Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth – Side:P3 and Side:P4 Manga Series’ Announced

Just incase you thought the world doesn’t have enough “Persona” media floating around. At the end of last year the crossover RPG title “Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth” was released and the “Persona” fandom went absolutely ballistic. Finally the two most popular instalments of the series have been brought together for one hardcore romp through the fields of fan service. Featuring a whole bunch of awesome characters alongside some interestingly old-school gameplay mechanics, “Persona Q” was a hit! Not that anyone thought it wasn’t going to be. It’s pretty much guaranteed, at this point in time, that if a “Persona” game gets released people are going to like it. Now, much like the rest of the video game series, “Persona Q” will be getting it’s very own Manga series. No, actually, it will be getting TWO new Manga series: One for Persona 3 and one for Persona 4. The assumption is that, although separated, the Mangas will still follow the story of “Q” rather than the individual stories of “Persona 3” and “Persona 4” that …

Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth – Review

For me, there’s no greater video game than a crossover video game. If you sit back and think about it, it’s basically a fan fiction story come to life. I cried when “Marvel VS Capcom 3” got released, “Street Fighter X Tekken” had me naked by the title screen and “Project X Zone” made me wet my pants. Yeah…I love crossover titles THAT MUCH. When I heard about “Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth” I was institutionalised for a period of three weeks but I managed to get myself out of the straight jacket and back at my work desk with enough time to research the characters of “Persona 3” just so I’d be able to enjoy the game a little more. Having only played “Persona 4 Golden” but absolutely loving it, I was very much excited for “Q” but still felt as though I needed to do my homework before jumping in “half prepared”. North America, those lucky bastards, got the game before us here in Australia and an influx of reviews flooded the net. …

Persona Q – It’s Time To Meet The Occupants Of The Velvet Room

ATLUS knows that a lot of us already know the characters of both ‘Persona 3’ and ‘Persona 4’. They’re games based around two things; fighting and making friends, so it’s obvious that once you come into contact with another character, you’re probably going to know them very well by the end of the game. For the sake of those who’ve not played the games and for the sake of those who have terrible memories and need a bit of reminding, ATLUS have released a set of four trailers for their upcoming dungeon crawler, RPG ‘Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth’. These four videos will spotlight the four inhabitants of the Velvet Room. Yes, all four of them! You’ve got Marie, Margaret, Elizabeth and Theodore. The whole team is here to play! Even better than just simply having them around is that they all play quite an important role in the events of the game both story-wise and gameplay-wise. Margaret spends most of her time in the Velvet Room. She can help you and your party …

Persona Q – Naoto Shirogane and Ken Amada Character Trailers Released

ATLUS have today released two more character trailers for their upcoming Nintendo 3DS video game ‘Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth’ and they just so happen to focus on the smallest of the two groups that make up both the ‘Persona 3’ and ‘Persona 4’ cast respectively. Naoto Shirogane, the literal shortest of the ‘P4’ team, is a self-proclaimed ace detective and one hell of a gunfighter. She, together with the Persona Sukuna-Hikona, is a perfect backup brawler that can dance with the best of them and isn’t one to back down prematurely. Though her everyday life is filled with gender confusion and questions that need some serious answering, she wont let that effect her in battle. Ken Amada from ‘P3’, on the other hand, is just a kid so it’s understandable if he doesn’t feel as ‘at home’ on the battlefield as the rest of the cast. That doesn’t mean he wont do his all to protect his friends. With a spear in hand and Nemesis the Persona at his back, this young man …

Persona Q – Shinjiro Aragaki and Yukiko Amagi Character Trailers Released

Both dressed in red; one’s a stone cold beast and the other is a bodacious babe. Isn’t it obvious who I’m referring to? It’s Shinjiro Aragaki from ‘Persona 3’ and Yukiko Amagi from ‘Persona 4’. They’re just two of the many stars of the upcoming ‘Persona’ Nintendo 3DS title ‘Shadow Of The Labyrinth’ and ATLUS thinks it’s about time they get their chance to shine bright with their very own character trailers. Aragaki and his Persona pal Castor are head-to-head brawlers. They take no back seat to the action and are always willing to act as any team’s vanguard duo whereas Miss Amagi and her Persona Konohana Sakuya prefer to take a stand somewhere in the rear guard, using magic to back up their teammates. Both characters will be able to work together brilliantly with one backing up the other as they mow down the enemies that stand before them. Don’t take my word for it though because, who knows, I could be wrong. What you should do is check out the two character trailers …

Both ‘Persona 3’ and ‘Persona 4’ feature a character type that are focused on one thing and one thing only; one of them happens to be a freak for meat and the other surely spends most of his free time at the gym. I think you all know who I’m talking about…it’s Chie Satonaka of ‘Persona 4’ and Akihiko Sanada of ‘Persona 3’! One is a world renowned ‘kick chick’ and the other could definitely give Rocky a run for his money and they’ve both come together today to share the spotlight in their very own character trailers. ‘Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth’ isn’t too far away from being released but that doesn’t matter to ATLUS, they’ll keep …

Persona Q – Yosuke and Mitsuru Character Trailers Released

We all know the drill by now right? ATLUS, the Japanese video game developer and publisher, have a huge audience and they’re not the types to leave their fans wanting more for too long. That’s why almost every single week they release something new regarding their upcoming video game releases. While most publishers do this, none do it as frequently as ATLUS and I think it’s safe to say that’s why we love them.
