Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl includes remake of original Etrian Odyssey as “Classic Mode”

Plus, details on the new Guild House and Grimoires.

Famitsu this week has new details on Etrian Oyssey: Millennium Girl.

A 3DS remake of the original Etrian Odyssey will be included within the game as a “Classic Mode” option. In this mode, players can freely create their own character. But save data is shared, which might mean you can’t play Classic mode on a save file separate from Story Mode.

A “Guild House” has been added. This is a new facility managed by the kind guild keeper Rose (voiced by Ai Kayano) and dignified keeper Austin (voiced by Satoshi Tsuruoka). There, players can create Grimoires, a new stone equipment containing skills from different occupations, take requests from the keepers, and store items.

During battle, “Grimoire Chances” will appear at specific rates, allowing you to acquire new Grimoires, including enemy skills. There are over 200 types of Grimoires to obtain.

Background music in Millennium Girl will have both live and FM settings.

Difficulty levels in the RPG include: picnic, standard, and expert levels. You can change the difficulty at any point during the game. Picnic has easier battles and an option to retry failed battles.

Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl is due out for 3DS on June 27 in Japan.
