Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming character introduction videos for Persona 3's Akihiko Sanada and Persona 4's Chie Satonaka for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game on Friday:
Akihiko: The bell again, huh? Heh... I'm excited now!
Akihiko: You guys are stronger than you look.
Akihiko: After this fight is over, I might go on a journey to search for someone stronger than I am.
Akihiko: Which means it's a challenge, Shinji!
Akihiko: Don't get in the way of a man's serious battle!
Mitsuru: Would you two buddies like to be turned to ice in this size?
Akihiko: You have pretty good guts. All right, let me give you something good.
Akihiko: It's a protein bar! Try eating it!
Akihiko: If our labyrinth wandering goes wrong, "it" will appear to get in our way...
Akihiko: Hold on to that. It's a good luck charm.
Akihiko: That's not what living is. It's not the "phenomenon" of your heart beating.
Akihiko: This is our chance! I'll end it now! Let's go! Polydeuces!
Akihiko: I want to think about the large number of people around me. My life isn't alone. It's not alone.
Chie: The clocktower... Wait... From the seven mysteries!?
Chie: There's seriously... Seriously a clocktower!
Chie: OK, this conversation is over. Let's go, let's go.
Chie: I-I-I'm not really scared at awwl!? Th-This is a piece of c-c-cakey...
Chie: This is awesome! Our allies increased by so many at once!
Chie: Who am I...? Um, I'm Chie... Satonaka.
Chie: Wait- Oh come on, don't say that...
Chie: You're going to get hurt if you underestimate me because I'm a girl!
Chie: Just wait... I'll save you now!
Chie: Let's take this down in one shot! Wachoooh! Tomoe!
Chie: My feeling of wanting to protect everyone won't change, but... I think I want to believe more that my friends will save me, 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. 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.
