Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming character introduction videos for the original characters Zen (voiced by Yuuki Kaji) and Rei (Kaori Nazuka) for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game on Friday:
- Zen: Who are you?
Zen: Rei, you want to get out of here, right? It's all right... I'll protect you.
Rei: Wait, Zen. That hurts.
Zen: Oh... Sorry. I didn't notice.
Zen: Did you insult Rei?
Zen: Rei... Don't ever separate from me.
Zen: People have a lot of different faces... Huh. Even if what you say is true, there's no way I can acknowledge it.
Zen: All of you, pull out. I'll go.
Zen: I won't let this end yet! Take this.
Zen: A mission... That's right... I had... A mission... But... I lost my memories...
Zen: I was searching for something in this world... It was because Rei was crying... But I couldn't find that “something.”
- Rei: So they went in... You know... There are really scary things waiting inside...
Rei: I'm going to leave too... I'm going to go home with everyone.
Rei: Zen, let's leave together. I want to go home, too.
Rei: The moment I was relieved, I got hungry!
Rei: Once we leave here, let's eat okonomiyaki and candy apples and cotton candy and obayaki and curry and chocolate bananas together, OK!?
Rei: Do red threads really connect you to your destined person?
Zen: Do you... Plan to eat the thread?
Rei: No, geez!
Rei: To tell the truth... I was so scared that my legs were shaking... But since I thought that I had to save you, I was able to move ahead, little by little.
Rei: I'll do my best, too, OK!?
Rei: I got my memories... Taken from me.
Rei: I'll be a good girl! Just please, I don't want to be here!
Rei: I'm sorry... It's because... I was selfish... Zen... I'm sorry...
The story of the new game takes place on the last day of the Yasogami High culture festival. During the event, the heroes of Persona 4 see a strange bell tower appear on the school grounds. The heroes of Persona 3 also hear the bell, and are dragged into the future where the Persona 4 cast awaits. The two groups are locked in the school covered in Shadows, but meet two mysterious individuals named Zen and Rei, who have lost their memories. The cast soon learns that Zen and Rei's lost memories may be the key to solving the mystery of the bell tower's sudden appearance.
Although only one of the silent protagonists can lead the party, players will experience a different story depending on the protagonist they choose. By choosing the Persona 4 hero, players will experience a story more closely involved with the Persona 4 cast and vice versa.
The game will ship in Japan on June 5, 2014.
