2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Atlus’s dungeon crawling RPG series Etrian Odyssey. Series character designer Yuji Himukai tweeted a gorgeous illustration to commemorate the milestone featuring the many party classes found throughout the series. Originally released on January 18, 2007 on Nintendo DS, Etrian Odyssey provided a new twist on the dungeon crawler format with dual screen information display and map drawing with a touch screen. Powerful enemies roaming the labyrinths called F.O.E. add tension to the exploration, as these monsters can still walk around on the map and enter your on-going battle against a different enemy should you attempt to escape their pursuit. The series’ lead composer is Yuzo Koshiro, a name that might sound familiar to long-time SEGA fans, as he worked on the soundtrack for the Streets of Rage games and The Revenge of Shinobi.
Canadian video game retailer Video Games Plus seems to be on a roll when it comes to restocking SEGA and Atlus games. After restocking SEGA’s Infinite Space and various Nintendo DS and PSP Atlus games, they’ve now added SEGA’s Phantasy Star 0 to their lineup, for the price of $39.99CDN (around $31USD).
Originally released back in 2009 for the Nintendo DS, the game was developed by Sonic Team and featured three online modes and an offline Story Mode. The gameplay mechanics were based on those of Phantasy Star Online and Phantasy Star Universe, and the character design was done by Toshiyuki Kubooka (known for his work on the Lunar series). As you may expect, the online modes are no longer functional in this release. However, the game is listed as region free, and Video Games Plus does ship internationally. We included the original launch trailer and a few screenshots of the game below.
A few days ago we’ve reported that the Nintendo DS RPG Infinite Space will be restocked at the Canadian video game retailer Video Games Plus, and turns out various Atlus Playstation Portable games as well as both Trauma Center games for the Nintendo DS will be restocked as well! Video Games Plus explained in a tweet that these recent restocks are in fact new reprints of the DS games, and that almost any new DS game sold on the market today has been reprinted, unless the game underperformed in sales.
