Play-Asia accidentally leaked that Etrian Mystery Dungeon would be coming to North America in spring 2015. Altus has since sent out an email blast confirming that it would indeed come stateside during that period of time.
For those who may not be aware, Etrian Mystery Dungeon is a recently announced game that fuses the Etrian Odyssey series and Spike Chunsoft’s Mystery Dungeon series. The game will include Etrian Odyssey’s character levelling system and the randomised nature of the dungeons in Mystery Dungeon.
Etrian Mystery Dungeon also promises player exploration in multiple dungeons with a town hub for you to form your parties, buy and sell equipment and to heal up your characters. Unlike a traditional Etrian Odyssey game, this game will not be in first-person. Instead, it will adopt the fixed perspective used in Mystery Dungeon.
Etrian Mystery Dungeon is set to be released on the Nintendo 3DS in spring 2015.
