Atlus is gearing up for Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan‘s February 26th release, announcing today that anyone who preorders or picks the game up at launch will receive an art book and music CD that will be limited to first print copies of the game. The full-color book will contain game art, staff commentary, and a new illustration by Alexandra Douglass (if you’re not familiar with her work, go check it out here). The CD will comprise of early versions of songs from the game by composer Yuzo Koshiro, along with some tracks that can only be heard on the CD.
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan will launch in February in North America as both an eShop download and retail release, but considering those who pick up a retail copy will get all these extra goodies for no additional cost, it’s hard not to recommend the physical version. The game’s release will mark one of the first “hardcore” JRPGs to come out on the 3DS in English, but this time around the notoriously-difficult dungeon crawler will have an easy mode for newcomers to the series.
Atlus is well known for their limited print runs, so don’t wait to get in your preorder if you want that CD and art book!
