Atlus’s teaser has finally counted down and we have been treated to several announcements.
The first is of the new Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth for the Nintendo 3DS. Featuring adorable, deformed chibi characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4, the new spinoff title is a dungeon crawler a la Etrian Odyssey (also developed by Atlus).
The game will release next year on June 5th in Japan.
We will update the story once more new information becomes available.
[Update: Unlike Persona 4 Arena this game is actually a spinoff and should be considered non-canon, though I assume many of you have already come to that conclusion. Additionally, the game seems to actually run on the same engine as Etrian Odyssey so there’s that. Also added is the trailer shown off this morning.]
