Etrian Odyssey IV will be getting a brand new sound


Composer Yuzo Koshiro's incredibly memorable themes have been one of my favorite things about the Etrian Odyssey series over the years. In addition to crafting great melodies, however, Koshiro has always been one to please fans by presenting each of the game's soundtracks in both their native Nintendo DS and retro FM synthesis formats, the latter of which has always been a real treat.

While I've always skipped over the NDS version of the soundtrack in favor of the retro FM synthesis one, it looks like that may change with Etrian Odyssey IV. Three samples have been posted to the game's official Japanese website showing off an incredibly polished sound that Koshiro has confirmed to us will feature live session players and will not include a PC/FM version this time around. While this is somewhat of a bummer, I really can't get enough of the three samples provided, which are in line with the Live Music by Piano and Strings Super Arrange Version CD that was released a few years back.

Hit up the Japanese Etrian Odyssey IV website to check out the samples and tell us if the moody second track and the clean pop-flavored third track don't have you excited about this soundtrack.
