Sekaiju no Meikyuu X makes no attempt to hide how it is made for fans of the series, and offers a spectacular array of elements and gimmicks guaranteed to satisfy long-time adventurers of the world-tree labyrinths.
Etrian Odyssey Nexus is the densest entry in the series to date. The sheer number of things to do, quests to complete, and party compositions to experiment with means that people like me will have a blast crafting a squad and watching as it climbs increasingly higher walls with each new labyrinth explored. From the vast number of customization options for classes, the variety of challenges to overcome on each floor, and the ever-present cartography mechanic, this is a game that is perfectly suited and developed with longtime fans in mind. Even if you’re not, the sheer number of things present here makes it a worthwhile entry point for newcomers. Nexus is the best Etrian Odyssey has ever been, and it’s a fitting swan song for its time on the 3DS.
Etrian Odyssey Nexus embraces nearly everything that the series has established so far in one final farewell package. It doesn't do anything new or unexpected, but it's a nice nostalgic bow on what has been a standout series on the DS and 3DS, and the systems are as solid as ever. Now, we'll have to see how Atlus chooses to adapt the series for the future.
Although I prefer Beyond the Myth by a slight margin, Etrian Odyssey Nexus offers a familiar and rewarding dungeon crawling adventure that retro RPG fans will surely appreciate. Now that the series is done on 3DS, here's hoping we can play the next one on Switch!
It's going to be hard seeing Etrian Odyssey go... but it needs to. Without that mapping component, it would lose its core and soul, and with Etrian Odyssey Nexus, we've got a near-complete realisation of everything Etrian Odyssey has stood for for so many years. This is a good place to finish what has become a beloved series for many. Perhaps there will even be another dual screen handheld down the track, but in the meantime, farewell, dear friend!
Etrian Odyssey Nexus is a satisfying culmination of all the games thus far, even if there’s very little to set it apart from its predecessors. Wherever the series goes next, I hope there is at least enough of a change to shake up the all-too-familiar formula these games are known for.
