Atlus Announces Etrian Odyssey III
DS-based RPG to set sail in March.
12.09.09 - 12:06 PM

Atlus is working on a new addition to its popular Sekaiju no Meikyuu (Etrian Odyssey in the US) series. Titled Sekaiju no Meikyuu III: Seikai no Raihousha (Etrian Odyssey III: Visitors to Star Ocean), the DS-based title will support DS wireless play and up to five players. As suggested by the game's subtitle, the developers chose an ocean as a setting for the game.

Talking about developers, Atlus has once again assembled the key figures behind the first two games by bringing back Shigeo Komori (direction), Yuji Himukai (character design), Shin Nagasawa (monster design) and Yuuzou Koshiro (music).

For the third game, all job classes and character illustrations are being renewed. New jobs include prince/princess, phalanx, monk, pirate and shinobi.

Sekaiju no Meikyuu III: Seikai no Raihousha is scheduled to hit Japanese retail store shelves on March 4th, carrying a suggested price tag of 6,279 yen ($70.70 USD).
