The Etrian Odyssey series has proved to be a success in Japan and has had relative success here in the West with gamers eagerly anticipating the next entry in the franchise. Today, a new game in the series has been confirmed as being in development, but it will be the last one with a bottom screen map on the Nintendo 3DS. Presumably this means it could be the final Nintendo 3DS game in the series and then it will move to another platform which could be the Nintendo Switch. Here’s what Komori had to say:
Komori sees more and more opinions from series fans on social media.
In response to the above, he states:
‘In order to meet the expectations of these fans, I would like to deliver a “festival”-like game that can be said to be another culmination [of the series]. That’s the feeling I have, and I am currently developing a new game.’
Alongside Komori’s comment of a new game in development, he states:
‘This is the last game in the series that will have a map to be drawn on the bottom screen on the Nintendo 3DS. For specifics, I hope that you can wait until the day when we can officially announce it.’
