Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is not only a mouthful, but an upcoming entry into the famed mobile dungeon crawling franchise. Specifically, it’s the next in the line of 3DS remasters of the original Etrian Odysseys. This time it’s a remake of Etrian Odyssey 2 for the DS.
The Fafnir Knight boasts hammered-out systems that make this game “one of the most approachable Etrian titles to date”, and two ways to play. Classic, the remake of Etrian 2 sporting updated graphics and features to bring it in line with recent entries, and “Untold”, a brand-new story mode with full voice acting, animated cutscenes and a fixed party.
The game will also feature the adjustable difficulty options from the original Untold and the recent spin-off Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Players will be able to lower the game to Picnic mode for an easier time experiencing the story, or raise it to Expert mode for a much more challenging experience.
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is coming to 3DS digitally and physically this summer at the rather hefty, but probably worthwhile, price of $49.99.
