I'm looking forward to this, but I'm also skeptical considering the stuff that happened with The Millennium Girl. While the second game is much more balanced than the first, it does also have its own issues that make it fun when compared to the third and especially the fourth games, such as (obviously) the Hexer still being broken, and Climax causing instant death to anything not immune to the "ailment" when they're under 55% health. Since there's more balance, hopefully making it actually balanced won't make it boring like Millennium Girl did.

I don't exactly have high hopes with the quality (and pricing) with the way Atlus has been doing things as of late, but I hope it's brought over nonetheless. It's my favourite series and this is the hardest game in said series.

As long as they get the focus off lolli service, I don't care what they do to balance the game. Eo is eo, just set the options for fluff off.

Atlus (bless them and their localization team still) has produced nothing but shit for the last six months. It's time for a solid product again.

What have they released in the last six months? As far as I know they've put out nothing since... P4 Arena?

Browser scrap, conception II, ultimax fare and a European localization. Keep the good stuff flowing, I say.

Conception isn't them though, that was Spike Chunsoft who they are partnered with for localizations. Anything bad with the Atlus stamp usually isn't them, but a localization forced on them from their parent company.

that's usually true. lennis solvis (or whatever the localized name of that browser WW mash was called sucked though). And ultimax is a complete fanservice. No balancing old characters, as per their third pr, I mean, what. Chie needs it.

They always deliver with the eo though. And Persona Q looks awesome, too. Maybe only because of the EO influence, but still...

I think it's more they don't care much for competition balance because they want to use the game to tell a story. That's why you had several hours of scenes per fight in Arena.

Competitive retooling is secondary and that's on ArcSys who is the one actually making the gameplay part of the game.

you're right, but Atlus is the one who put out the pr that said only the new characters would be "worked into the existing roster". The game was originally unbalanced, I'm only pegging them for supporting that claim, much like the first few months that Capcom ignored the problems with SFIV.

Different beasts in a lot of regards, I'm just disappointed that I haven't had any atlus games to look forward to in months (until now). sours

Worst possible news since the (now dead due to pay 2 win) iOS Etrian. Untold was already very meh, with the mostly meh predefined party, the awful main character and the neglected classic mode (you couldn't even get all enemies/items in classic mode...)

Instead of a NEW Etrian, we get this. Will skill it just like I skipped the Persona Etrian. Just not a direction this series should have taken.

I bet they still haven't figured out how multiple save files work.

bluexy I think there's a typo:

Yet here's the answer, as it appears Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 will happen and Etrian Odyssey IV will remain in development, or perhaps untold itself.
Don't you mean Etrian Odyssey V will remain in development?

The characters look less terrible than EOU1's cast. I might actually give Story a shot instead of going straight for Classic like I did there between that and the reused character portraits for Classic classes in EO2.

Also the "D" and "X" on the teaser site are unrelated to EOU2. They're each probably different games. Etrian Odyssey X 7th Dragon, maybe? Sega does own both now.

Eh, Millennium Girl's cast wasn't bad. I didn't like Arthur, Raquna, or Smokelung Holmes, and Highlander was just a piece of furniture the party dragged with them, but I liked the characters otherwise. Especially Frederica, who I really liked for whatever reason.
