A new trailer has been released for Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Maiden, which stars Simon, the party’s Medic, as he demonstrates why using healing skills in battle is imperative for survival. Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Maiden is coming out for Japan on June 27th for the 3DS.

In the video, Simon shows what happens when you let status ailments (Poison in this instance) run amok. Using healing skills, however, can cure a wide variety of issues such as negative statuses, low health and even death, which increases the survivability of the party during enemy encounters.

It’s good to see that Millennium Maiden will continue to heavily require strategy in the random encounters–such difficulty is both rare in most JRPGs and very refreshing.
