Etrian Odyssey V is coming to Nintendo 3DS on October 17 and will come with a pretty cool launch edition for those early adopters who purchase the game. The launch edition will include a 24-page art book, a 6-track CD sampler featuring music by Yuzo Koshiro, and a fancy outer shell for the game. In addition to confirming a release date, Atlus also revealed a new class for the dungeon crawler, the Fencer!
It just wouldn’t be smart to traverse the Yggdrasil tree without someone who is pretty handy with a blade, so why not have an Earthlain Fencer watch your back when exploring? The Fencer is master of both rapier and shield, and let’s just say that during fights they really like to get straight to the point. Quick on their feet, Fencers excel at evasion, stabbing, initiating defensive buffs, stabbing, chaining together attacks with other party members, and stabbing. They can further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.
Later today at 2:00 PM PST/5:00 PM EST, Atlus will be live streaming Etrian Odyssey IV on the Atlus Twitch page, which you can check out here.
