Japanese Developer Atlus, best known for the Persona series, is bringing the next title in the Etrian Odyssey RPG series to the US this Fall for the 3DS. The new game, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, will be the second title in the series on Nintendo’s newest handheld, following on from the success of Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. It is being touted as a reimaging of the original Etrian Odyssey that debuted on the DS in 2007.
Atlus will once again be employing Japanese animation company Madhouse, who they worked with on Persona 4: Golden and Persona 4: Arena, to provide story cutscenes and voice acting, marking a first for the RPG franchise. The game is also shedding the limitations on class skills found in previous titles, replacing it with a new system, dubbed “Grimoire Stone,” that will allow players to assign skills wherever they choose.
In addition to the game’s Story Mode, there will also be a Classic Mode for the nostalgic gamer, featuring the original game with an extra dash of 3D and three difficulty settings: Picnic, Standard, and Expert.
