Atlus shared a new Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection gameplay video, with this one basically attempting to set potential players up for success. It not only goes over existing features and tips, but also points out some of the new additions or updates present in all three games.
The video begins by showing the difficulty options. Picnic, Basic, and Expert all appear when you start the game. Picnic is specifically cited and noted to be the easiest one for people who want to focus on the installments’ stories. After that, it shows the enhanced 2D character designs and UI and 3D dungeons. From there, it shows how to create a guild and get additional quests from the local restaurant, bar, or bistro. Dungeon exploration comes up after that, though the video did cite how we can build a party of any kinds of characters we’d like. From there, the new automap option shows how it fills in floors and walls. It wraps up by showing FOEs and stronger enemies, as well as facing them by ensuring characters learn skills after leveling up.
Here’s the full Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection gameplay video going over how to play the games.
At the end of the video, it shows the six pre-order portraits people can get. In Etrian Odyssey, that means people could look like Joker or Ringo. In Etrian Odyssey 2, the DLC adds the Demi-Fiend and Teddie as options. Finally, for Etrian Odyssey 3, that means getting to make characters look like the Nahobino or Aegis.
Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will release on the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC on June 1, 2023.
