If you live in North America, today is the day for you to grab Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth for Nintendo 3DS. And developer/publisher Atlus Games is celebrating that launch with a good, old-fashioned launch trailer, as well as a new Nintendo 3DS theme coming free-of-cost.
The launch trailer, seen below, gives a very brief overview of the game, including the standalone title’s background, customization options, battle layout, and the series’ signature map-making feature. Also heard in the trailer are some brief soundbites of the Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth‘s fantastic score by Yuzo Koshiro which makes the title swell.
Additionally, below the trailer is a quick screen of the new Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth theme for Nintendo 3DS. Available today in North America and at the launch of the game in Europe, the top screen shows off some of the character classes while the bottom screen showcases the mythical tree Yggdrasil. As like any other theme for Nintendo 3DS, you should be able to find it immediately on the Nintendo eShop.
For those out of the loop, Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth is the latest in the dungeon-crawling, map making series and (like the predecessors) is its own standalone story. DualShockers reviewed Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, awarding it an 8.0 out of 10 and noted it “is one of the best Nintendo 3DS games you will play this Fall.”
As mentioned above, Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth launches exclusively on Nintendo 3DS today in North Amerca and Europe. Check out the trailer and free theme below:
