Who is the Fafnir Knight? After watching a new trailer dedicated to the titular protagonist of Atlus’s Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight, I have to admit I’m still not sure.
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold is a remake of Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard, which was originally released for the DS in 2008. In addition to enhanced graphics and new dungeon layouts, this remake will include a special Story Mode “that explores the relationship between Princess Arianna and the Fafnir Knight”:
The next entry of the Etrian Odyssey Untold series is essentially two games in one — the first, a Nintendo 3DS update to Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard (released on Nintendo DS) with new dungeon layouts, new graphics, and system improvements from the recent Etrian Odyssey Untold.
The second is the Untold portion — a brand new story mode with a fixed party, voiced dialogue, and animated cutscenes that follows the bittersweet tale of the Fafnir Knight, Princess Arianna, Flavio— another hero of the Midgard Library— and the two adventurers, Bertrand and Chole. The five meet while exploring the Ginnugagap ruins, and then after the misfortune unfolds, they venture back and forth between the Yggdrasil Labyrinth and Ginnungagap, slowly working their way to discovering the origins of the Fafnir Knight.
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be released exclusivelt fort he 3DS this Summer.
