Etrian Odyssey IV’s First Seven Classes Detailed
Atlus is making Etrian Odyssey IV for the Nintendo 3DS and so far seven classes have been revealed. Rune Masters are experts at attacking enemies with elemental attributes while Medics are recovery specialists. Snipers are essentially archers and attack enemies from afar. The Swordsman class specializes in cutting up commanding officers and Fortress acts as an iron wall defending the party. Dancers are support units.
Etrian Odyssey IV looks similar to other games in the series, but director Daisuke Kanada wants this title to be more accessible. He added a casual mode to the game and players can toggle between normal or casual difficulty at any time. Kanada believes newcomers and busy gamers can enjoy dungeon crawling and cartography in casual mode. Because they created casual mode, Kanada raised the level of difficulty in normal mode.
Etrian Odyssey IV comes out on July 5 in Japan.
