Persona Q 3DS Game's Opening Video Streamed
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Japanese video game publisher Atlus began streaming the opening cinematic for its upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game on Wednesday.
Atlus is also streaming a tutorial video for the "Handmade Workshop," which allows players to create new weapons, armor, accessories, and more using ingredients they find in the labyrinth:
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.
