EtrianOdysseyUntold 2Let’s move into our first game for this week, Etrian Odyssey Untold 2: The Fafnir Knight (3DS), essentially two games in one. The first, an update to Entrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard, all new dungeon layouts, revamped graphics, and system improvements from the recent Etrian Odyssey Untold. The second part being the Untold portion – this consists of a new story mode with a fixed party, voiced dialogue, and animated cutscenes which follow the captivating tale of the Fafnir Knight and Princess Arianna. The Untold section of the game has a strong focus on characters and their interactions as the story about Fafnir Knight & Princess Arianna unravels during their adventure into the ruins of Ginnungagap and the Yggdrasil Labyrinth with flavio, Bertrand and Chloe.
