Launch Edition (Americas Only)

They say that whoever reaches the top of the colossal Yggdrasil tree will have their greatest wish fulfilled. So what’s so hard about hiking up a tree? Well, besides being a gigantic labyrinth, the Yggrasil tree is home to many nightmarish creepy crawlies and terrifying FOEs just waiting for a tasty treat to come waltzing by. But don’t let that dampen your adventurous spirit because the Etrian Odyssey V launch edition contains many treasures that will strengthen your resolve! Here’s what you’ll get when you pre-order or otherwise grab the limited launch edition of the game:

  • 24-Page Art Book – Beautiful character art and concept sketches by the illustrious Yuji Himukai cover the pages of this magnificent art book. The unique explorers that will fill up your party are a wonder to behold.
  • 6-Track Music CD – A grand journey is utterly droll without music, so get into the adventuring mindset with an enchanting soundtrack crafted by long-time series composer Yuzo Koshiro!
  • Outer Box – The Yggdrasil tree and eager adventurers adorn this colorful outer box which protects the precious treasures it holds within.

Adventurers in Europe will receive the game and art book when they pre-order or purchase limited launch copies of the physical game.

Free 3DS Theme

A free Etrian Odyssey V Nintendo 3DS theme is now available for download, for free, on the North American Theme Shop. It will be available at launch in Europe.

    As someone who loves these games, I’m not sure how much of a good idea it is to lock an entire class behind DLC. I know it’s only $2 USD but the point of it is why not just have it as part of the base game?

    • Mr. Capo

      Actually they are skins. There is no “Protector”, “Medic” or “Gunner” class in the game, you simply use these DLC skins to assign a race and one of the 10 classes in the game.
