ATLUS has revealed that Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl (EOU) will be releasd this summer and will offer two full length experiences: The expanded story mode takes players on a journey to unravel the mystery of the Yggdrasil Tree’s origins, and the classic mode updates the original Etrian Odyssey. Both versions feature the same gameplay conveniences, updated 3D graphics, and StreetPass abilities as in Etrian Odyssey IV. Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS system, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl will be released in stores and in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS simultaneously.
The biggest addition to Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl is the story mode – a first for the series. The story mode gives players five pre-made characters, each with their own personalities and dialogue to explore a side of Etria not seen in the first game. Adventurers must brave new dungeon layouts, floors and enemies to find out the truth behind the Yggdrasil Tree, and the mysterious girl, Frederica. Also new to the series is the Grimoire Stone system, available in both modes. In previous Etrian Odyssey games, skills were set to specific classes, but by collecting, synthesizing, and equipping Grimoire Stones, players can hybridize their party to excel in combat. With the right Grimoire Stones, combatants can even learn powerful enemy skills.
To take full advantage of the Nintendo 3DS system’s power, EOU features animated opening and story cutscenes, there will also be voiceovers for the story and battle scenes and the option for orchestrated background music. Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl releases this summer exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS and will be available simultaneously in retail stores and in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
