Madhouse, the animation studio behind Paprika and Tokyo Godfathers, is making an animated opening movie for New Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl. Atlus focused on storytelling for their reimaging of the Nintendo DS dungeon crawler.


Using Yuji Himukai’s art as a base, Madhouse brought the Yggdrasil Labyrinth to life. Check out these screen captures from the game’s animated opening.

    Probably the only thing that has me interested in this. I don’t like rpgs like this.

  • Testsubject909

    Ooooh. Spiffy… Shame there isn’t an actual video to look at, but the screenshots looks nice.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    It looks nice but if the disc doesn’t explode and knocks you out over and over again then it’s not Etrian Odyssey.

      How did you fit a disk in your DS?

  • DanteJones

    Absolutely love the art style of these games. The more I hear about this one in particular the more I want it. :(

    • I agree. Each new piece of news increases my interest and anticipation for the release of this game.

    Can’t wait to see it…hopefully it has the same feeling like the other openings of the games (in other words…Yuzo doing the opening song. With or without vocals, either way if fine

    I wish they would use these kinds of concept arts in the pre-order booklets.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Sorry if I missed it, but I’ve been wondering why you guys started calling it Millennium Girl again and not Maiden? I checked through the previous articles and didn’t see anything to the change.

    Oooh, nice quality. Looking forward to seeing it.

    Oooh, Racoona in casual summer clothes. Looking forward to summer.

    The Older Male Protector looks quite badass with that cloak. He was my Protector in EO1, so that’s pretty awesome.

    Although it’s a little surprising to not see much art of the Female (blonde) Protector since she was practically the mascot of EO1 the first go round.
