Fire Emblem: Awakening was released this week already, so my pain levels are already being satiated enough. However, gamers who could do with just a little more punishment in their lives might want to check out the Etrian Odyssey IV: Legend of the Titan demo on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
If you are new to the series, it is the closest you can find on a professional scale to the old first person dungeon crawlers from the early days of RPGs. Wizardy and Might and Magic come to mind. The other Etrian Odyssey games are just as brutal, so don’t let the cute anime graphics fool you. Don’t worry too much about missing the plot lines of the other games because they are hardly the focus.
Atlus has also scattered QR codes around the Internet which grant special in demo items. One can be found at the game’s official blog, and another can be seen at he end of this YouTube tutorial. More are expected to turn up on the game’s Facebook page until its scheduled release on February 26th.
