Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold The Fafnir Knight (3DS) Chloe and City Trailer  - Header

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold hits stores and online outlets next week, and today marks the final character reveal for Chloe, the party’s War Magus. As the resident mage, Chloe will be the first to summon when in need of health, resurrection, or debuffs. Her abilities work well with other storyline characters, as well as those the player can recruit when going through the game in classic mode. She is a touch brusque, though. Her trailer can be found below, along with another video that describes how the old town-improvement mechanic works with the new ability to set up advertising campaigns for the local eatery.

Traitors abound in new tactical RPG for PS3, PS Vita, Lost Dimension

Lost Dimension (PS3, PS TV, PS Vita) Announcement - Screenshot 2

The End is near! (dun duuuun) The enigmatic final boss has made his to Earth in Atlus and Lancarse’s new tactical role-playing game Lost Dimension. Available for PS3 and PS Vita, the turn-based strategy game not only mixes in light role-playing elements via skill trees and varied gear, but it also has a slight twist: traitors. As players ascend a large pillar, they must choose which of their squad is a turncoat in order to progress. If they fail, then they will have to face the traitors before taking on The End, but if they succeed, they will immediately square off against him with a full squad. Experience won’t help, either, as traitors are random for each playthrough. As a bonus, $20 worth of free costume and level DLC is downloadable for free for two weeks.
