Sure, Atlus may have had good news for its Vita-owning and fighting game-playing constituents, but what about the 3DS owners?! Where’s the love for them?! It’s right here, because they’ve just announced that dungeon cartography game Etrian Odyssey IV will be on the DS-Triple in July. Actually, the game was announced quite some time ago (even before Devil Survivor Overclocked), but we now know its full name: Etrian Odyssey IV: The Legendary Giant.
In addition to the full name, Famitsu revealed that key staffers will return, including Director Daisuke Kaneda, background artist Nizou Yamamoto, monster designer Shin Nasagawa, sound designer Yuzo Koshiro, and most importantly, character designer Yuji Himukai, who will doubtless provide much adorable character art for gamers to imagine being slaughtered by F.O.E.s (artist’s impression below). Also, the game will for the first time be including adjustable difficulty settings for gamers who like mapping dungeons more than dying horribly in them.
