Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is now getting rather close to its release date of 1st October in North America. With that in mind a demo is set to be released on 16th September, to get 3DS owners warmed up ahead of the full game.

Atlus has also begun the introduction of individual characters, as this entry will re-tell the story of the original Etrian Odyssey with an all-new Story Mode that'll be far more cinematic and driven than the standard approach of the franchise; traditionalists can still play Classic mode, however.

The video and text below introduce Arthur, the "adolescent Alchemist". Check those out and let us know how hyped you are for next week's demo; unfortunately there's no release of this title currently confirmed for PAL regions.

Though Arthur is a prodigy when it comes to alchemy, most of the rest of his past is a fog as the result of a traumatic incident that leveled his hometown. Arthur's never met a problem in the Labyrinth he didn't want to try to solve with fire, though the player also has the option to spec him out with ice or lightning formulas, if they must.

As the prime elemental damage dealer, Arthur is versatile enough to tackle all the enemies vulnerable to Fire, Ice and Volt magic but with the right Grimoire Stones, he has the utility to be more than a glass cannon if players choose.
