The embodiment of adventure and discovery in the purest sense, Etrian Odyssey III transports gamers to a sparkling oceanic paradise filled with atmospheric dungeons to chart and survey, vast watery expanses to sail across, and rumors of a sunken city to investigate.  Aspiring explorers are responsible for charting their travels utilizing the intuitive touchscreen map editor, meaning that careless cartography could easily spell doom for a fatigued party trying to escape danger.  Powerful challenges demand cunning and strategy: players will assemble and fully customize their party of adventurers from a variety of highly specialized classes and sub-classes.  For the patient and prepared, fame and fortune await.

Off tranquil ocean shores, far below the surface of the sea, the city of Armoroad bears a secret.  Rumor suggests that this coastal metropolis is less than it once was; much of it, they whisper, was lost to the unforgiving waters.  Will you assemble and train a team of explorers to uncover once and for all what really lies beneath, or will you succumb to the innumerable dangers hidden in the abyssal depths?

"Forests Of Eternity" is a pre-order bonus art book for Atlus' upcoming Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City. With 60 pages of premium, full-color art work, "Forests Of Eternity" is the ultimate Etrian Odyssey collectible, featuring designs and sketches spanning the entire Etrian Odyssey series.

"From the sparking beauty of Armoroad and its broad azure horizon, to the haunting depths of the waters off its coast, Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City is a visual treat, offering explorers a world full of varied, colorful locales to discover," stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus.  "As such, the addition of a premium 60-page, full-color art book for fans who pre-order feels like the perfect complement.  What makes 'Forests Of Eternity' even more appealing, however, is the fact that it boasts designs and sketches not just from The Drowned City, but from the first and second Etrian Odyssey games as well.  It truly is the ultimate collectible for series fans." 

"Forests Of Eternity," the official Etrian Odyssey III pre-order bonus, is only available from participating retailers while supplies last.
