New Etrian Odyssey for 3DS to be announced in spring 2018, is not Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold
Atlus held an Etrian Odyssey 10th Anniversary Closing Talk Show in Japan today, where it confirmed that it will announce its new Etrian Odyssey title for 3DS in spring 2018.
The new Etrian Odyssey title was first confirmed back in September. At the time, series director Shigeo Komori said it would be a ‘festival-like’ culmination of the series. At the event today, Komori said that it will not be Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold, but rather a “true culmination” with “map drawing to the point that it’s unpleasant” (this was likely a joking way to say it has a lot of map drawing), and “completely unexpected content.”
