February 26 is the date Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan will be released for the 3DS, just a few months after Atlus announced it was being localized for western audiences. To help stir up interest in the title, which many may not have realized was only a few months away, has Atlus released a teaser trailer to remind everyone how great Etrian is. Those nostalgic dungeon crawling moments that only Etrian can provide are back one more.
Etrian Odyssey has always been a Pokemon-like franchise to me, in that I'm particularly glad they don't change it dramatically between releases. There's something about the formula that works, and part of that formula is that you can expect the same mechanics with each new game. That said, Etrian Odyseey IV will certainly take steps to improve the experience. Upgraded graphics and a new customizable skyship system are just the tip of the iceberg.
Look forward to Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan on February 26, 2012 exclusively for the 3DS. Those maps won't fill themselves out. Oh no, I'm going to have to fill those maps out myself. Out of my way, monsters, there's cartography to be done.
