All Articles: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight
Nintendo has big plans for the Virtual Console this month as Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Onimusha Tactics are now available to download through the Wii U eShop. The strategy RPGs, both originally released for the Game Boy Advance, are the first two games released as part of Nintendo’s “Classic Games For Hardcore Gamers” promotion.
Also available this week is Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight, a remake of the second Etrian Odyssey game. The 3DS RPG from Atlus includes a completely original Story Mode and the original Etrian Odyssey 2 game with “updated graphics and a full roster of classes.”
Finally this week, Picross E6 will delight fans of the “Picture Crossword” series with 300 new puzzles.
More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. (more…)
Only two new games will be available in stores this week… but they’re both so massive that players who are interested in purchasing them will be busy for a very long time.
First up is Rare Replay for the Xbox One. This compilation brings together 30 games from Rare’s three-decade history and offers 10,000 Gamerscore for truly dedicated Achievement hunters. Additional bonuses include a Challenge Mode and 60 minutes of behind-the-scenes interviews and footage. If you were a fan of Battletoads, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, R.C. Pro Am, Killer Instinct Gold, Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, and many others… welcome home.
Also available this week is Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight, an RPG for the 3DS from Atlus. Though it should be noted that Atlus actually looks at The Fafnir Knight as two games in a single package. In addition to being an enhanced remake of Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Laggard, The Fafnir Knight also includes a brand new “Untold” Story Mode that explores the relationship between the titular hero and Princess Arianna as the battle through the ruins of Ginnungagap and the Yggdrasil Labyrinth.
If neither of these games tickles your fancy, don’t worry, a large of downloadable titles will be added to the digital storefronts later this week.
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.
