- Part 2 (starts at 8:30 PM JST): The main part of the special Etrian Odyssey V live stream starts.
More information on the live stream will be updated in the near future.
Chara Making Campaign
A character creator campaign for Etrian Odyssey V has been launched. Through the official website, a character will be randomly generated with different color variations, clothes, gender and voice, for an approximate total of around 200,000 combinations.
As Twitter milestones (ranging from 4,000 to 25,000) are hit for people tweeting out their own generated characters through the website, QR codes will be released for items that will be made available in the demo version of the game that will be released on July 20.
When a character is generated, a high resolution Twitter icon of that character is made available for download. Some examples:
Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on August 4, 2016 in Japan.
