posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Atlus announced Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth, the newest role-playing game in its Persona video game series, during its live-streamed "Tokuhō! Persona Channel" (Teaser! Persona Channel) special on Sunday. The game assembles the protagonists of both the Persona 3 and Persona 4 video games. It will ship for the Nintendo 3DS portable system on June 5.
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. They 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.
