Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is a re-imagining of the very first Etrian Odyssey. The difference this time around is that it comes packed with two modes: Story Mode and Classic Mode. An all-new narrative has been woven, complete with voice-acting, anime cutscenes and pre-set characters for this remake.
Dragon's Crown is the newest offering from Vanillaware and Atlus. It is a game that seeks to combine the multiplayer action of old-school, sidescrolling arcade beat 'em ups with role-playing mechanics in order to create a fast-paced, but deep experience. Does it succeed in its quest? Or should we just leave this would-be treasure as we found it?
Shin Megami Tensei IV puts you in control of a young man from the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado. This Medieval kingdom holds a ritual to determine which of its youth are able to become Samurai, sworn protectors of the land. The ritual consists of putting what looks like a futuristic sci-fi gauntlet on your hand and touching an LCD screen to see if it responds. Sure enough, our unsuspecting farm boy of a protagonist gets chosen and his life as a Samurai begins.
If you are jonesing for the old school days of incredibly hard beat em ups, then Vanillaware has a surprise for you. Dragon’s Crown, the game well known for its characters with gigantic muscles and breasts, actually has gameplay, and good gameplay at that. So stop ogling the sorceress long enough to hear our impressions of the title from E3 2013.
Time to sharpen your sword and get ready for action.
