Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth Gets Western Release Date, Premium Edition

A Western release date for Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth has been confirmed, and a premium edition has been detailed.persona-q2

The 3DS exclusive will launch on June 4th 2019 at the price of $39.99, with the premium edition (detailed here) costing $69.99.

This game acts as a sequel to 2014’s Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, and focuses on characters from Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5. Q2 will feature the same mechanics as Q, with movie-themed dungeons themed around specific genres and parodying classic films.

As someone whose introduction to Persona was through Persona 5 and has never played Persona 3 or 4, this gives me an opportunity to get to know the characters from those 2 games without having to purchase an older system to play the original games. This announcement certainly gave my morning a bit more excitement and I look forward to diving into the game in June.

  1. I also haven’t played Persona 3 or 4, but I also haven’t played 5. would you recommend this and the game it is a sequel to as an intro to the Persona series, or would you say that starting off with 5, which is arguably the most popular, to be the best course of action? Also, do you plan to play Shadow of the Labyrinth in addition to this sequel or do you just want to see how much you like the sequel?

    1. Based on what I’ve seen/heard about the Q games, I think they’re great entry points into Persona. I would personally say 5 is the easiest game to get into, but I absolutely adore that game. As for Shadow of the Labyrinth, I’ll probably just check out Q2 and decide if I want to play Shadow later on.

  2. I’m currently playing Persona Q, and it’s great. I don’t care for the OCs, but the interactions between the cast of 3 & 4 is wonderful (and, the Catherine cameos are a nice touch). I’m a little bummed about the lack of a dub, but I understand the rationale for it (end of 3DS lifespan, etc…), but I’ll have to lookup the banter for in-battle quotes, since I really like the comments in-battle in Persona Q (there’s some especially entertaining comments between Junpei and Yukari in the first game that I like).

    Regardless, I’m getting that special edition simply because I have to have that Koromaru plush.
