SEGA and Atlus have announced that Etrian Odyssey, the popular 3D action RPG, is being remastered and is coming to the Switch and PC on June 1, 2023.
Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection is a remastered collection of the original three titles in the series and is a 3D dungeon-crawling RPG where players select adventurers from a variety of classes and combine their skills to search for an immense treasure sleeping within a vast labyrinth, all while creating a unique and personalized map.
Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will bring beautifully upgraded visuals and the addition of ease-of-play functions such as difficulty levels, auto-mapping, and much more.
Here are the key features of the upcoming Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection:
Difficulty Levels Added – With three difficulty levels, players from all backgrounds can
