Classic Mode (1)

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is set to be quite the content rich package, featuring two parallel game modes that promise to offer roughly the same amount of content. The newest mode, Story Mode, will follow the adventures of the Fafnir Knight and be much more focused on story and feature a fixed party for the duration of the campaign. Classic Mode, on the other hand, will be much more open ended, allowing players to customize characters and parties as they see fit and allowing players to draw their own maps as they explore mazes.

Classic Mode will act as a sort of remake of Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard, featuring revamped dungeon layouts and improved graphics. There will be 13 character classes to choose from, ranging from mainstays such as Alchemists and Landsknechts to fan favourites like Beasts and War Magi. Grimoire Stones, a new feature introduced in Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl, will also allow characters to use other classes' unique skills. Here's a video and some screenshots showcasing it all in action:
