Etrian Odyssey IV confirmed for 3DS

February 28, 2012

Japanese RPG fans rejoice, for the next installment in the popular Etrian Odyssey series has been confirmed for the Nintendo 3DS. The fourth game in the franchise, aptly titled Etrian Odyssey IV, will be hitting Japanese shelves on July the 5th.

According to Joystiq, the game will have an easier difficulty setting for players wanting to enjoy the story. It will also have seven different classes, including Medics, Sniper, Swordsmen and the rather unusual sounding Dancer class.

Although the previous DS games in the series have made it over to American shores, the 3DS is region-locked. Fingers crossed that it will be localised for PAL gamers.
