After not posting a class trailer last week, Atlus made up for the gap by posting two class trailers for their upcoming 3DS game, “Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth.”
Joining the previously announced classes are the Rover and Necromancer. Check out their descriptions and accompanying trailers below.
Meet the real hunters of Yggdrasil, the Rover class. With an expertise in long ranged attacks, the Rover class can deliver some hard hits while in the back line. Their knowledge of nature is a hot commodity in battle, especially when it comes to special quests that involve exploring uncharted territory. Besides pursuing monsters, these hunters can also get help from animals to provide both offense and defense support.
It’s no secret that death awaits all who enter the Yggdrasil tree, but did you know that you can bring death into the tree? Ok, that sounds a bit confusing, but it all makes sense when we explain what the Necromancer can bring to the table. These masters of the undead arts aren’t the best fighters, but they can summon wraiths to do their dirty work instead. These wraiths are not only able to dish out and absorb damage, but can also be sacrificed for the greater good. Want to heal the party? Sacrifice a wraith! What about disable enemy defenses for a few turns? Sacrifice a wraith! Trying to increase the party’s magic strength? Sacrifice a wraith! Although Necromancers are a bit unconventional, they’re skills are invaluable to the party.
Don’t forget that a demo is now available for download. In the demo, every character and class (including Rover and Necromancer) are playable. However, the demo will only allow players to reach the third floor of the Yggdrasil tree and the level caps at 10. The full game comes out on October 17.
