If you’re looking to dish out more damage while adventuring in the Yggdrasil Tree, you can’t go wrong with having a Pugilist in the party. These masters of martial arts and bare-knuckle brawling are ready to punch some beasts in the face, so be sure to slot them in the front line and let them loose. Besides being able to inflict game changing binds and paralysis on enemies, Pugilists can sacrifice HP in order to deal out some very punishing attacks. It’s never a bad idea to roll around with someone whose fists are considered deadly weapons.

 

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth features:
  • A Choose-your-own-odyssey Feel – Starting with the creation of your party to exploring the uncharted labyrinth of the Yggdrasil Tree, Beyond the Myth is all about choosing how your own adventure unfolds. Test your survival skills by wisely navigating the winding floors of Yggdrasil, using shrewd tactics when battling gruesome beasts, making the right decisions during various “scenarios,” and more. To meet these challenges, the home base city of Iorys is ready for all your buying/selling, recruiting, and information-gathering needs!
  • Gameplay Fit for a True Pathfinder – It wouldn’t be an Etrian Odysseygame without the life-or-death need to map your progress. For those new to the series, the bottom screen of the 3DS displays a top-down, tile-based map that must be filled out while dungeon crawling. Players can use the map to mark the locations of treasures, doors, enemies, environmental obstructions, and more. Expect the unexpected at every turn–and then make a note on the map so it’s not so unexpected next time!
  • Epic Turn-based Battles – There’s a reason why no one has ever reached the top of Yggdrasil. Dangerous creatures and utterly terrifying FOEs–high-level mini-bosses, for you newcomers–roam the labyrinth on every floor, so prepare to test your mettle with challenging turn-based battles. Proper planning is a must and balancing strong party composition is absolutely crucial for success. You’ll need the right team to unleash Union Attacks and level the playing field!
  • Expanded Character Creation and Customization – With four unique races, 10 distinct classes, more customization options than any previous game in the franchise, and a streamlined skill tree/class advancement, you can shape a party to whatever your heart desires.
  • A Magical Art Style and Score – Longtime series illustrator Yuji Himukai and renowned composer Yuzo Koshiro return to add their signature magic to the art and music in the game.
Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will release on Oct. 17 for the Nintendo 3DS™ system and will be priced at $39.99. The game has been rated T by the ESRB. For more information please visit the website: http://atlus.com/etrian5/.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth is looking fantastic. Do not be surprised if this is another big hit for the series when it launches here!

Disclaimer: Game came from my own collection

Miitopia is a game that I had been unsure of when I first learned of its existence. It made sense that it would exist but I had no idea how it would function. After seeing footage though, I was hooked as this game really did have a chance to be great. After playing through the main story line, I have found that this is really a great game.

Miitopia is a solid RPG title that brings in Nintendo’s beloved Mii characters into their own Fantasy set game. This game thrusts your main character, who can even be you, onto a grand adventure. With many different jobs to choose from, it is up to you to pick the right job for you. Joining you are 9 other characters who you can make anyone you wish. Make them friends, family, celebrities, anyone you choose, and you get to pick jobs for them and eventually change jobs. Another big part of this game is the relationships that form. Pairing up characters can be done in the inn or out in the field and even in battle. Your characters relationships can really turn the tide of battle in your favor or your enemies. If all your characters hate each other of course you won’t get all of the extra damage.

The story itself is a solid one, involving an evil lord played by whoever you choose, stealing the faces of people everywhere. You can choose a character for this demon or have it auto picked. My villain ended up being Team Flare’s Boss Lysander of Pokemon X and Y fame. This villain is powerful and you will need to gather and train your friends. An interesting thing that happens is when he comes and spirits your friends away multiple times. This forces you to choose a new job and start journeying with three new characters.

Along the way, you will meet a variety of other characters who help you, while journeying through dungeons to find keys and other lost items you eventually defeat your foe. But like in most JRPGS the story is far from over as a new boss appears. Since I don’t plan on spoiling it though, I will just say as soon as this boss is defeated, you will be granted more character slots. With new characters to raise this game becomes infinite in a lot of ways. You can always start the game over, or you can grind levels of new characters in the same file.

There is always new quests to take once the boss is defeated. There really is so much to do as there are even extra jobs to find. This game really is something to be played. You not only get to cast the characters but the randomness of it all is just fantastic. Miitopia is out now on the Nintendo 3DS Family of Systems. So gather your miis and head out on a quest to take down the Dark Lord!

Get ready to flex those cartography muscles again because Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will be launching in the Americas on Oct. 17! All of the mysteries, dangers, and FOEs that inhabit the Yggdrasil tree will be revealed very soon, so make sure your calendar is clear of any distractions. The release date in Europe will be announced at a later time.
They say that whoever reaches the top of the colossal Yggdrasil will have their greatest wish fulfilled. So what’s so hard about hiking up a tree? Well, besides being a gigantic labyrinth, the Yggrasil tree is home to many nightmarish creepy crawlies and terrifying FOEs just waiting for a tasty treat to come waltzing by. But don’t let that dampen your adventurous spirit because the Etrian Odyssey V launch edition contains many treasures that will strengthen your resolve! Here’s what you’ll get when you pre-order or otherwise grab the limited launch edition of the game:

24-Page Art Book – Beautiful character art and concept sketches by the illustrious Yuji Himukai cover the pages of this magnificent art book. The unique explorers that will fill up your party are a wonder to behold.

  • 6-Track Music CD – A grand journey is utterly droll without music, so get into the adventuring mindset with an enchanting soundtrack crafted by long-time series composer Yuzo Koshiro!
  • Outer Box – The Yggdrasil tree and eager adventurers adorn this colorful outer box which protects the precious treasures it holds within.
Fencer Class
It just wouldn’t be smart to traverse the Yggdrasil tree without someone who is pretty handy with a blade, so why not have an Earthlain Fencer watch your back when exploring? The Fencer is master of both rapier and shield, and let’s just say that during fights they really like to get straight to the point. Quick on their feet, Fencers excel at evasion, stabbing, initiating defensive buffs, stabbing, chaining together attacks with other party members, and stabbing. They can further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.
This is an awesome looking game. Will you be getting it when it launches?

The stars of Chicken Wiggle are an improbable duo: a young chicken and his new best buddy – a wiggly worm – nestled in his backpack! Together, they team up for adventure to jump, peck, and worm-grapple across a myriad of perplexing platforming levels – full of fun gadgets, tricky hazards, and sneaky foes – determined to rescue their friends from the wicked witch in her sky towers.

Create & Share Levels On-line!
But wait, there’s more! Aspiring game designers and playful doodlers alike can spend hours of fun hatching their own levels with the user-friendly level creator included with the game. You can even choose different gameplay rules, art themes, and provide custom hints, tips, and search tags. Once you’re ready, it’s easy to share your creations on-line with other Chicken Wiggle players via the community portal. Now, anyone can be a game designer on the go!

Players seeking more levels to play after completing Chicken Wiggle’s main story mode will find a wealth of unique levels to download, play, and rate for free!

A website for the game can be found here

 

Atooi, one of the two studios to come from the split of Renegade Kid, has some great pedigree behind their game design and a lot of experience. This looks like another classic in waiting and should be an awesome experience.

There are a lot of monsters that call the Yggdrasil home. Sure, cold hard steel and explosive gunpowder can usually get the job done, but sometimes a little more “oomph” is required when dealing with these pesky beasts. Thankfully, the Celestrian’s Warlock class provides a magical spark to these engagements. And when we say spark, we actually mean ancient power that can summon raging fireballs, monstrous hailstorms, amplify other magical abilities, and more! As they level up, Warlocks can further specialize in base elemental skills (fire, ice, and lightning) or branch out to learn new elemental earth and wind spells.
