    I wonder if ATLUS games have Sales just for the sake of having,or because they are not selling that well. :/

    SMTIV is such a kickass game. And so is the whole series,as well as other ones,like Etrian Odyssey.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      SMTIV was the largest SMTIV debut. Its one of their best selling games

      • Lester Rat

        In Japan. The sale is in US, wherr SMT IV is more expensive than almost every 3DS game.

  • Guest

    So SMT is probably my favorite RPG franchise of all time. I know Etrian Odyssey plays like SMT, but I am kind of tired of the whole fantasy world setting. Main reason I like SMt is because it is in a somewhat modern day setting.

    That said, are there any like minded people like myself who love Etrian Odyssey that can convince me to play it? I’ve played the demo and it didn’t do much for me, but I also think there is something wrong with me in that I never usually like game demos even if I end up liking the game in the long run.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Just because Etrian Odyssey is a dungeon crawler it doesnt mean it plays like SMT. Its got a completely different focus.

      And how could you be tired of fantasy? Modern day or Fantasy it doesnt matter, but some shit fits the shoe better than the other.

      Stop playing Final Fantasy. Play moar Radiant Historia

      Now stop being selfish, convince yourself to play it.You obviously have some inkling to do so. Fickle person.

      • Guest

        Thanks for all the insults, but I don’t really play Final Fantasy. Dragon Quest yes, and I don’t think I’ll get sick of DQ.

        I guess what I’ve seen of the demo, and all screen shots, everything looks like it is in a forest. It just seems like it would get really boring and dull after a while with no real story or characters. People love it. I’m just trying to figure out the appeal. Drawing my own maps doesn’t really sell me on it.

        • Lester Rat

          EO is not story focused.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          The appeal is its a dungeon crawler with a battle system and you go exploring n shiz.

          Also the forest is the first level of the game lol.

        • Lumi

          If you aren’t a fan of really hard almost pure battle hardcore rpgs, I’d say forget it. I played EO1 and there’s was too much tediousness in drawing maps, FOEs, and little to no story for ages. You MIGHT try Untold, since that’s got a easy mode, and as I heard, a story and auto mapping. But if you are looking for story and characters, there’s better games worth your time. Like zero escape and ace attorney

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            EO4 and EO Untold are way more user friendly.

            And EO4 has a story. Its Dungeons and Dragons style though. Its more like you’re an Archaeologist/cartographer

        • Gregor

          The forest really is only the first dungeon in EOIV, there’s a good variety :)
          Basically EO’s appeal is in exploration and wonder in and for itself. It’s a calm game, which focus on atmosphere and immersion. That and a good gameplay, with a lot of party customization options, challenging and satisfying enemies and cleverly designed dungeons. It’s low on story but the point is that your adventures are the stories :)
          If that interests you buy one (I suggest III or IV, or Untold, but I’m european so I still haven’t seen it) and try it for yourself with the due attention, if not there’s not really much one can do to “convince” you.

      • Lumi

        Yay for Radiant Historia!

    • Lester Rat

      Why do you want people to convince you? Etrian Odyssey is good, but you don’t need to play it. If you really want to try the series, buy one of the DS or 3DS games and give it a proper chance. If you have more than enough games to play now, leave it to another opportunity.

    • Like you, I played SMT quite a bit before biting on EO4 on the 3DS, and it took two attempts before I said ‘hey this is actually worth it’.

      Rather than go into a long-winded mention of why the game is the way it is, let me go back to your mentions on the demo. The demo for the most recent addition to the series, Etrian Odyssey Untold, is incredibly long. It took me roughly 4-5 hours to complete it. There is a lot to do for what they give you and far greater when you actually purchase the game. It’s definitely a worthy example of why you should or shouldn’t get into it. If you can’t convince yourself after that, I would probably say you’re better off with something else. However, if you even like it a bit or more, I’d say you’re in for many nights of playing.

    • LunarKnite

      While I enjoyed SMT IV, I enjoy EOIV much more. Personally, the story in SMTIV wasn’t really gripping, so the lack of a fully developed story, as there is a basic plot, in EOIV was more suited towards my tastes at the moment. The combat system in both games are equally rewarding, though EOIV may be more so since you tend to stick with your characters instead of constantly fusing new ones.

      I initially played the EOIV demo and after buying the game, didn’t touch it for months because I have a horrible backlog, but after finally listening to the CD it came with, realizing it was Yuzo Koshiro of ActRaiser glory, I picked the game up to at least listen to the amazing soundtrack, which I personally like over SMTIV.

      The exploration and map-making aspect of EO isn’t something I thought I’d enjoy much, but it grew on me, becoming one of the more addicting features of the series. Combine that with the on-screen FOE bosses, there’s a real sense of thrill and danger you don’t quite get from most other RPGs.

    • Rogerrmark

      I tend to play because of the system. SMT bosses are pretty awesome,imo,as well.

      Etrian Odyssey is basically a Megaten with Job system,imo.

      You still have to buff/debuff in battles,and skill combo is possible.Thr games are pretty solid.

      There is a great amount of post-game content as well on the last entries.
      About the setting,it’s actually a post-apocaliptic world where humanity started started again and is current living on a,somewhat,midde age era.Not really a spoiler,btw,the manual of 1 says that if I’m not mistaken.

    • Exkaiser

      It doesn’t really sound like Etrian is for you, from your other comments. It’s very much about the solo role-playing experience- you should draft up your characters and feel their triumphs and challenges yourself. Most of the writing, setting, and music is there to lend atmosphere for you, not to be the main draw like in most games (though the soundtracks are exceptional, so…).

      It can be incredibly moving if you get into that sort of thing, or it can be rather boring if you’re not. It’s a game about stories without too much of its own story. It’s about rewarding struggles, about exploration and wonder, and about the fear of death.

      There’s a really good review of one of the games (I think it was III?) that’s written mostly as stories from the game. I really wish I could find it.

    • Etrian Odyssey plays nothing like SMT, at least not SMT 3/4. Both Nocturne and IV are much faster-paced third-person games, whereas Etrian Odyssey is a very slow, deliberate first-person dungeon crawler, with a focus on mapping out dungeons little by little.

  • Thatguy

    That some slap to Europe fans! :D


  • Go2hell66


    can we have smt4 now?

  • baha

    *Meanwhile in Europe*
    A: Sir, it’s on discount again
    B: Ready the Bravely Default Spoilers, all of them.

    • Thatguy

      Good idea. I love you!

    • AuraGuyChris

      I don’t know. That weapon is considerably crueler than getting a discount.

      • All Fiction

        It’s not about the discount (in Europe every new 3DS game costs 60$ anyways), it’s about the delay

  • Arizato

    Where is SMTIV for Europe, Nintendo? >.<

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      next year bwahahhaaha

      • Arizato

        Yup, seems that way sadly.

  • ElAbuelo69

    I am still waiting for the SMT IV OST yo!

    The one included in the LE is a pretty lame and non-representative selection.

  • Matthew Brannock

    it’s not a discont if it makes it the same price as every other 3ds game

  • Wow, those are some nice Wii U sales in Europe!

  • Gaminglord3

    I’m still interested in this game too! Even though I haven’t played any in the series.

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    Still haven’t beaten SMTIV but I will before the end of the year
