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