Video: Check Out These Etrian Odyssey: Millenium Girl Story Sequences

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Some gorgeous animation to enjoy

Earlier this week we reported that Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl (or Millennium Maiden) will have cutscenes produced by the highly respected anime studio Madhouse, which is terrific news for the potential standard of the story-telling segments.

Millennium Girl, arriving in Japan on 27th June, reimagines the series debut on DS, but with an alternative approach that is reportedly focused on storytelling and character development. With the series' history of making it to the West, meanwhile, we can perhaps be optimistic that it'll eventually come across to North America and Europe.

As the Japanese release creeps closer, meanwhile, we can expect to see more footage and information in the coming weeks. A recent enticing addition from Atlus is this new trailer (over three minutes long) that shows off plenty of the Madhouse-produced story sequences. They look rather attractive, as we'd expect.

Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Glad to see the game is getting a whole 3D make over, wonder if they'll balance out difficulty a bit too. Oh boy I can't wait for this.

I was a little hesitant about an Etrian Odyssey that doesn't let you create your own party, but this game looks fantastic. The cutscenes are gorgeous, and the party members all look good.

This might be a good way to expand EO's audience. Hopefully they'll continue doing this more story driven style as a spin off.

EDIT: Upon further inspection I found out you can play this in CLASSIC mode; which basically let's you play it like a traditional Wizardry style blobber. AWESOME.

This is a remake (sort of) of the original right? I was thinking of picking up the first one, but should I just wait and get this when it's released instead?

@BennyFresh Yes wait trust me. I've played the whole series and I liked it back then but the original is hard to play now after all the sequels refined the gameplay.

Really enjoyed IV quite a bit, I'll be looking forward to playing this when it comes to the U.S. in 2-5 years.

@ajcismo as fast as Atlus has been working lately I give it just over a year before its released here. After SMT IV there really isn't anything for a long while on the horizon.

Seems pretty soon though. EO4 came out this year. Granted it is a remake but that is still very soon.
