It's a censor bar because they couldn't get the license for the Zenithian Sword.

Odds on this one having a story mode baked in from the getgo?

Zero? They'd probably have mentioned it if it did, and 5 didn't, so it's clear they don't consider it a prerequisite outside of Untold and Persona Q.

They're also breaking their numbering scheme and have four swordpersons on the cover instead of a mix of classes.

The first two are the game's only Original Class (do not steal).

The other two are likely the two major faction NPCs.

Mmm, dunno? Both of the ladies use the same sword design, and both boys use the same (different) sword design.

They're the four designs for the only original class, which is literally named "Hero," yes.

Oh, you're right. I thought the two in back had yellow hair, but that's just the light.

Given the color pallet option in V I bet you could give them blue / black hair...

But that's the dedicated thread for EOX. Why are you trying to move discussion out of it?

So I started playing Etrian Odyssey IV again! Only took me about three years to get back to the game, but it's been on my 3DS's SD card ever since I first bought it.

The first stratum is the biggest wall for me. Traditionally, I get through a few floors and the monsters become a bigger pain in the ass and there's some boss who's a frickin' wall and I take a break for a while and never go back. It happened with Etrian Odyssey II, it happened with Etrian Odyssey III, and up until now it happened with Etrian Odyssey IV. With the exception of the Mystery Dungeon spinoff, I swore off buying another one of these damned things unless I beat EO4.

But anyway, the curse is broken and the Berserker King is dead. Until he respawns.

Taking in the advice* from the game's proper thread, I actually got through the Lush Woodlands and now I'm exploring new terrain in the Scarlet Plains. I need some dumb rock to make my balloon go higher** but I don't mind too much at the moment 'cuz I'm mapping out the Miasma Forest bit by bit and collecting new monster chunks to make new shit with.

Maybe I'm just a li'l overleveled, but it's definitely getting easier. I slaughtered a Greedy Lizard without too much trouble. Also my team's powerful enough to beat the crap out of the Bounding Beasts that have plagued my sky travels for so long and it feels so good.

Remains to be seen if I play to the end, but the odds are looking better!

* Speaking of, the people who said you can't go wrong with Dancer were right. My Dancer's been a very useful cornerstone of my team. Like, I commonly keep him on the front line and use some mixture of the Attack, Regen, and Guard dances as needed, maybe a Counter Samba when there's a big group.

** Only thing I have to go on is "maybe the balloon errand people will give you one". And last time I gave Wiglaf something (RECENTLY! AFTER GETTING THIS MISSION!) I got one of the same old fire jars she's been handing out since I got all her interesting stuff. Maybe I'll have better luck with armor boy.

Hope this "quest" isn't like Crimson Shroud's item wall, where I had to keep fighting the same bloody pile of skeletons over and over again in hopes of getting a specific drop between me and the rest of the damn game.

I want to say that item is found in a dungeon somewhere. Though it's been a while...

Cross comes out next week in Japan, but Atlus isn’t wasting any time moving on from the 3DS. They’ve already posted a teaser for their first game in the post-second-screen era.

@51 seconds: "You approach the large box. Might it contain the documents Mueller spoke of?"

Ripped from the headlines?

Seriously, is there some reason you refuse to talk about this game in its own thread?
