Game ships in North America on April 7

Atlus USA began streaming a full trailer on Wednesday for its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Etrian Mystery Dungeon.

After the game's North American release on April 7, players will have access to free downloadable content until May 5. After this date, players can purchase the downloadable content, which includes five quests and various bonuses.

The company also announced a paid theme for the 3DS will be available on March 31 in the Nintendo eShop. The theme will include scrolling character art and custom folders and will play the main Etrian Mystery Dungeon theme song.

Atlus released the crossover between the Mystery Dungeon game series and the Etrian Odyssey series in Japan on March 5. Atlus USA plans to release both physical and digital editions in North America 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.
