Nintendo 3DS game shipping on June 5 unites Persona 3, 4 characters

Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming character introduction videos for Elizabeth and her sister Margaret for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game on Saturday. Elizabeth originally came from Persona 3, while Margaret came from Persona 4.

    Elizabeth: Hm? Just what is this, I wonder?
    Elizabeth: The Velvet Room is a place where nothing meaningless occurs. That same Velvet Room invited you all to come here. In other words, you all have something that you must do. As residents of the Velvet Room, we shall assist you.
    Elizabeth: I have waited for this time to come.
    Elizabeth: There is a storm that will even make fate and "time" sway.
    Elizabeth: Culture festival... That is the festival of excitement and confusion that is held by students once a year...!
    Elizabeth: Takoyaki... Everyone! Come, come!
    Elizabeth: Elizabeth, going now!
    Elizabeth: Everything that begins must end. It makes me want to see where the end of your journey will bring you.

    Margaret: Something is happening... No... It's trying to begin... The cards are whispering that a strange incident is waiting for you.
    Margaret: Obeying fate, you wandered into a land between the cracks... As did I.
    Margaret: If this is true, I have a destiny to assist you all...
    Margaret: I shall look forward to also viewing the story that was woven by the threads of fate.
    Margaret: I have interest as to what is inside this "takoyaki"...
    Margaret: W-Wo~w, these sweets are sooooo cute!
    Margaret: I'm happy to have met you again after so long.
    Margaret: I'm not worried... After all, it's you we're talking about. I'll be waiting for that time to come.

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 and this fall in North America.
