I’m green when it comes to Persona, with my first experience being Persona 4 Arena, and getting heavily into the Persona dancing games before the RPGs, but I did find Persona Q a very fun, if flawed title. So, I’ve been looking forward to Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth since its announcement.
Atlus have now released a story trailer for the game, which we have embedded below, and I have to admit the game is looking pretty good so far. Also, there’s an absolutely stunning special edition, which I seriously could not want more (just look at that Koromaru plush!).
The story of the game follows the Phantom Thieves on another adventure as they find themselves trapped within a series of labyrinthine movies, each with its own unique twists and turns themed after various movie genres. Along the way, you’ll encounter other like-minded heroes who possess the will and strength to help you in your journey. But who is this mysterious girl Hikari, and how will the cast escape from this cinematic entanglement that transcends time and space!?
Key Game Features:
- – Joker Takes Center Stage – Experience a thought-provoking story from the perspective of the protagonist from Persona 5 as you along with the other Phantom Thieves meet the S.E.E.S. from Persona 3 and the Investigation Team from Persona 4 in a cinematic world!
