So, this is it. The final update to the Official Etrian Odyssey 3 website. *Sniffle* On Thursday of this week, the game will be released to stores all over Japan... and then... begins our wait... and the crucial life or death situation.
Import or Wait?
Wait... for what I feel is the almost inevitable release of this game state-side. Well, let's get on with this, shall we. The website actually dropped something on us today.
First, the obvious: the final wallpaper has been released, featuring many of the FOEs that are due to be the doom of adventurers everywhere. - Click here to view them.
And finally, I would like to direct you to this page of the website: System Information #6. The first page is quite interesting as it appears to feature two unlockable classes! Is this true? I have no idea. I can't read Japanese! And even more mysterious than this, the second page which features a single image that, at first glance, appears like many of the other screenshots we've seen, except that there are three golden crowns beside the character's level at the top of the image.
What is this about?! I have no clue. As soon as I learn something, you guys will be informed, I promise.
... And... that's it. Nothing more for now. Remember, feel free to join us over at the forums. We have an EO3 exclusive boards where anyone is free to discuss the game. And have no fear. The Admins and our Moderators will be out in full force to make sure that those who have imported the game will NOT be spoiling the game for anyone else. We have a spoiler-tag system put in place and it will be implemented!
We hope to see you there~
The Official Etrian Odyssey 3 website has just released the final three wallpapers in their class set - which will probably conclude the wallpapers unless they have something else hidden up their sleeves for us.
You can view these three wallpapers in our image gallery under three different sizes for each one. - Click here to view them.
Also released on the website, the toggle/secondary artwork for the final five classes. Definitely worth a look.
For those who don't know are just showing up. Etrian Odyssey III / Sekaiju no Meikyu 3 is being released in Japan next Thursday. There is still no news yet if the game is coming over here.
GameFaqs members Zaraf and Scy have also made it known on our forums tha they will definitely be picking this game up and that we can all look forward to their valuable maps when they are released, which will not only be featured over on the GameFaqs site but on our site here as well.
Gah!! So excited! No, saddly, I will not be importing, unless the game is really not going to be released over here. I will be holding out. ... I'm going to bust out crying when they start ranting about the game, I just know it. *Sigh*
So, I just wanted to let you guys know that even though I do not post it on the main site, I've constantly been updating the youtube channel since its launch. I'm still not done, either.
So, please, be sure to visit it!
I've also updated the Staff page with some more up to date information on how to contact us. Please, if you are ever trying to get ahold of me, do not wait for me to get on an Instant Messenger. I'm RARELY RARELY on. Please, send me an e-mail. Leave a comment on my twitter (doesn't have to be related). Or send me a PM on the forums.
Now this next part is just me griping about something, so you can ignore it. It's a rant. I like to do these occasionally. It holds no real value. In fact, I've place it under the cut.
So, let's just jump right into the news, then. First, let's start with EO3/SQ3 due to premiere in Japan in less than a month (4.1.10).
Not only does the Official Etrian Odyssey 3 website have the first five characters' color-change portraits up, but it also has a very fun Guild/Class Generator. Obviously it's in Japanese, but it's pretty easy to follow. The first question is asking you for your guild name. The next one is asking you for the name of your ship. After that, it is simple class and image selection. We've already been showing ours off at the forums. In case you are interested, my generated image is located beneath the cut.
Next, we have three new soundtracks that have been added on the website. You can grab them off our Mp3 page in mp3 format.
We also have five new wallpapers grabbed off of the main site. Each of the five wallpapers come in three different sizes. - Click here to view them.
And finally, last but not least, a special announcement. ItL now has its own Youtube channel. Since Nyleveia.com seems to have gotten busy with other things and stopped updating with EO3 videos, I took it upon myself to make an attempt. After I had learned, I went further and just decided to make it the (un)official fan EO Youtube Channel. I'm going to favorite a bunch of EO vids, post up what I have, and it's just generally going to be a lot of fun.
The youtube player over to the left has been updated and now reads off of our new account. You can now find us at http://www.youtube.com/user/IntoLabyrinth.
Join us! It's going to be great! (Note: I will be updating that color scheme to be a little more ItL-ish.)
