Rob Pitt writes: I’ve played every single Etrian Odyssey title on my Nintendo DS and 3DS. You see, I easily become addicted to dungeon crawlers as I love diving deeper into the unknown as I manually draw out my own map – it’s all very therapeutic for me. That’s why I simply couldn’t turn down the chance to try out Etrian Odyssey Nexus, the final chapter in the franchises perfectly adapted gameplay style.
Even though Etrian Odyssey is surely going to live on, either on the Nintendo Switch or other platforms, this will be the last outing which we’ll receive with its dual-screen setup, a setup which is absolutely perfect for the gameplay mechanics we’ve all come to love. Personally, I can’t see how the series will work without certain aspects, but it’s all very exciting and I can’t wait to find out.
