The gameplay trailer for the remasters of the first three Etrian Odyssey games reveals pre-order bonuses based on Persona 5, 4, and 3.

Today is a good day for fans of portable gaming, now only does it see the review embargo lift for Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp but Atlus has released a gameplay trailer for the recently announced Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection.

Neither franchises are exactly the biggest in the business but they both happen to be GameCentral favourites and the Etrian Collection will include all of the first three games originally released on the Nintendo DS, starting from 2007.

The games are first person dungeon crawlers that work similarly to Atari ST Classic Dungeon Master and are so old school they force you to make your own map as you go – although one of the changes in the remasters is the option for the game to do that itself.

As well as an automapping feature the HD remasters also feature completely redrawn characters spirts and portraits, as well as higher resolution background graphics.

You also get quality of life additions including suspend saves, adjustable difficultly levels, and the option for more translated languages.

If you are doing it manually then you can make your map by using the Switch touchscreen, with the remasters using a vertical split-screen effect. Although we’re not clear how that’s going to be work when docked or on the PC version.

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection will be released in June but if you pre-order then there’s special free DLC relating to Atlus’ Persona series.

If you pay in advance then you can use optional character portraits in Etrian Odyssey 1 for Joker from Persona 5 and Ringo from Soul Hackers 2.

Meanwhile, Etrian Odyssey 2 adds Demi-Fiend from Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne and and Teddie from Persona 4; while Nahobino from Shin Megami Tensei 5 and Aigis from Persona 3 are added to Etrian Odyssey 3.

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection launches on June 1 for Nintendo Switch and PC.
