Meet the Fafnir Knight

Fafnir KnightAtlus loves to show off the characters from their games.  Each one basically gets their own press release and trailer.  We saw a lot leading up to the release of Etrian Mystery Dungeon.  Next on the horizon is Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold.  Playing the new story mode will give you access to the Fafnir Knight.  According to the press release:

When you start down the path of Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold’s Story mode (as opposed to Classic mode!), you take charge as the game’s protagonist — a sworn bodyguard of Princess Arianna! One of the first places you head to is called Ginnungagap, which naturally should be devoid of any monsters or anything else dangerous. Right? Right.

Oh wait no, this is an Etrian Odyssey game. Peril will come at you from around every corner, and that’s without taking into consideration the ever-present threat of FOEs ruining your day. Fortunately, not only is the protagonist a skilled bodyguard, but he also can harness the power of the Fafnir and can transform into a beastly demonic form to access new abilities in the heat of battle.
Of course, how he got this power and what it means is an entirely different story altogether; the only way to find out about it is to play through EO2U’s Story mode!
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight releases sometime this Summer for the Nintendo 3DS.  Here’s a trailer showing the knight in action.
