Atlus has announced the upcoming release of Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight onto 3DS systems this summer.

A Partial List Of Nintendo's 2015 Lineup

The new title is more of a remix of Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard for the Nintendo DS, featuring dungeons, characters and weapons from the recent Etrian Odyssey Untold. The Untold portion adds 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 Chloe. Misadventures are sure to follow.

The game marks the seventh entry into the Etrian series (or eighth if you want to count Persona Q as a sort of spiritual guide) and features two single player modes for your enjoyment. "Classic mode revisits the original Etrian Odyssey 2 with updated graphics, player conveniences, and a full roster of classes. Story mode features a fixed party, but includes voiced dialogue, animated cutscenes and a bittersweet arc that explores the relationship between Arianna and the Fafnir Knight."

But what, pray tell, is a Fafnir Knight? He's the newest class to the considerable variety of the series whose big power is the ability to turn into a demon. Which, we have to admit is a very metal thing to do.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight will be out this summer exclusively on 3DS and will be priced at $49.99. Watch the cinematic trailer below! Pre-order the game HERE.
