With the regular delay of an ATLUS USA Nintendo 3DS title making its way to Australian markets, Nippon Ichi Software America and distributor Bandai Namco Entertainment Australia have finally announced that Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be available in Australia and New Zealand starting February 12th. This release will be available both physically and digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is an enhanced port of the Nintendo DS title Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard, once again presenting the challenging first-person dungeon-crawling RPG mechanics that the series has become known for. This will be the first time that Etrian Odyssey 2 will be available in Australia and New Zealand, as the original never received a PAL release.
Official Blurb on Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight
The next entry of the Etrian Odyssey Untold series is essentially two games in one – the first, a Nintendo 3DS update to Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard (released on Nintendo DS) with new dungeon layouts, new graphics, and system improvements from the recent Etrian Odyssey Untold. The second is the Untold portion – a brand new story mode with a fixed party, voiced dialogue, and animated cutscenes that follows the bittersweet tale of the Fafnir Knight and Princess Arianna. Like Persona Q, the Untold portion of the game has a strong focus on characters and their interactions as the story about the Fafnir Knight and Princess Arianna unfolds as they adventure forth into the ruins of Ginnungagap and the Yggdrasil Labyrinth with the hero Flavio and the two mysterious adventurers, Bertrand and Chloe.
