Coming from Square Enix...
“Our press release contained the official statement that had been originally planned, and there is no reason to believe any changes were made mid-way to the content of the official announcement. The comment made during the event was not based on the official statement, so please allow us to correct our statement at this moment. We regret any confusion this may have caused.”
Square-Enix is considering both releases, but not officially confirming them. Sounds like they're trying to say the wording during the press conference was incorrect. I still think there's more going on here than Square-Enix wants us to believe, but take their statement at face value for now.
This information on GameStop's upcoming amiibo event and 3-pack sale is getting a bit out of hand. We haven't heard anything official from GameStop yet, which makes me just a tad nervous. Instead of bombarding you with yet another breakdown of info, some of which contradicts what we've already reported, I figured I'd just provide you with the link. Read on at your own risk!
It's finally here! Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold is now available in retail stores and digitally on the Nintendo eShop! For those who choose to dive in this week, today also marks the beginning of the free DLC period for most of the first batch of DLC -- we have several weeks of DLC rolling out, so stay tuned, but details of the first batch are here:
Aug. 4 DLC Batch
Yggdrasil Veteran: While there will be new portraits for each class in EO2U, the classic portraits from the original Etrian Odyssey will return as FreeLC for veterans that want to give their party a retro look.
Free Until Aug. 10
Highlander's Return: The Protagonist's class from EOU makes a triumphant return in EO2U! This class focuses on sacrificing portions of their health to obliterate enemies and buff party members. Highlander Grimoire stones and the class is available in Story mode as well! (99 cents/CA$1.49 after Aug. 10.)
Hidden Hot Springs!: There's rumors of a secret hot spring inside the snow-covered 3rd Stratum! Can you find the hot springs and dig them up? As an added bonus, completing the quest in Story Mode will unlock special portraits for Arianna and Chloe! ($2.49/CA$3.49 after Aug. 10.)
Wanted: Golden Sprout: An easy quest to find the Golden Sprout, which gives players a lot of En when they turn the quest in. Plus, Regina at the cafe can turn this into a dish that raises the party's chances of getting premium Grimoire stones. ($1.99/CA$2.49.)
