Wondering how Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves of Hearts felt after they were transported to the mysterious setting in Persona Q2: New Cinema? Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore as Atlus recently released two short videos showing the first few beginning scenes of the game.
In a short 37-second clip released by Atlus, the Phantom Thieves can be seen dazed and confused after they were abruptly dropped to a strange place. Considering that they are donning their Phantom Thieves outfit, they were most likely transported to the realm while exploring Mementos. Meanwhile, another video shows the team chatting at a cinema, with Futaba feeling scared that there might be ghosts in the area. So, what exactly will the heart-stealing high schoolers do next?
Persona Q2: New Cinema marks the first time the crossover spinoff series will have the Phantom Thieves, including Ann Takamaki, Futaba Sakura, Goro Akechi, Haru Okumura, Morgana, Makoto Nijima, Ryuji Sakamoto, Yusuke Kitagawa and the protagonist. While the main allure arguably involves seeing the chibified cast of characters from Persona 3 to Persona 5 interacting with one another, this spinoff series delivers more than just fan service with its RPG mechanics and dungeon crawler elements in the vein of Etrian Odyssey.
More new trailers and game reveals will likely be released as we get closer to the game’s launch in Japan on Nov. 29, 2018 for the 3DS. Atlus has yet to announce Persona Q2: New Cinema for the West.
