Irvine, Calif. - Oct. 1, 2013 - The journey in Etria begins today with Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl (EOU), the much anticipated Nintendo 3DS title developed by ATLUS. Although the game is the newest entry of the Etrian Odyssey series, it's a re-imagining of the first Etrian Odyssey, but with plenty of new features and additions to make it a fresh new experience. EOU is an RPG adventure that has addicting dungeon mapping mechanics, intense turn-based combat, challenging enemies, and a series-first Story Mode with beautifully animated cutscenes and excellent voice acting. Etrian Odyssey Untold is now available in stores and in the Nintendo eShop for $39.99.
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl offers two full-length experiences: The expanded story mode takes players on a journey to unravel the mystery of the Yggdrasil Tree's origins, and the classic mode updates the original Etrian Odyssey with new dungeon layouts and challenges . Both versions feature the same gameplay conveniences, updated 3D graphics, and StreetPass functionality as in Etrian Odyssey IV.
The story mode, a first for the series, gives players five pre-made characters, each with their own personalities and dialogue to explore a side of Etria not seen in the first game. Gameplay is interspersed with animated cutscenes by MADHOUSE animation, and with more than 3,000 lines of dialogue, voice acting, and more.
The chart-making mechanic Etrian Odyssey games are renowned for returns, along with first-person dungeon exploring and intense, turn-based combat in new dungeon layouts. EOU also brings new difficulty modes, which can be changed at any time: "Picnic" and "Standard" mode are for players new to RPGs or the Etrian Odyssey series, while "Expert" adds new challenges for veteran adventurers.
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system for $39.99. Pre-orders and the first run of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl are getting the "Untold, Unseen, Unheard" bonuses.
The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. For more information, including updates on the game, please visit the official website at: http://www.atlus.com/untold.
