If you’ve read my last two posts, you know damn well I’m obsessed with Persona Q right now. The battle system, the labyrinthine dungeon crawling, the map drawing, persona fusions; a lot of which come from the Etrain Odyssey side of the mash-up.
I’ve put off Etrain Odyssey since.. well, since forever. Until today.
Etrain Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl for 3DS is on sale until the 30th of this month for a mere $10. So what the hell. I’ll give it a shot.
Apparently (according to my expert Wikipedia skills) Millennium Girl is both a reimagining and remake of the original game, adding an all new Story mode with set characters. It still includes the Classic mode, where you can make your own characters, but I don’t think I’d be interested in that. I need a story to drag me along, no matter how cliche.
I hear the series is punishingly difficult, so I’ll probably start out on the Picnic setting (similar to Safety in Persona 2, I guess?) until I get my feet wet.
Anyone out there familiar with the game? Thoughts? Advice to not get slaughtered?
