The story mode is only half of the game, as Classic mode will allow players to play in the traditional Etrian fashion – by putting a party together from 13 unique classes and then clawing through dungeons to prove your mettle. Introduced in the first Untold game, both Classic and Story modes allow players to choose their own difficulty, from Picnic to Expert.
The choice of whether to start with Story or Classic mode will be up to you, when Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight launches on August 4!
A short while into your adventures in EO2U (in either Story or Classic mode), you’ll be asked to help out Regina in the finest cafe in all of High Lagaard! The legendary cook Apicius left his books of recipes in the labyrinth, and Regina wants your help in finding them and preparing them! Unfortunately, he wasn’t exactly thorough in his note-taking, so it will be up to you to decipher what ingredients are needed for his incredible dishes, such as owl cartilage karaage or stir-fried roller. Once you figure them out, you can order the dish for your party, which provides valuable buffs in the labyrinth.
