Etrian Odyssey Untold's boxart and release date
Despite reported problems at its parent company, Atlus USA will still release Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl to North America this fall, delivering the 3DS remake for the series’ first game on October 1 for $39.99 — no word yet if there will be any extra thrown in with retail copies.
I tried this out at E3, and it played and looked a lot like Etrian Odyssey IV, updating the original 2007 game with 3D graphics, an orchestrated soundtrack option, animated cutscenes from Madhouse, fresh dungeon layouts, and other new content and conveniences.
There’s also the new Story Mode with pre-made characters, a first for the series. I asked Atlus what was the deal with the game’s story trailer spoiling a late-game twist from the original Etrian Odyssey, and I was told that presumably it’s not seen as a big spoiler in this one, as it looks like that big reveal is sacrificed to introduce key plot points early in the campaign.
