prepare for their next descent. The townsfolk are more than happy to aid your excursions: after all, brave explorers are the only ones who can protect their quaint town from the threat of huge powerful boss monsters intent on destruction. When one of these beasts breaks free, it’s up to you and your party to put up a fight to protect Aslarga! Build a fort in a dungeon to fix its overall structure, track the boss’ movement and create a line of defence.
