The latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals a new sub-class feature for Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2.
The adventurers you make through character creation can learn unique skills in each class. In Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2, a sub-class can be used concurrently with your main class. You can develop a character that specializes in attacks and support, or one that compensates for its weak points.
Two examples are shown in the magazine:
- Landsknecht main class, which specializes in close-range attacks, with a Runemaster sub-class, which specializes in long-range attacks through elemental magic. This turns the character into a powerful attacker regardles of distance.
- Hexer main class, which specializes at exploiting the enemy’s weakness, with a Paladin sub-class, who boasts of high defense. This also enables the character to equip a shield to cover its low defense.
Outside of the sub-class information, the magazine also features a new character named Nadica. She is a mysterious girl who calls herself a reporter and is fixated on getting to Yggdrasil.
Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 is due out for 3DS in Japan on August 31. If you missed it, catch the latest trailer here.
