Atlus has released a new trailer for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, showcasing the “Masurao” class. Etrian Oddisy is a dungeon crawler RPG series set that has been running for 10 years. Among the addictive elements of the title are the many races, classes and character customization options presented to players.
Etrian Odyssey V, Your Way of the Sword
Read here an overview of the new class, via Atlus:
Do you know what’s really effective against the deadly creatures that call the Yggdrasil tree home? If you said katanas, you’re absolutely right! Luckily, the Therian Masurao in Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth just so happens to delight in slicing and dicing with beautifully crafted Japanese swords. They can be slotted in the frontline to slash everything in their path and can even attack multiple opponents in a single attack.
Oh, they can also lure rare enemies into combat to get better items and gain more experience with the New Challenger skill. The better the skill, the rarer the enemies, and the greater the rewards! The Masurao can specialize in using one sword to become a master of the blade or it can learn to wield up to four of them and become a bona fide sword saint.
Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth is available now for 3DS in Japan, and will launch in the Americas on October 17 and Europe this fall. You can but it on Amazon with our link.
