posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming character introduction videos for Persona 3's Mitsuru Kirijō and Persona 4's Yōsuke Hanamura for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labrynth Nintendo 3DS game on Friday:
Mitsuru: This is... The sound of a bell?
Yukari: Who...!? What...!? ...It's all blue in here!!
Mitsuru: ...What is this place...?
Mitsuru: My name is Mitsuru Kirijō. We are students of Gekkokan Acadmy, and Persona-users that aim to destroy Shadows.
Mitsuru: You all... Do not appear to know what the Dark Hour is.
Mitsuru: The reason I received my Persona was because it was my duty.
Mitsuru: All right then... It's time for execution. Choose: Become a doormat, or be hung up frozen in ice.
Mitsuru: STAY AWAY!
Mitsuru: Now! It's time to attack! It's time for execution! Penthesilea!
Mitsuru: Somewhere along the way... It increased... The number of things I want to protect.
Yōsuke: It kind of sounded... Like a bell.
Yōsuke: Wh-What's going on!?
Yōsuke: I faced my Shadow, and accepted my weak self... That's how I got my Persona.
Yōsuke: I don't think there's anyone who can immediately accept the self they've tried to keep hidden away and pretend not to see.
Yōsuke: Because I... Lost someone important to me. That's why I think I want to live the amount she couldn't.
Yōsuke: How do I put this... I'll do my best to be someone who can hold their head high in front of those guys. Let's go, partner!
Yōsuke: Let's give it a try! Rain of blades! Go! Jiraiya!
Yōsuke: I think my friends will pull me ahead with them. That's why I want to be someone who can pull them along, too.
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.
The game will ship in Japan on June 5, 2014.
