The Nintendo 3DS console isn’t exactly short on role-playing games (RPGs) at present, but aside from the hit-and-miss Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. the vast majority of them play by the established rules. There’s room for innovation here – for something that can stand out from the crowd – and at present it seems as though Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan has more than just a few ideas on how to do exactly that.
Sad that EU is just getting this one. I've been playing it for a while and I think it's stellar. Good if you're an RPG fan.
If you're complaining about JRPGs being stale or dead, but you haven't played Etrian Odyssey IV, you're doing it wrong!
