New Etrian Odyssey 2: Knight of Fafnir

Famitsu this week reveals New Etrian Odyssey 2: Knight of Fafnir for 3DS.

Due out winter 2014 in Japan, the game is the sequel to last year’s Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl, featuring a new protagonist and characters. Madhouse is doing the animated scenes, and Kanako Ito is doing the theme song.

Here’s the cast:

  • Protagonist – voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa
  • Arianna – voiced by Risa Taneda
  • Flavio – voiced by Daisuke Namikawa
  • Beltran – voiced by Keiji Fujiwara
  • Chloe – voiced by Yuka Iguchi

There appears to be a new gameplay element where the protagonist can “transform” during battle, Famitsu teases.

    Take my money

  • RyoonZ

    Nice. I love story mode.
    Edit: The protagonist looks like he took some fashion sense from Vagrant Story.

  • Vayne

    Dammit, I never played this series so far. Really wanted to try this game.

  • Guest

    We need 7th dragon 2020 sequel or vita remake :P

  • sakanaとkoeda

    …except for mage girl, she can go di- design magical contact lenses to wear.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Male MC and 3/5 male party AGAIN?

    Don’t they know that people play this for parties full of cute girls?

  • OlimacFTW

    Hype intensifies!

  • ShadowFang

    More Etrian Odyssey is only a good thing!

    Glad to see EO return! Looking forward to Persona Q and all, but I like Etrian Odyssey more. I’m hoping that that game brings more gamers over to check out this series.

  • PrinceHeir

    I guess i don’t need to buy the original 3rd one since they’ll probably remake it as well and announced it next year ^^

  • Santashi

    I hope this game won’t be a faff!

    I’m sure it will be good, despite what the title says. ;)

  • Willgaea

    Is that guys hand in a oven mitt, or does he only have one arm?

    Edit: the trailer solved my dilemma. That caption picture is something else.

  • Hexodious

    What do you mean?

  • Mozendo

    Can’t you say the same about every game in Europe? Or At least on Nintendo consoles?

  • MyBodyIsReady

    Etrian odyssey 4 is $23 (£13 or so) on and £30 on amazon UK, for example. Then theres the fact we get it much later, and never get any sales. Just your classic Atlus shenanigans have put me off this franchise, which is a shame cos I wana play it

  • Hexodious

    The original Etrian Odyssey game cost €19,99 over here while all the other titles from the franchise ranges from €28 to €38, the games are mostly €38 over here anyways. So I can kinda relate.
