Etrian Mystery Dungeon Video Introduces Hexer Class
posted on by Daryl Lee Hale
Atlus USA began streaming a video on Thursday introducing the Hexer class in its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The class uses curses to inflict status ailments on enemies.
Atlus USA previously announced the Dancer, Landsknecht, Protector, and Runemaster classes. The crossover between Mystery Dungeon game series and Etrian Odyssey series is set for release in Japan on March 5, and April 7 in North America. Atlus USA plans to release both physical and digital editions for US$39.99. The launch edition in North America will include a 28-page visual book and a CD with rough versions of six themes from the game's soundtrack
Like the Mystery Dungeon game series, Etrian Mystery Dungeon will feature a new random map each time a player enters a dungeon. Players explore with a party of up to four chosen from ten different Etrian Odyssey class types. Exploration will be in the third-person perspective, unlike the Etrian Odyssey first-person, and players must control their party group.
Atlus' Shigeo Komori and Yukari Yokoro (art director, Etrian Odyssey IV) will serve as producer and director, respectively. Spike Chunsoft's Seiichirō Nagahata and Kaoru Hasegawa will serve as project director and character designer, respectively. Other staff members are returning from previous Etrian Odyssey games: Yūzō Koshiro will compose the music, Yūji Himukai will draft class designs, Shin Nagasawa will provide monster designs, and Nizō Yamamoto will act as art supervisor.
