A date for the diaries

The Etrian Odyssey series certainly has its share of loyal fans, with the latest entry in the first-person RPG series arriving on the 3DS earlier this year — Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. While that's the latest numbered entry, Atlus will shortly be bringing Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Maiden to 3DS in Japan, which is a new spin on the first game in the series.

We've known for a little while that this title will come to North America as Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl, and Atlus has now confirmed that the game will launch in the region as physical retail and an eShop download on 1st October, priced at $39.99. It'll have all new animations and an optional orchestral soundtrack, but perhaps more importantly adds fresh content and aims to provide a solid starting ground for new players. The Story Mode — a first for the franchise — will provide five preset characters and be driven by its narrative, while veterans can jump into the familiar Classic Mode. Whichever option is taken, this new version of the original will have new dungeons and upgrades to accommodate improvements seen in Legends of the Titan.

So, how many of you in North America are planning to pick this up on 1st October?
