ConsoleNameDeveloperLucca's Observations
3DSEtrian Odyssey NexusAtlusA love letter to the series, taking elements from EOI-IV; goes back to the subclassing system, a very very large number of maps to traverse

JP DSBlood of BahamutThink & FeelGiant monster-slaying ARPG with mission-based structure
JP DSTales of the TempestDimps/Namco Tales StudioA short spinoff title from the mainline series, but plays as you've come to expect; a very polarizing game
JP FCHoshi wo Miru HitoAnother/Hot-BKusoge of legend, incomplete translation but left up here for lulz
JP Game GearMadou Monogatari II: Arle 16-SaiCompileMore Arle doing Arle stuff, but she's 16 now!
