Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming character introduction videos for Persona 3's Shinjirō Aragaki and Persona 4's Yukiko Amagi for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game on Friday:
Shinjirō: This is some bad atmosphere...
Shinjirō: Geez... This isn't the time to be screwing around.
Shinjirō: There's only one reason that we fight... For now, at least.
Shinjirō: Stop playing around... I don't want to have to use more energy than I have to.
Shinjirō: Geez... It's obvious you're overdoing it. Here, put out your hand.
Shinjirō: If we don't trust each other, then we're just a bunch of odds-and-ends.
Shinjirō: Kirijou. Aki. And me, too, actually... Have we tried to understand our underclassmen?
Shinjirō: I don't really know what's going on, but it looks like we have to do it!
Shinjirō: Let's do this. This is the final blow! Come on, Castor!
Shinjirō: I knew... But pretended not to. It turns out I was just running away. I'm so petty.
Yukiko: Is this... Inside of the TV? No... It's not.
Yukiko: I see. This kind of place is scary, isn't it?
Yukiko: Zen and Ren, right? It's all right... We won't leave you.
Yukiko: I'm doing my best to protect the peace of our own town... But I had never thought about the world or humanity...
Yukiko: People have lots of different faces. Everyone has parts of themselves they don't want to look at or acknowledge.
Yukiko: Is it impossible for us to understand each other?
Yukiko: It's all right. I'll protect you.
Yukiko: Leave this to me! Let it be burned into your eyes! Konohana Sakuya!
Yukiko: I didn't come here because of some conspiracy or anything. I'm happy I was able to come here! After all, my number of friends has increased so much!
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.
