Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is the latest Persona game by Atlus exclusive to Nintendo 3DS, and a spin-off to the main Persona series. Persona Q is a dungeon crawler akin to Etrian Odyssey , another game series from Atlus and features characters from both Persona 3 and 4 , who are joined by two new characters tasked with defeating shadows.
Atlus said this about the game:
Legend has it that listening to the end of the bell chimes of the Yasogami High School’s clock tower causes people to die, and this time the bell tolls for the Investigation Team and the SEES.
Trapped in an otherworld filled with Shadows, the protagonists from Persona 3 and Persona 4 each have different events to follow, allowing the player to choose and experience a different plotline. 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.
Persona Q was released in Japan on June 5th 2014 and a North American release has been announced at E3 for this autumn, along with an English language trailer. While there is no news of a European release so far we’re confident there’ll be some information available soon.
