Press Release:


 

Irvine, Calif. — Nov. 25, 2014 — The shadows have amassed, the Velvet Room is open once more and the fate of the world is at stake once again as Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is now available in North America. Exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS™ handheld entertainment system, Persona Q marks the first time ATLUS’ renowned Persona franchise will be available on a Nintendo console. Persona Q is now available in stores or digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS for $49.99. Persona Q is also available as “The Wild Cards” Premium Edition for $79.99, but supplies are extremely limited.

In Persona Q, 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. The protagonists from Persona 3 and Persona 4 get trapped in a school festival, where the themed classrooms are actually sprawling dungeons teeming with monsters. 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.

Gameplay features:

Engaging Characters and Story – Revisit the beloved cast from Persona 3 and Persona 4 to learn more about them and their social relationships with each other. Then engage in a brand new story with the new characters Zen and Rei.
More than 80 hours of brand new Persona story to explore – A new, standalone story awaits the protagonists from Persona 3 and Persona 4. Each side of the story will have different dialogue choices and reveal new aspects about the circumstances surrounding the cultural festival.
Familiar Persona Combat….in a brand new format – Persona Q is a true hybrid. Dungeon crawling will be done in the five-member party, first-person Etrian style gameplay, but characters will be able to equip Personas, powerful beings that unlock magic abilities, to create a wide variety of combat style.
Fully Voiced Story Dialogue – The game features fully voiced English audio, with thousands of lines of dialogue.
