Another new class has been revealed for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth - the Therian Masurao, a katana-wielding warrior with unique skills that can help in and out of battle.

Masurao can be utilised in a variety of ways, such as the ability to specialise in one sword or wield up to four at once, and can attack multiple enemies in a single swipe if battling from the front row.

They also have a special skill called New Challenger, which can be used to lure rarer enemies into battle - these can then give more experience when beaten, and drop more money and better items.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth launches on 17 October in North America, and later this year in Euroe.

Do you know what's really effective against the deadly creatures that call the Yggdrasil tree home? If you said katanas, you're absolutely right! Luckily, the Therian Masurao in Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth just so happens to delight in slicing and dicing with beautifully crafted Japanese swords. They can be slotted in the frontline to slash everything in their path and can even attack multiple opponents in a single attack. Oh, they can also lure rare enemies into combat to get better items and gain more experience with the New Challenger skill. The better the skill, the rarer the enemies, and the greater the rewards! The Masurao can specialize in using one sword to become a master of the blade or it can learn to wield up to four of them and become a bona fide sword saint.
