Review: Etrian Odyssey Nexus

February 04, 2019 1 min read

Even though it's one of the more niche franchises on the market, it's difficult for me to name a series more synonymous with dual-screen gaming than Etrian Odyssey. Starting as an easy-to-overlook, classic RPG on the Nintendo DS, the series has chugged along since 2007 with five main games, two remakes, and a Mystery Dungeon spin-off. It also influenced the creation of the Persona Q sub-series while remaining the premier dungeon-crawling RPG franchise to come out of Japan.

I first latched onto the series with Heroes of Lagaard and have been a fan ever since. Etrian Odyssey Nexus, the final Etrian title for the Nintendo 3DS, is very much made with fans like me in mind. It's a celebration of the series, a victory lap for one of gaming's most dependable products. While it's the perfect entry point for people who've yet to try and scale a Yggdrasil Tree, those who have been with Etrian Odyssey from the start will get the most out of it.
