Following its announcement last week, Atlus has released the first official information and screenshots of Etrian Odyssey X, its final 3DS entry in the dungeon RPG series.
Get the details below.
◆ Gather in the floating city “Maginia,” and aim for the treasure on the remote island of “Lemuria” in the distant sea.
“Etria, at the far east. High Lagaard, the northern kingdom. Armoroad, the seaside city. Tharsis, the farthest city. And adventurers of the vast expanse from nations all over the world. Gather in the floating city Maginia, and aim for the treasure on the remote island of Lemuria in the distant sea.”
Under the decree of Princess Persephone, adventurers seeking unknown treasure and honor gather in the floating city Maginia from nations all over the world.
◆ What is the legendary treasure left behind by the ancient civilization Lemuria?
Lemuria is an island said to be covered in thick clouds, and whose outskirts are always stormy. It was a long and difficult journey, but the adventurers that gathered on the floating city Maginia weathered the storm and landed on Lemuria. Their place of destination: the giant world tree, Yggdrasil. At the foot of this tree is supposed to be a legendary treasure left behind by the ancient civilization Lemuria. The fortune and honor sought by adventurers, and possibly unknown adventure lies dormant in Lemuria. Adventurers, Keep your pride in your heart, and move forward.
