There’s A New Etrian Odyssey Game In Development

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.’

    1. Nintendo seems to be making a 4DS. Note; his comment says last to use on the 3DS. Even this developer doesn’t know if there will be a 4DS or if he has to make new games for the Switch single screen/touch screen instead. But Nintendo has made 2 strong suggestions that they will make a 4DS because the demographics are much more different between the Switch and 3DS then even they thought it would be.

  1. Looks like it could be a 2019 title when you factor in localization. Looks like Nintendo wasn’t kidding but it also seems Nintendo themselves have already moved on with their first party games.

  2. King Kalas X3 {I only buy exclusives that interest me on Switch. For everything else that interests me, there is PS4.} says:

    Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold please! I’m gonna miss being able to make the map myself using a bottom touch screen, though, if 3 Untold is the game we get. If not, I can just replay Untold or 2 Untold instead.

    1. Same. I couldn’t get into the original game that comes packaged in the Untold games.
