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*

Trailer, Character Video, and Guildhouse Info

Author: Maxine MagicFox, May 17, 2013

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.


The Guildhouse

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!

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!

Millennium Girl's classic mode includes some new features

Author: Ex-Lurker, May 3, 2013

The Millennium Girl dev blog spouted out a little more important information today. Along with these pictures of Frederica's hair style, the developer also tells us that the classic mode will not be a perfect recreation of the old school Etrian Odyssey. Millennium Girls classic mode will also include Grimoires, the books which can give characters skills from other jobs. As well, it will allow you access to the Guild House, for quests.

There's sure to be a couple dozen (hundred) new strategies to keep you entertained even if you mastered Etrian Odyssey one, so newbies and Labyrinth dwellers alike should be on the look out for Millennium Girl news.
