Atlus launched a new trailer for the dungeon crawler RPG Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, coming to Nintendo 3DS on October 17 in North America, European date still “to be announced”.
The trailer introduces the Therian Masurao class, a playable character class to add to the party during exploration. This class excels at slicing the enemy using Japanese swords. They can also play multiple roles in the battle party, but by being placed on the frontline they’ll be able to launch attacks hitting multiple enemies or target a single enemy with a powerful strike.
Additionally, they can use their New Challenger skill to lure rare enemies into combat which provides better loot as well as more experience. However, these battles aren’t going to be easy so be prepared. The Masurao class can be equipped to learn either the sword or blade, but over time it’s possible to become a master using all the sword types available.
In Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth players will be able to explore the Yggdrasil tree with their created party of explorers as the ascend the levels and map out their adventure in true Etrian series fashion. It’s said that at the top the tree there is a power to fulfill someone’s greatest wish, but it’s not that easy. There are many bosses, enemies, and other adventures that the player will encounter on their way up.
