Are you prepared for the challenges that await in the Mystery Dungeons? Etrian Mystery Dungeon (EMD), the rogue-like RPG for the Nintendo 3DS system is available in retail stores and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS beginning today for $39.99. Mixing Etrian Odyssey’s vast party and skill customization aspects and Mystery Dungeon’s infinitely random dungeon adventures, Etrian Mystery Dungeon balances methodical turn-based fighting with vibrant dungeon exploration.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that EMD’s cheery demeanor makes it a simple game. Combat requires players to constantly think about using the correct skills, as well as strategic positioning. Take up to four of the game’s ten character classes into the dungeons to complete quests, find awesome loot along the way, and if you’re lucky, make it out alive.
Etrian Mystery Dungeon offers infinite dungeons to explore. Incorporating the random map feature, the floors change every venture into each dungeon’s dark depths.
Following its Etrian Odyssey heritage, Etrian Mystery Dungeon offers a large amount of party customization. Each of the game’s 10 character classes have unique skill trees that players can customize to their heart’s content.
Being a tactics-heavy RPG, Etrian Mystery Dungeon‘s combat is not something to be careless with. Rooms are filled with dangerous enemies, and being 100 percent certain in your comrade’s skills and abilities is a necessity if you wish to make it out alive. Get what you need, slay what you must, and get out. Do not hesitate, or it may be the last mistake you make…
Etrian Mystery Dungeon is available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system for $39.99. Available in the launch edition of Etrian Mystery Dungeon, the “Sights & Sounds of Mystery” bonus is a special prize reserved only for the most impassioned of explorers. It comes in an exclusive collectible outer box that contains a limited edition CD-book package. The “Rough Sketch Ver.” soundtrack CD contains six “rough” versions of the musical themes found in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The 28-page book contains art and information to aid you in cultivating the best party to help you triumph inside the mystery dungeons.
The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
