New Etrian Odyssey Will Crawl Its Way To 3DS In June

By Spencer . March 26, 2013 . 12:13am

Update: More details on New Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Maiden are now available. You can read about the game here.


imageSure, Atlus just released Etrian Odyssey IV in North America, but in Japan the game came out on July 5… huh so Japan is getting a new Etrian Odyssey game in less than a year. New Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl is slated for release on June 27 for Nintendo 3DS.


We’re waiting for more details and will share them when they leak online. By the way, if you have Etrian Odyssey IV you can grab QR codes for a special quest and the Third Eye item right here.

    the katakana reads “mireniam”, so it’s “Millennium Girl” or something like that, I think.

  • SolidusSnake

    Damn that’s awesome, I’m still finishing Etrian IV but I’m sure I’ll be hungry again for some dungeon crawling action with my party of cute girls by the time the new one’s out.

  • Lazulis

    Oh. Ohhhh. And I thought my wallet would be safe…

    • It is never safe. A bittersweet reality that is.
      Shut up and take my money :<

      Thank god this is coming to EU!!! EO was awesome!!!!

    • Yeah, time to get 4 for EU.

  • Word on the street is that it’s going to be a remake of the first game.

    I just received EOIV today, but this will actually push me towards buying a 3DS… as opposed to borrowing one. heh.

  • The title is actually ミレニアムの少女; that’s almost certainly “Millenium Girl”. Definitely not Mieniam. Shot of Famitsu here:

    Still excited for the prospect of EO1 with all the little improvements from EO4, though.

    • Did a quick google around in moonrunes for the announcement, and found that the title was wrong too.

      The full title seems to be: 新・世界樹の迷宮 ミレニアムの少女
      In romanized form: shin sekaiju no meikyuu mireniamu no shoujo

      How do I type? (Typos)

      • The “新・世界樹の迷宮” is in the screen I posted, I just left it off because it’s obvious. :V And the kana you posted is “mireniamu”, actually (with the caveat that “mu” is basically used/pronounced as a lone “m” in this case); it’s definitely “millenium”.

        • Oops, I think I caused a misunderstanding here, I had meant to say that your finding -is- correct.

          And yes, that was my mistype, sorry.

    • Fixed. I just looked at the usual sources and you’re right. Spencer must have written this up while the info was still leaking. Thanks. :)

  • Apparently, the game is called ‘Shin Sekaiju No Meikyuu: Mireniamu no Shoujo’, of which the ‘Shin’ would imply a similar reboot as Shin Megami Tensei in 1991 (after two Megami Tensei’s on Famicom). Rumour is that it is a remake of the first Sekaiju No Meikyuu, but with voice acting.

  • Barrylocke89

    Wow, that’s…fast. Although according to wikipedia, EO2 only came out a year after EO1 as well.

  • tubers

    Tawww.. there goes my hope for a VITA port.. but hey.. Glad for the fans on the DS/3DS platform (where the IP established itself).

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Just for personal knowledge, how do you think a Vita port would work? You would have to constantly alternate between the FP view and the map, making it a huge hindrance and constantly taking you out of the magic of the game.

      • tubers

        Very good point!

        The devs would definitely need to adjust some presentations in the game making use of a wider screen and having multi touch.

        Key changes would probably have to do with:
        Opacity Control
        Map Toggling
        UI Size
        Virtual Button Placements
        and “Mini Map” featurettes.

        I’m fairly confident that the game’s development team are much more creative in terms of implementing a new presentation.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    A remake would make sense given the really short development cycle.

    • MikeTxn

      Okay, so it was a remake.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    that was fast lol

  • This is relevant to my interest.
    Best morning I’ve had in a while. Thanks based Siliconera!

  • Yuriangels

    i hope they go for a 7th dragon 2020 look! that were be epic

    • No please. If is there a thing i don’t want they to do, is to make new Etrian Odyssey like the “spin-off” 7th Dragon 2020 (I mean, I like it, but… i prefer 1000 times the original 7th Dragon feeling).

  • YES this series is awesome, I await whatever this is.

  • riceisnice

    I wonder if they’ll keep the Vessels and Sentinels. I kind of like them.

  • AndreasStalin i’m still crawling my way through EO II.

  • puchinri

    Oh, my. That’s pretty quick. He meant it when he said nearing completion. I’m looking forward to more news and seeing how it’ll differ from IV.

  • Why cling to 3DS? Is Atlus in bed with Nintendo now? That’s so disappointing, most developers work on PSVita now.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Because 3DS sells more than Vita? and EO series started on DS? If you wanted this game, you should know what machine you should buy lol.
