ATLUS recently hosted an Etrian Odyssey developer live stream following the announcement of Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection at the February 8 Nintendo Direct. Player feedback from Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will be important for what’s to come for the dungeon crawling series.
According to ATLUS, feedback and opinions from Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will be used for the next new Etrian Odyssey game. ATLUS thanks players for their patience as development of the new Etrian Odyssey game continues on. It will take more time to develop the new title since the development team is still adjusting to new hardware and changes away from a duel screen system.
Here’s what the development team at ATLUS had to say via Persona Central:
Message from the Etrian Odyssey Development Team
Hello everyone, this is the “Etrian Odyssey” development team. It’s been a while. First of all, thanks to all of your support, the “Etrian Odyssey” series is able to celebrate its 16th anniversary this year. This is all thanks to all those who enjoy playing the games, thank you very much.
To all of you who have been looking forward to the new game, we thank you very much for your patience… The hardware has changed from the two-screen DS, and we have to admit that it will take more time to create a new “Etrian Odyssey.”
In the course of our research, these remasters were produced based on the concept of “We want people to be able to play the original trilogy, which is no longer accessible, on current consoles.”
The play style has changed significantly from the two-screen DS, but we have also prepared methods for those who want to enjoy hand-drawn maps.
We would like to make use of opinions on this remaster for the new “Etrian Odyssey” game. We would like to hear your feedback, whether you’ve played previous titles in the series or are playing “Etrian Odyssey” for the first time.
Lastly, Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection launches June 1 for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
