The highlight of the Nintendo Direct was Atlus announcing Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection. Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection features remasters of the first three Etrian Odyssey games in the form of Etrian Odyssey HD, Etrian Odyssey II HD, and Etrian Odyssey III HD. The games in the collection will also be sold individually and will be released with new features and improvements for Nintendo Switch and Steam. Watch the trailer below:

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection features

  • Survive a vast, labyrinthian forest on the edge of a peaceful village in Etrian Odyssey HD, journey to a floating castle in the sky in Etrian Odyssey II HD, and be transported to an oceanic paradise and rumors of a drowned city in Etrian Odyssey III HD.
  • Touch screen mapping functionality for the Nintendo Switch: Plot your progress through the labyrinth, drawing walls and placing icons to note special events and resources
  • Newly remastered graphics, remastered soundtrack and quality of life improvements, including difficulty selection and save slots
  • Easy access to the Monstrous Codex, quest log and skill tree
  • Maximize your adventuring by optimizing your party, and choose the character classes that work for your playstyle

Pre-orders are now live. Check it out on Steam here. Check out the official website here. The pre-order bonus includes portraits from Persona 5, Soul Hackers, Shin Megami Tensei, and more.

I can’t believe it will have taken over six years since the Switch launched to get an Etrian Odyssey game on the platform. Hopefully this is the start of many Etrian Odyssey releases on multiple platforms.

Etrian Odyssey Origins collection launches on June 1 for Nintendo Switch and Steam.
