Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl release date announced
The latest entry in Atlus’ dungeon-crawling series, Etrian Odyssey now has a release date! Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl will hit shelves on October 1st. The Millennium Girl will include many features that made Etrian Odyssey the hit series it is, but a host of new items have also been included, such as the new Story mode. Story Mode will feature five premade characters and a story-driven dungeon to introduce players to the series, but also provide a more structured experience. Don’t worry though, Classic mode still exists, so you can create your own party and do as much dungeon-crawling as you want unhindered my plot.
The new Story mode intrigues me because Atlus has a history of creating engaging stories (these are the guys that brought you the Ogre Battle series AND the Persona Series). I don’t expect much from the Story mode, and worst case scenario, you can just dive into the game with Classic mode and none shall be the wiser. The new 3-D graphics will also be a fun addition, although I don’t really feel the series needed the graphical upgrade. Sprites worked fine in the past, but I am hardly one to spurn advancement.
