Today, some more news was put up at the official site
The cover art:
You'll also notice that the date was pushed to April 1, 2010.
BUT, the real treat here, keeping in Etrian tradition, is the promotional soundtrack that comes with the ...uh, pre-order of the game, I think. I don't know for sure, you look that up, but here is the beautiful artwork from the character designer of the series, Yuji Himukai
This album isn't the "official" soundtrack, that will likely come at a later date (along with a "Super Arrange" releases if the past taught us anything). No, no, no, these are recordings of tracks before they are put in the game by Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Misty Blue).
