Explore a brand new story in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold this summer
Attention dungeon dwellers: Atlus has announced today that Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be making its way to the Nintendo 3DS this summer. The game will feature the “two-games-in-one” style of gameplay like the first Etrian Odyssey Untold game: story mode and classic mode. The story mode features a fixed party of adventurers, voiced dialogue, fully animated cutscenes and centers around the exploits of the game’s titular Fafnir Knight.
Here’s a list of features for the game courtesy of Atlus:
- Creatures of Comfort: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold is the seventh entry in the Etrian franchise (eighth if you count Persona Q, and you know we do) and has a level of refinement that could only come from consumer feedback. Improved systems and mapping make Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold one of the most approachable Etrian titles to date.
- Untold Classics: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold has two ways to play the game, continuing the tradition of the Untold franchise. Classic mode revisits the original Etrian Odyssey 2 with updated graphics, player conveniences, and a full roster of classes. Story mode features a fixed party, but includes voiced dialogue, animated cutscenes and a bittersweet arc that explores the relationship between Arianna and the Fafnir Knight.
- What the Fafnir? The titular knight is the Fafnir class and is a never-before-seen addition to the Etrian franchise. He has the ability to transform into a beastly demonic form, which enhances his attributes and abilities, and is only available in the Story mode.
- Bring a Blanket: Just as in Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl and Persona Q, in addition to normal difficulty, players can choose Picnic mode for a low-difficulty experience or the masochi… er, veterans amongst them can choose Expert mode for a punishing play-through.
