gather a large amount of dungeon-crawling content for players to enjoy when it releases, but Sega and Atlus want to sweeten the pot with some fan service. That fan service is targeted towards those familiar with the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series, as early purchases of the Etrian Odyssey Origins bundle in Japan will include Persona and SMT character DLC. [Thanks, Dengeki!]

During a February 9, 2023 broadcast about the remastered games, Sega and Atlus revealed that early purchases and pre-orders of the Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection would receive an Atlus Collaboration Adventurer Illustration Pack. This DLC pack will unlock the ability to change the appearance of any party member to one from various Atlus works. The visual customization will feature renderings of characters from Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Soul Hackers 2 in the distinctive character style used in Etrian Odyssey.

Each game in the Etrian Odyssey Origins trilogy will have two character art unlocks from the DLC.

  • The remastered Etrian Odyssey will unlock character sprites based on Ringo from Soul Hackers 2 and Joker from Persona 5.
  • The Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard remaster will unlock sprites based on Demi-fiend from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and Teddie from Persona 4.
  • The remaster of Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City will have character sprites to make an adventurer look like Nahobino from Shin Megami Tensei V or Aigis from Persona 3.

Additionally, early Switch physical editions of the Etrian Odyssey Origins bundle will include a stylus that works on the Switch’s touch screen. Since they were DS-based titles, the original Etrian Odyssey games were famous for having players use the handheld’s built-in stylus to draw and mark out maps of the dungeons, highlighting threats and passages.

The Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will launch on the Nintendo Switch and PC on June 1, 2023. The games will also be sold separately.
