With the Japanese release of Etrian Odyssey closing in fast, Atlus of Japan shares a taste of the adventures and characters of Etrian Odyssey as told by Madhouse, the animation studio behind Hunter X Hunter, as well as some of Atlus' other anime OPs.
Shin Etrian Odyssey has been announced for American shores! Retitled as Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, the game is schedule for release some time this Fall!
There is still nothing up on the website as of yet, but there is a placeholder. Visit the Official Atlus USA EO Untold Website.
I never doubted Atlus USA for a second. Aww, this is HAPPY news. Are you excited? I'm excited. I'm super excited!!
A little late (this was released on my birthday) but the last character video has been added to the official Shin Sekaiju no Meikyuu website.
Also added to the website, the official game opening. Now this I placed below the cut because I, personally, do not want to watch it - too spoilerish for me. I'd rather wait until I have the game. But, each to their own! So, just in case others feel the way that I do, it's a little more hidden for your convenience.
The Official Shin Sekaiju no Meikyuu website has released a YouTube video showing off one of its newest cast members: Frederica Irving, the amnesiac girl that is on the cover of the box.
Maybe F.I.A., who is quickly becoming our resident translator, might feel up to translating some things in the comments section again!
The Official Shin Sekaiju no Meikyuu website has released a YouTube video showing off one of its newest cast members: Arthur Charles.
As a bonus, if you are listening closely, at about a minute into the video there's a special music track for those of us that know the first game so well. OMG it's beautiful!!
Remember: this game releases in Japan June 27. Just little over a month away. ... And then we get to sit and pray that Atlus USA will pick up the title. *crosses fingers*
Sorry, some of this news is a little more dated than others. So, without further ado:
First, the trailer above. At first glance it doesn't seem to show off anything new that we haven't seen before. It shows off FOEs, Grimoire Chance, and the Guildhouse (you'll find more information further down in this post about the Guildhouse). At around 2:12 the video suddenly gets far more interesting displaying things like no animation, increased walking speed, and auto-mapping. No, not just the fill-in-the-floor auto-map that we have grown accustomed to since the release of the first game, but an automap that does walls, too. Great for those naysayers against the mapping features.
As part of the new features to the game, there is the Guildhouse - grand central station for all adventurers it seems.
In addition to visiting to set up Grimoires, adventurers can also visit to chow down on food and beverages which add status effects for the next labyrinth outing, and accept requests that offer handsome rewards for those that return.
... Sounds almost as if the Guildhouse may be replacing the Golden Deer Pub? Which is odd considering I know I've seen the pub in the background of certain screens.
And last but not least, our final piece of news!
Atlus character video: Shin EO presents Simon Yorke
On the Official Shin Sekaiju no Meikyuu website, Atlus has released a YouTube video showing off one of its newest cast members: Racoona Sheldon.
Maybe one of our resident translators will feel free to take a stab at some of the content covered, but it is a lot to translate. Still, I'll keep you guys posted in case someone provides a translated transcript of the video!
