Like all Etrian Odyssey games, Untold sees players navigating a series of labyrinthine structures from a first-person perspective while battling fiends in turn-based fashion. Mechanically it's a very classic, arguably dated take on the roleplaying genre, but these archaic elements are countered by modern aesthetics, sound and the convenience of being able to map your surroundings directly on the 3DS touchscreen. Danny's review of the North American release awarded the game 4 of 5 stars, alternately describing Etrian Odyssey Untold as "an enjoyable nostalgia trip for Etrian Odyssey veterans" and "the best entry point in the series."
Publisher NIS America Europe has yet to reveal a price point for the European release of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl.

dialogue, and plenty of challenges for fans of first-person, dungeon-crawling RPGs. A demo, which
includes two dungeons, will be available in Nintendo eShop prior to the game's release for those
fans who want to get a nice sneak peek of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl!
