Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Among the many Persona-related announcements today, Atlus has announced the release date for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, an Etrian Odyssey-style game for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is slated for release in the Fall of this year in Western regions. Plus Atlus has released a new trailer for the title, which you can check out below.

You got Persona in my Etrian! You got Etrian in my Persona! Well, you’re right on both counts. Persona Q is a cross-over for the Nintendo 3DS™ system that brings Persona 3 and 4 characters to the gameplay style of Etrian Odyssey. It also marks the first time the Persona franchise will be available on a Nintendo system.

Characters from Persona 3 and 4 have been given a complete visual overhaul to match the Etrian style and plunged into an alternate world resembling Yasogami High School. Legend has it that listening to the end of the bell chimes of Yasogami High’s clock tower causes people to die, and this time the bell tolls for the Investigation Team and the SEES. Trapped in an other-world filled with Shadows, the protagonists from Persona 3 and Persona 4 each have different events to follow, allowing the player to choose and experience two different plotlines. As both groups seek a way out of the labyrinth, they will run in to two new characters, Rei and Zen, who may hold the secret to this new mystery.

    wait… did they say in the west!?!? Millenium Girl was amazing, and this game plays like it as well. I have been toying around with the idea of getting Shin Megami Tensei IV, jealous of my Vita-toting brother knee-deep in Persona 4:the Golden… if it’s coming out to the US, I may wait for this.

      SMT IV’s tone is quite different from Persona series’ tone, though. 😀 Also, there is no guarantee that this game won’t have any spoilers for Persona 4. :/ Just a friendly warning.
