Atlus is revisiting their past this fall with Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl. The follow-up to the fantastic Etrian Odyssey IV is a remake of the first Etrian Odyssey, and will feature two modes that will offer both new and traditional play styles. An expanded story mode will delve deeper into the origins of the Yggdrasil Tree, with greater character interaction and cutscenes, while a classic mode will feature the mechanic improvements but retain the series’ traditional style. Both versions will feature the same updated mechanics (3D graphics, StreetPass support, etc.) introduced in EOIV.
The story mode will feature five pre-made characters, each with their own dialog and personalities, exploring new dungeons, fighting new enemies, and interacting more than in previous titles. Madhouse, the studio behind Persona 4 Golden and 3 Arena’s cutscenes, will be providing the intro and story cutscenes. Classic mode is for fans of the traditional map-charting, class-customizing approach. It does, however, introduce new difficulty modes, with three in total: Expert, Picnic, and Standard. Both versions will support the new Grimoire Stone system, which will allow characters to learn other classes’ skills by collecting, sythensizing and equipping Grimoire Stones.

Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl will be available this fall for 3DS in stores and online via Nintendo’s eShop.
