Atlus crossover Etrian Mystery Dungeon welcomes map-makers and roguelike-ramblers on April 7. as shown in yesterday's news-stuffed Nintendo Direct. It's $40 for the pleasure of more chartwork, and Atlus is chucking in a free soundtrack with pre-orders and a "limited first-run printing." The new due date applies to North America's retail shelves and eShop, and there's no word yet on a European release.

To see how Etrian Mystery Dungeon fuses its franchises, check out the latest trailer below the break. The 3DS game draws character classes and skill trees from the Etrian Odyssey series, while the randomly-generated dungeons and the top-down monster-mashing have a distinct Mystery Dungeon flavor. It's still an Etrian game, however, so you can expect to scribble out some maps on the 3DS' bottom screen.

Ah yes, the Landsknecht. This swordsman has always been the meat and potatoes of the Etrian series, and it's no different for Etrian Mystery Dungeon. With a modest amount of defense and some hard hitting damage, early parties will lean heavily on the Landsknecht for staying alive. With a few skills, Landsknechts can focus down enemies with devastating melee hits or whittle away at rooms full of critters with AOE attacks.

But don't take my word for it, see for yourself in this character class trailer!
