Atlus USA has announced that they will be bringing Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight to North America this Summer for Nintendo 3DS. It will be available at retail and on the eShop for $49.99.
Much like the first Etrian Odyssey Untold, the game includes voice acting and animated cutscenes alongside a new story mode, where a group of five uncover the secrets of the Fafnir Knight. Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 also brings in new dungeon layouts, new graphics, and system improvements from its predecessor. You can find the press release and announcement media below.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Features:
Creatures of Comfort: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold is the seventh entry in the Etrian franchise (eighth if you count Persona Q, and you know we do) and has a level of refinement that could only come from consumer feedback. Improved systems and mapping make Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold one of the most approachable Etrian titles to date.
Untold Classics: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold has two ways to play the game, continuing the tradition of the Untold franchise. Classic mode revisits the original Etrian Odyssey 2 with updated graphics, player conveniences, and a full roster of classes. Story mode features a fixed party, but includes voiced dialogue, animated cutscenes and a bittersweet arc that explores the relationship between Arianna and the Fafnir Knight.
What the Fafnir? The titular knight is the Fafnir class and is a never-before-seen addition to the Etrian franchise. He has the ability to transform into a beastly demonic form, which enhances his attributes and abilities, and is only available in the Story mode.
Bring a Blanket: Just as in Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl and Persona Q, in addition to normal difficulty, players can choose Picnic mode for a low-difficulty experience or the masochi... er, veterans amongst them can choose Expert mode for a punishing play-through.
