Atlus has confirmed that Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan will be heading to the U.S. and Europe in 2013 for the 3DS.

“Marking the series’ arrival on the Nintendo 3DS, Legends of the Titan introduces a wide range of enhancements and additions, including a greatly improved graphics engine with polygonal enemies and special effects designed to take full advantage of the platform’s unique 3D capabilities,” the publisher said. “As with previous games in the series, players explore beautiful yet menacing realms – each varied in flora and fauna – mapping their journey along the way using the touch screen and their stylus.”

“No two games are ever the same, thanks to a character creation and party customization system that encourages experimentation and rewards creativity and imagination.”

“Moreover, while Legends of the Titan – built with older hardcore gamers in mind – is still a brutal challenge and not for the faint of heart, a new Casual mode option ensures newcomers to the series and genre need not be intimidated.”

So if you’re after a slightly more old-school hardcore RPG then this is for you.
