Gunner DLC Illustrations
Following the reveal of the Gunner portrait DLC for Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth in this week’s issue of Famitsu, screenshots that could not be included in the magazine have been provided online.
Gunner will not be its own class in Etrian Odyssey V however, as with the other DLC portraits, this illustration may be used with any class.
Guest Countdown Illustration
With Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth releasing in Japan in seven days, Atlus has started a countdown series featuring guest illustrations and messages for the upcoming game.
They previously held a similar countdown prior to the release of Odin Sphere Leifthrasir.
The featured guest illustrator for today is CHANxCO, who is responsible for illustrations in Wooser’s Hand-to-Mouth Life and Puchitto ☆ Rock Shooter.
CHANxCO provides a comment congratulating Atlus on the upcoming release of Etrian Odyssey V and their illustration of the Reaper.
