Not anywhere
At a quick glance it looks like any Etrian Odyssey, I wonder why they kept this for so long (or they simply revealed it too early because there was an event).

i'm assuming they wanted to tell people that they not switching totally to mystery dungeon style, considering that the teaser was during EMD stream

Awesome, really hope we see it in EU before 2018. Having to wait so long so one of my best series is a killer.

The fact that they have a Niconico stream for the game announced and the guests are all VAs also confirms that this will be taking a EOU route with voice acting.

Lovely. The last regular EO game was released in 2012/2013, so it's good to have a new installment after all this time.

That's not necessarily bad... I love my talking shopkeeps.

Ok guys, just focus on EOIV so you can actually finish it in a timely manner before EOV's release. ;P

Strange that they didn't use the logo they used for the initial announcement. I'm on my phone, so I can't access the desktop site, but it was basically this without the ETRIAN ODYSSEY or 始動, and with everything else centered.



I honestly thought that they might be shaking things up more, but they're still using the original logo. Shame, because I was digging the Didone V.

And, just from low-quality screenshots, it looks like the battle and mapping UIs have been overhauled.

I saw a fish icon, maybe we're getting another overworld like the last 2 mainline games, also that new battle UI looks sweet.

本作では、キャラクターが就けるさまざまな職業も一新。キャラクターメイクの自由度はさらにアップ!
Someone else can verify, but it seems like the customization in character creation has been improved, as well.

Yeah, they're nicer because they take up less screen space, too. The old menus weren't ugly by any means, but were super utilitarian and cluttered. It looks like things are a lot less monochromatic, too.

Well that's exciting and explains why they took so long with this one. I wonder what it'll be like to have a traditional approach in there from scratch, it should help them make something a lot more interesting.

I hope they have the classic dungeon crawling mode still though, or I imagine some people will definitely not be happy about this.

Looking forward to picking this up! Wondering why they kept the console secret. The whole way they announced this was a bit odd, but I've been hyped anyways. More Etrian Odyssey is great!

It looks like P5 is either a July or September game, then.

this is good.

anyone else passed on all those remakes and spinn-offs?

I played I,II,III,IV at the time of release and finished them 100%,

I never had a need for remakes or anything, I am perfectly fine with one EO game every couple of years.

so V is going to be mine, and I will continue to ignore everything else

I am glad it's on 3DS, no need for new hardware

We should start a 'Let's play' thread to push one another to complete the games. For the record, I need to finish Untold 2 :(

Hasn't been a problem since Untold 1. Only exclusives in Untold 2 are Fafnir for story mode and Beast for classic mode.

That's nice to hear. Haven't gotten EOU2 yet since I still haven't gotten very far in EOU1.

It says the job classes will be brand new and that the character creator has a higher degree of freedom than before. What that actually means... we'll find out soon.

Oh, just saw this thread. Sweet, looks like more classic EO.

Strange that they didn't use the logo they used for the initial announcement. I'm on my phone, so I can't access the desktop site, but it was basically this without the ETRIAN ODYSSEY or 始動, and with everything else centered.

Maybe their initial concept was scrapped for something more traditional. That'll explain the long delay.

Oh man, I hope we get a quick localization I've been dying for more EO.
Will definitely buy a new 3DS if takes advantage of it.
After this we'll probably get Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold next year.
So excited

Aw yes, so soon! (well for Japan at least) If it does come out in Europe it'll probably be late 2017... I'm still powering my way through EOU2 (at the 5th Stratum already!) should have all the post game completed during the summer.

Looks to be a slight change to the character designs from previous games; they're more human-proportioned than they've ever been, that should please those that were put off by the exaggerated characters, it never bothered me but I am liking the new designs.

I think I've mentioned my wishes for this game many times already, but I'll state them again: I hope they included FM-versions of the soundtrack, I love that stuff. Also bring back the FOE orange unknown blob (even if it's just an option toggle), things feel scarier when I can't see what I'm about to face.
The map making improvements in PersonaQ were welcome, coloured icons (doors, event markers etc.) made detailed make making even better. I also loved the dungeon puzzle difficulty of PersonaQ. The Untold games seemed to be easier/ brain-dead in comparison. Keep it difficult, make me use those warp wires! Which brings me to my final point; Expert mode should disable floor jump, leave that shit to the casuals! It's still too tempting to use when I'm in a bad situation, so they should lock it out.
