We already know Etrian Mystery Dungeon is going to give 3DS owners a taste of tough-as-nails gameplay on April 7, 2015. Turns out, it’s not the only brutal game we’ll love this year. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is making its way in as well. Hurray for unforgiving games!
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold might not be as trying though. Like Etrian Odyssey Untold, it’s a reboot of one of the original installments. In this case, Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard. It offers an easier difficulty level, as well as a defined story mode with original characters that fall into the series now-famous classes.
In this case, players follow a group as they explore the Yggdrasil Labyrinth and Ginnungagap ruins as the Fafnir Knight. Their goal? Explore and learn, while also protecting the Princess Arianna as she undertakes a ceremony at Ginnungagap and the group as a whole learns more about the mystery of the dungeon. It also introduces the Fafnir Knight class to the game, which is a character that can transform into a monster at will.
Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 will be out in Summer 2015 for $49.99. For now, watch the trailer and savor it.
