While we covered two Nintendo DS remakes coming to the Nintendo 3DS from Atlus, they also have a brand new title. Atlus and Spike Chunsoft announced Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 for the Nintendo 3DS which expected to launch in August 31 in Japan for 6,480 yen ($58 USD).
The company announced that all first print copies of Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 will include a two-disc “User’s Best Album” containing popular songs from the Etrian Odyssey series. Atlus is allowing users to vote for what tracks make it into the Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2‘s “User’s Best Album” OST by voting here. Votes end in April 9th. The OST will be housed in a digipak case that will be illustrated by Yuji Himukai. Since the Etrian Odyssey soundtracks, including Etrian Mystery Dungeon, are done by Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Revenge of Shinobi) this is probably something that will appeal to SEGA fans.
But wait there’s more! Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 will also be getting a Etrian Odyssey 10th Anniversary Box limited edition that will cost 9,800 yen ($88 USD) and will include a copy of the game, special box, and a 200 page Character Art Works book featuring art from all the Etrian Odyssey series.

“I want to go to the base of the Yggdrasil Tree no matter what it takes.”
Just who is this girl? Why does she want to go to the Yggdrasil Tree? Frequently clear “mystery dungeons” and, together with the girl, head for the distant Yggdrasil Tree!”
