Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl

 A remake of the original Etrian Odyssey, with several new features added - 3D models for monsters, multiple options for difficulty, some features to streamline the action (like fast-traveling through completed floors), some new enemy types, faster animations and combat, and most substantially, a new alternate story mode with new areas to explore, quite a bit of voice acting and several pre-defined characters and new story scenes, as well as two new classes exclusive to that mode (Highlander and Gunner).  Basically, the original EO with some significant upgrades and new content added.  The only real hangup is that there's only one save slot available, so you can't keep a separate save for the Classic mode and for the Story mode - you have to delete your progress in one to start the other.  That aside, it's classic dungeon crawling action with modern accomodations to trim down on the tedious aspects of its '80s bretheren; if that sounds good to you, Etrian Odyssey Untold is worthy of your time.
