Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold is coming to North America this summer, publisher Atlus announced today. The upcoming 3DS game is, like Etrian Odyssey Untold before it, a remake of EO2 with new options and a story mode.
Just in time for Persona Q, Atlus has announced Etrian Odyssey V—a fifth entry in their addictive dungeon-crawler-RPG series. Teaser trailer (in Japanese) above.
Well, really, it's more than a remake: in addition to the "classic" mode that keeps the first Etrian Odyssey's dungeon crawling intact, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl has a "story" mode that sets you up with a predefined party (and extra cut-scenes)!
Famitsu reports that Etrian Odyssey: Millenium Maiden, the new, story-focused dungeon crawler coming out in Japan on June 27, will have cutscenes and an animated opening. Cutscenes and an animated opening done by Madhouse, of Trigun, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Paprika fame, no less.
When I was a young whelp, back when my writing career involved pictures of dragons and a black-and-white spiral notebook, I spent a lot of time playing the first Final Fantasy.
Sometimes the pain just hurts so good. Etrian Odyssey IV, I love to hate you.
Monsters! Maps! Flying zeppelins! Dungeon crawling!
3DS game Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is headed to North America in early 2013, said Atlus.
