Etrian Odyssey Untold demo hits the Nintendo 3DS eShop

Posted by: Russell at 9/17/2013 6:41 PM
In a couple weeks my upcoming review of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl should be hitting the site as the October 1st launch date draws closer.  For those wondering what the game is like prior to my review, Atlus has released a demo on the Nintendo 3DS eShop that you can download and check out.  Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is somewhat of a remake of the first game in the Etrian Odyssey series that was released for the Nintendo DS back in 2007.  The demo for the newest game in the series will allow you to go through the first two floors of the main dungeon as well as the first floor of a new dungeon.  This will allow you to get a feel for how things work, and if you like what you played the full game will have the option of carrying over your data from the demo so you won't have to start from scratch...unless you want to of course.

To celebrate the launch of the demo, Atlus has released a video that's centered around one of the game's characters that you'll be using: Simon.  Simon is a medic and the video shows off his skills in battle.  Leveling him up properly can unlock more powerful skills, including a skill to cure status ailments from multiple characters at once.  Quite useful, especially when going up against multiple enemies that can poison your party in a single turn.
 



Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl Demo Now Available in Nintendo eShop
 
IRVINE, Calif. - Sept. 16, 2013 - It's time to go exploring in Etrian Odyssey Untold. Beginning today, the land of Etria is ready to explore thanks to a demo available in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. The demo will make available the first few stages of the Story mode, and as a bonus to early adventurers, saved progress in the demo will transfer over to the full game when it releases on Oct. 1. Etrian Odyssey Untold's Story mode is a first for the series, and will feature a set party and animated cutscenes, which users will be able to sample in the demo.
 
The full version of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl will be available in stores and in the Nintendo eShop beginning on Oct. 1. Pre-orders and a limited first-run retail printing of the game will include "Etrian Odyssey Untold, Unseen, Unheard," a limited-edition collectible with artwork, comics, and production notes, as well as a seven-track CD from series composer Yuzo Koshiro.
 
Etrian Odyssey Untold is a game in two parts: the first part is a story-driven first-person adventure into the world of Etria. Appropriate for players new to the series and veterans alike, the story mode gives players five pre-made characters, each with their own personalities and dialogue to explore a side of Etria not seen in the first game. Adventurers must brave new dungeon layouts, floors, and enemies to find out the truth behind the Yggdrasil Tree, and the mysterious Millennium Girl, Frederica Irving.
 
For series veterans, Classic mode offers the traditional Etrian Odyssey gameplay, which is updated to the latest conveniences found in Etrian Odyssey IV, including full 3-D graphics and the inclusion of the new  Grimoire Stone System, which allows players to expand their party members' skills and even learn the skills of enemies.
 
The game also includes animated opening and story cutscenes by MADHOUSE Inc., and voiceovers for the story and battle scenes and the option for orchestrated background music.
 
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl will be available on Oct. 1 exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. Details and pre-order information are on the official game website, http://www.atlus.com/untold

Etrian Odyssey Untold's Simon -- The Medic
 
SIMON YORKE - MEDIC
 
The brains of the operation among the Midgard Library investigation team, Simon is as skilled with a blade as he is with a bandage. His passion for research means he's rarely at a disadvantage, whether he's dealing with enemies he's read about somewhere or negotiating passage with foreign governments.
 
His natural expertise lies in his medical training, allowing him to get a party member back on their feet after a serious or even mortal wound. Should anyone suffer a status ailment or bind, he can alleviate that as well. Beyond that, the Grimoire Stone he carries gives him a few swordsman's tricks, making him a capable combat medic.
