"There is a legend of a floating castle ..." the new trailer for Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard begins. It may as well have gone on to say "The legend holds that the floating castle is a big dungeon in which thousands of adventurers will get lost and/or killed several times!" Sure, it's not the most poetic telling of the legend, but it has the benefit of accuracy.
Etrian Odyssey II is shaping up to be exactly what it should: the same exact game, with new dungeons, monsters, and classes. Etrian isn't really the kind of game that needs flashy new graphics or features, being a refinement of a very old genre. It just needs to be brutally difficult.
