Atlus’ brand new Etrian Mystery Dungeon might have hit the video game market this week, but it is not the only Etrian Odyssey game we’ll be seeing in the States this year. Etrian Odyssey II Untold: The Fafnir Knight will also be debuting this summer, and a new trailer shines a light on the rad dude you’ll be controlling.
The warrior, whose name you will decide, is a bodyguard of the Princess Arianna. I’m presuming that she is the purple haired girl who has popped up in all of the trailers. The two have been friends since childhood, and, having grown up alongside her, he defends her out of not only duty but also friendship.
He has the ability to tap into a power called Fafnir, which allows him to turn into a beastly character and improve his powers dramatically. Etrian Odyssey II Untold’s added story mode will put the source of these powers at the center of its plot.
Etrian Odyssey II Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be released this summer for the Nintendo 3DS. Hopefully, fans aren’t too burned out from Etrian Mystery Dungeon to pass it up. These games can be quite grueling, and two a year seems like a lot to chew. We already went through that in 2013.
