We loved Persona Q, with Mitch Jay raving about it in our review, so we were excited to hear about a sequel in the works. This was raised to fever pitch when Atlus revealed that a Persona Q2 special edition would be coming too.
Atlus revealed that Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth has been confirmed for a western release on June 4th 2019 for both the US and Europe. This 3DS exclusive title will cost $40 at launch, and like its predecessor, it crosses over the casts of various Persona games.
Persona Q2 specifically is a spin-off of the core series featuring the Phantom Thieves of Persona 5. The heroes have to battle their way out of dungeons, each themed after a movie genre with its own set of tropes. They’ll join up with both original characters and notable names from the Persona series along the way. Those will include characters from Persona 3, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4, and Persona 5. Clever team-ups between characters will grant special rewards through a new “Unison” battle system.
Atlus simultaneously revealed the special “Showtime Premium Edition” for $70. That will include a gorgeous Koromaru plush, art book, four buttons featuring the four protagonists, and a deck of playing cards with characters across the Persona series. Pre-orders also include the buttons set.
