More progress into treasure locations

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 26, 2010

And I've now completed Stratum 4 of the Item Point, Treasure, and Camp Site Locations page. In addition to this, I've also corrected a few errors that I noticed from my last load up. My apologies for those and any inconvenience caused.

Now, the next part of this update is to remind everyone about the Youtube Channel. Starting tomorrow I plan on scouring youtube to collect any EO videos any to place them into playlists. This will include soundtrack videos as well as walkthroughs and boss battles. There's a lot of great stuff out there!

Screens, Wallpapers, and a Video

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 25, 2010

So, the Official Etrian Odyssey 3 website went live last week, and on it was a few screenshots, nothing exciting to motivate me. Yesterday, however, the website updated with even more screenshots, and four wallpapers. Before that, there was also a video released. Ok, now I'm pumped!

Twenty new screenshots have been added to the image gallery. - Click here to view them

Four wallpapers have been added, all representing the Princess/Prince class. There come in two sizes: 1024x768 and 1280x1024. - Click here to view them

In addition to this, I also managed to find a REALLY nice full quality version of the logo, added up in both jpg and png formats. - Click here to view them

And, last but not least for the images: a HIGH quality, super-sized, please-sir-may-I-have-some-more, version of the box art. *Evil grin* Yes, I thought you'd enjoy that, too. You can find this bad boy by clicking here, however to view it in its full glory, you will have to click the image to get the pop up viewer. Oh, it is so beautiful I shed a tear when I saw it.

Oh, but that's not all, I have added up in our Youtube Channel a high quality version of the "What's Your Story" video found on the Atlus USA youtube channel and on the site. You can also view it in our viewer to the left, or by clicking the "Read More" button below. Have a nice day, Etrian Odyssey fans!!

EO3 Release Date Announced!

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 16, 2010

Today was a good day for EO fans to be an Atlus Faithful. If you checked your e-mail boxes, you received an e-mail of a beautiful ad (seen to the right) announcing EO3 and its long awaited release date.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2010!!

In addition to the spectacular news, the official Etrian Odyssey 3 website has also launched and I'm sure we can expect almost-weekly updates from them.

All I can say is: THANK YOU, ATLUS USA!!!

Zaraf and Negzee's Skill Simulator

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 11, 2010

In case you are not a GameFaqs frequenter and/or you are new to the Etrian Odyssey series, let me give a little background information. Zaraf is the guy on GameFaqs who is responsible for making all of the fabulous and beautiful maps we have for the games. He has been at it since the first game, and it is usually a big collaborative effort.

This project, however, was kept underwraps for a while after Zaraf posted a strange message on the ItL forums asking for a javascript coder and hired up Negzee, one of our forum frequenters. If you have been checking the forums here or at GF, you would know that he about a week ago he finally announced what he had been working on: a Skill Simulator for Etrian Odyssey 3.

ItL is now the proud host of this wonderful project. I'm very honored to be hosting it since it is not something he can place up on GameFaqs. It's a very beautiful program. All of the controls and how-to's are listed on the intro page, so be sure to read it. They put some tremendous time and effort into it and it just looks fantastic.

I can't wait for the game to come over to our shores so I will be able to use it. It will be updated then as necessary. Check back with us here in the future and we'll announce any updates or changes he has made.

GREAT JOB GUYS!! Your hard work really shows!

More EO3 map pieces done

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 9, 2010

So, I've got the third stratum all chopped up into little map pieces and I have the Item Point, Treasure, and Camp Site Locations guide updated with them.

I'm in such a hurry to get these done before something comes up in my life. Putting the guides together and filling in blanks will make my life so much easier in the future.

Also: I picked up the new article in Nintendo Power. Really isn't very much to it. I'll type it up later - sometime late tomorrow - and throw it up. Seriously, it was kind of a let down to someone who already knew about the game and its features. It's definitely just an article geared for the target audience of semi-ignorant Nintendo players and not rabid EO fans XD . As for english screenshots. There's like... five of them? Not much. I'm sure we'll be seeing MUCH much more though in the future when the lock on Atlus USA starts peeling away. Still no sign of an official website yet.

Edit: Err... all of my avatars as of late seem to be female. Haha, my apologies. I promise, my next post avatar will be male. But... they are just so cute~

EO3 Approximate Release Date: Fall

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 7, 2010

According to Zachary, who e-mailed me (thank you!), the Nintendo Power magazine article lists more of the same. However, there was one new small bit of news: an ambiguous release date set for this Fall. Still... it's something more than we had before.

Again, I'll be picking the magazine up this Wednesday. I will type up the article myself (but please do not expect scans... not for a few months).

EOIII Treasure guide updated

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 7, 2010

Fwoooosh~ already got a second update up for the same guide. The Item Points, Treasure, and Camp Locations guide has been updated to include Stratum 2! Hopefully this week I'll be able to get even more work done.

REMEMBER: The July edition of Nintendo Power is supposed to be put out on shelves tomorrow. Be sure to pick it up for the Etrian Odyssey III article, which will hopefully have some more news and information for us. Or at least open the flood gates on Atlus USA.

I will be picking my copy up this Wednesday when I go out, so if you have any news before then: please don't hesitate to contact me and tell me!

Treasure guide for Etrian Odyssey III

Author: Maxine MagicFox, June 6, 2010

So, I spent all morning chopping up Zaraf's maps for the first stratum of the third game, and I've now completed the guide for the first stratum. The guide is: Item Points, Treasure, and Camp Locations. This is for those gamers who need a little help but don't want to look at the full map for fear of over-spoiling.

Well... to be honest, though, there's not much real information on it. Apart from coordinates there's no other information such as the rewards from chests and item points. Please, if you have this information, feel free to provide it. If now, we'll wait on the english game and/or until Zaraf updates his guides.

He did have some information on the first map in terms of items, but they were in Japanese.
