Atlus teaches you how to make a map in Etrian Odyssey III

Recommended Videos

You may have heard that I’m already deep into the dungeons of Etrian Odyssey III, playing it for review. I liken this game to crack for its addictiveness, and that can be attributed an odd combination of features and my own personal tastes. I really like dungeon crawlers, for one. I also love the game’s steady and stern difficulty level. Those alone would be odd in the eyes of many. But I also like drawing maps. EO3 lets me do all of that at the same time.

This game will rope in and tie down any of the obsessive set. If you’re like me you’ll quickly find yourself drawn into making the best map possible. I get into it so much that I forget I’m supposed to be dungeon crawling. My maps are meticulous and lovely. I wish there was a DS printer so that I could print them out and admire them.

Atlus video shows you the basics of map making in Etrian Odyssey III. You’ll draw walls, drop icons, and even lay paths, on both land and sea. I hear some of you saying that you didn’t sign up for cartography as a gamer. I hear you, but know that it’s pretty rewarding once you get into it.

Get your Rand McNally on this September 21st. Pre-order at places like Amazon and GameStop and you’ll get the lovely Forest of Eternity art book for free.
