Etrian Odyssey's latest likely a 3DS title.

Etrian Odyssey V

Atlus announced Etrian Odyssey V back in November 2014 without a platform. The studio said in January that the game is in its final stages of development, but Atlus still hasn’t announced its platform.

A new Atlus survey that went live today might have confirmed the game’s platform. In one of the questions, it lists Etrian Odyssey V as a 3DS title:

A release window for Etrian Odyssey V is still to be announced, but we should start getting information when the weather warms up, according to Atlus.

    Whoever thought this game was moved to NX should’ve known better. Like with new platforms nowadays that starts with a userbase from 0 publishers won’t bite until there is a decent userbase.

    • quodvadis

      Publishers with franchises that have millions userbase all did that during the transition of the home console this gen.

      It’s only handheld market that has uncertain future that might be like that.

        Actually I’m pretty sure it’s Nintendo’s home console market that’s the most uncertain at the moment.
        Wii U is a complete failure. Its only support comes from Nintendo themselves and indies. Once Nintendo moves onto NX it’ll be dead and right now consumer trust in Nintendo is extremely low.

        • quodvadis

          Handheld isn’t doing well either. Userbase has shrunk very greatly from the days of DS and PSP.

          • LightZero

            The DS is a monster. I doubt there will be any system that will sell as well as the DS and PS2 did for a long while. Not selling as well as the DS is nothing to be a shame of. The 3DS is still doing very well for itself despite the rise in smart phones. It is a success just not the DS level of success. The Vita was the only one that flopped but that more to do with Sony screwing things up.

            • quodvadis

              It’s the lowest selling Nintendo handheld, but eh, okay. And sure, Vita’s flop is all Sony’s fault too lol.

  • Mozendo

    I don’t think this is a surprise to anyone.
    The series has always been handheld exclusive which makes sense since the genre is now more popular on handhelds as opposed to home consoles.

    Experience Inc is the only developer this console gen still supporting home consoles, but that’s just to support the Xbox brand in Japan. Maybe ZeroDiv will go back to creating some first person dungeon crawlers on home consoles like last gen

  • Fighunter

    Is the survey site down or something?

    Look at those lone 3DS titles in a sea of Playstation.
    Also those 3 Xbox games on the side???

  • Mohammed Allha

    This franchise need to find a new console the 3ds is holding it back !!! Or just make on the new 3ds

    • natchu96

      So you expect a niche franchise to be sold on a platform with a lower install base instead of the one that’s worked fine so far, and has been around for long enough that everyone even remotely interested in Nintendo games probably has?

      Yeah, that’s not gonna happen. It’s not like EO actually has anything necessary that would be improved by high performance anyhow.

    • Glittering Crux

      The game is made specifically for the 3DS hardware’s feature set. Until another platform with an accurate touchscreen comes out, that’s not happening. There’s the Wii U, but there is no way they would willingly miss out on 3DS sales for it.

      • An Tran

        There’s the Wii U. Of course the Wii U is a commercial failure, but it can still host an EO game with its control setup.

      • Mohammed Allha

        Than they need to make on the new 3ds

        • Glittering Crux

          What would that accomplish besides alienating a portion of its user base? The resolution will still be 240p and frame rate has never been a concern in EO games. Have you played any of the games in the series?

          • Mohammed Allha

            Yeah and I liked it but it would better if it was in 3d not 2d

            • Glittering Crux

              The 3DS games are in 3D.

        • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP16noYFeThFrJa2JVFw2IA Otaku DJK1NG (YouTube)

          it’s probably why the platform isn’t announced yet. It probably is New 3DS exclusives. They probably was just hesitating about the decision.

    • Hexodious

      It’s not even holding it back by a long shot, it’s intended from start to finish a Old School First Person Dungeon Crawler franchise, hell even the DS could make it possible to run their 3DS games if they wanted to

      That isn’t that hard to grasp, really

      What does it say??

      • kudostoyou

        basically a survey asking where do you want the next SMT game,ps4,vita,3ds or worse mobile

        • MetalRizeAwesomeOnmipenismon

          Ohhh thanks senpai

  • Hearthwing

    Etrian is fantastic, we need more 3DS games. Especially SMT. Localize Final!!!!

  • Joey

    If this is true (which it most likely is), this will be a perfect excuse to get another 3DS title. Etrian Odyssey is SO good.

  • Rain

    What is it with Japanese developers and announcing their games way too fucking early? Final Fantasy XV, Legend of Zelda U, Kingdom Hearts 3, The Last Guardian, Etrian Odyssey V, Xenoblade Chronicles X etc. They really need to stop this.

    • natchu96

      Hey, I’d think FFXV is in a whole different league than Etrian Odyssey V when it comes to being announced too early :P

      • Rain

        Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Dragon Quest XI, Final Fantasy VII…Square is satan.

    • Fighunter

      This doesn’t really fit Atlus right now. Sure Persona 5 is an issue. But when they announced SMT4Final they said they want to make sure to announce games late from now on so no delays happen. And just look, SMT4 Final was announced and released in almost 6 months time.

      • Rain

        I know, there’s a reason i didn’t mention publishers by name, just examples of games that got ridiculous announcement/release situations.

  • Claude

    This is my shocked face.

  • Bianca Ann Saracino

    I first got into the etrian odyssey series with EO4 millennium girl and absolutely loved it and it pretty much sparked my love for dungeon crawlers and I’ve bought EO2Untold, the EO dungeon game, persona q and a whole bunch other. Looking forward to this game now ^_^

  • marineal

    3DS Swan Song. I’m Calling it.

    • LightZero

      Oh please the 3DS will have plenty of games that will be coming out after EOV. I still expect EO3U will be next. I still hope they will do a Devil Survivor 3 soon.

  • Red

    You mean it isn’t going to be a AAA PS4 game running Unreal Engine 4? Damn.

  • Zeria

    I doubt we’ll see this in EU territories until about a year after the US does…

  • DesmaX

    Didn’t they already announce this?
