Atlus has shared the launch trailer for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, a series celebrating 10 years of the portable 3D dungeon crawling this year.

This is the story of Yggdrasil, the world tree in the land of Arcania.
Children of men pass down an ancient fable: “The power of the gods will be granted there…”
Disciples of magic study an archaic myth: “The great mysteries shall be answered there…”
Descendants of warriors recite their folklore: “The ultimate techniques can be mastered there…”
Nomads of the plains exchange a fairy tale: “The lost treasures must be slumbering there…”
From all across the land of Arcania, each culture pursues its own legends.
They journey to Yggdrasil, yearning to reach the top and meet their destinies.
