I will repost the discussion in the topic of the game:

Just got an e-mail from Play Asia advertising this game with an english title of Etrian Mystery Dungeon and logo, claiming it's the NA version of the game.

Link

Well, seems quite legit. English screens too.

Description:
Far off in the mountains, the small village Aslarga becomes a hub for adventurers looking for fame and fortune from the Mystery Dungeons. But dire challenges await even the most stalwart adventurers in Etrian Mystery Dungeon, a turn-based action RPG roguelike developed by ATLUS and Spike Chunsoft. The Nintendo 3DS™ exclusive mixes Etrian Odyssey’s vast RPG party and skill customization aspects, and Mystery Dungeon’s infinitely random dungeon adventures. There’s no hand-holding in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The action/turn based combat means that battling monsters is not just about using the right skills, but becomes an elegant Pas de Quatre of strategic positioning. Players form their parties with familiar Etrian Odyssey classes, such as Landsknecht and Runemaster, customize individuals using Etrian-style skill trees, and then take up to four members into the dungeons. Always randomized with various levels and paths, the dungeons require plenty of exploration, not to mention the incredible loot rewards -- just be wary of what waits among the deepest depths.

Features:
  • Infinite Dungeons to Explore - Etrian Mystery Dungeon incorporates the random map feature, which changes the floor terrain each time a player enters the dungeon. This core mechanic, inherited from the Mystery Dungeon series, challenges the players with a new maze and stronger monsters every time, offering them unlimited replayability!
  • Attention to Detail - The Etrian Odyssey tradition of party customization is in full effect for Etrian Mystery Dungeon. After the first journey as a Landsknecht, players can freely choose their party of 4 from up to 10 different class types. While each class has a unique skill set of its own, characters can also unlock new skills through skill trees
  • Not Your Grandfather’s Combat - The unique perspective in Etrian Mystery Dungeon means that special care will have to be given when selecting party members and upgrading their abilities. With dungeons chock full of enemies and all the loot and money collected at stake, being 100 percent certain in your party’s abilities is crucial for making it out alive

Guess this was a given but nice to see it confirmed. Now, the question is how long I (as an EU citizen) must wait to play it.

Hoping for a quick turnaround from NA to PAL release like with Persona Q. Hoping it's standard procedure from now on with Atlus releases.

What has been the hold up before anyway in the past?

Atlus translates everything for the west. I still can't believe they're actually localizing Persona 4 Dancing.

Bless you Atlus.

Sorry Europe :(

I suppose they'll confirm this, EOU2 and EOV for the West in the same day (it was theorized by another poster back when EOV was announced).

And that poster was... me! :p

I'll also add a bonus: wouldn't be surprised if they also announced localisation for Devil Survivor 2 : Break Record. Atlus USA did tease it in their New-Year greeting card, many months ago.

Now the question is: when are they going to announce all that? Pretty soon, if Play-Asia got their hand on English screens and press material.

If this is getting localized then EOU2 and EOV are guarantees, though I had no doubt those two would come here in the first place. Really glad about EMD, though.

Edit:

I trust it will happen, but still, please bring it here Atlus!

Hey, it's not Amazon.ca for once. I guess "Etrian Mystery Dungeon" is a good enough name that incorporates both series.
Well, anyway, looking forward to it.

Looking forward to playing this next year! If they already have screens, maybe it'll be a simul-release?!

It's amusing to see this so hastily shown in English and yet Square-Enix can't figure out how to localize Bravely Default or Dragon Quest.

I am assuming Mar 2015 is a place holder date?! That would be a super quick localization if true

Looks like it, though my money is on March 5 in Japan, late march in NA.
October 2015 in Europe :3

That's exactly what it is.

My condolences to all suffering Atlus fans in Europe. :(

Ha ha, it could be much worse. I mean, all games are pretty much guaranteed to come out here (unlike during the DS era... hello EO2 and 3!). And Persona Q did come out 3 days after the NA.

Things are improving, and hopefully it's not just a one-off thing.

is this a rogue-like etrian odyssey?

It's a Mystery Dungeon game (like Shiren, Torneko, and Pokemon Dungeon) in an EO setting with EO characters and classes, etc. Mystery Dungeon is a Japanese rogue-like franchise with its own quirks.

Woohoo! Although that logo looks weird. The gradient and path of the "Mystery Dungeon" text is kinda amateurish.

I edited in the product details and descriptions from the English listing to the OP. Might be helpful for those unfamiliar with what this is.

she's the shopkeep for the game?

sweet

uhh oh yeah the localization, pls be true

I made a thread about new details a little while ago. Her name's Risley.

Yeah, not really a fan of the hand-drawn letters in "Etrian," and I think the E in "Dungeon" could be moved a little.

Maybe they could've gone with an old-style or transitional serif to complement the humanist sans-serif in the subtitle? Though I won't be looking at the logo that much, anyway.

Day One.

Love Etrian Odyssey and like Mystery Dungeon. Probably as excited about this as I was about Fire Emblem in 2013. Late winter/early spring is rpg season.

They don't call Sekaiju no Meikyuu "Etrian Odyssey" in Japan, do they?

I thought we knew this was coming the second we saw that in the trailer.
