Delisting

Etrian Mystery Dungeon was delisted on Nintendo 3DS in Australia and North America some time between April 13th and July 12th, 2020. The game was confirmed to be available as late as April 13th when it was featured in an Atlus sale on the 3DS eShop. Atlus’ own webpage for the game was last confirmed to be accessible on June 3rd, after which the game was submitted to our site on July 12th.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon was likely delisted due to the end of a licensing deal between Atlus and Sega, who own and publish the Etrian Odyssey series, and Spike Chunsoft, creators of the Mystery Dungeon series. As of July 2020 the game remains available in Europe and Japan but is expected to be delisted in European territories relatively soon. It is possible it will be delisted in Japan as well although publishing terms may differ in that region.


About the Game

Far off in the mountains, the small village Aslarga becomes a hub for adventurers looking for fame and fortune from the Mystery Dungeons. But dire challenges await even the most stalwart adventurers in Etrian Mystery Dungeon, a turn-based action RPG rogue like developed by ATLUS and Spike Chunsoft. 

The Nintendo 3DS exclusive mixes Etrian Odyssey’s vast RPG party and skill customization aspects, and Mystery Dungeon’s infinitely random dungeon adventures. There’s no hand-holding in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The action/turn based combat means that battling monsters is not just about using the right skills, but becomes an elegant Pas de Quatre of strategic positioning. 

Players form their parties with familiar Etrian Odyssey classes, such as Landsknecht and Runemaster, customize individuals using Etrian-style skill trees, and then take up to four members into the dungeons. Always randomized with various levels and paths, the dungeons require plenty of exploration, not to mention the incredible loot rewards — just be wary of what waits among the deepest depths.
