Atlus gives free trial DLC for Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold to hardcore fans
Rejoice, American fans of Etrian Odyssey! Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight (3DS) has just been released in the States a mere month after the Japanese release. Not only that, but every Tuesday this month, the good people at Atlus will be periodically releasing free trial DLC.
Included in the additional content are the triumphant return of the Highlander class from the first Etrian Odyssey Untold, a giant chicken boss (because why not?), and a hot spring area with unlockable nude portraits for the female characters (because JRPG).
In order to give their fans a taste test of the twelve DLC extras available, half the total downloadable quests and bosses will be free for a week, starting with free trials for "Highlander Returns" and "Hidden Hot Springs!" available until August 10. As a tribute to the original Etrian Odyssey 2, retro character portraits will be available as a permanent “FreeLC” for all players.
More will be released each week, here's the schedule:
This is a big step for Atlus. While Etrian Mystery Dungeon had a similar release with trial DLC, this is the first of the main Etrian Odyssey series to implement DLC content.
The trial DLC period is tailored to reward the most hardcore of fans, gamers who will put in the Herculean time and effort required to get to all the downloadable bosses and quests in the seven days they are available.
To complete all the trial DLC without paying anything, one would have to get all their characters to level 99 and defeat The Original Sin, a god tier boss, by August 31st. Keep an eye out for videos of said boss at the beginning of September.
No doubt, many will make the attempt.
