The February 2015 issue of Kodansha's Shonen Sirius magazine is announcing on Friday that Atlus' Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Nintendo 3DS game is inspiring two new manga series next year.
Sō Tobita will pen the Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - Side:P3 manga in the March issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, which is scheduled to be released on February 9. The Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - Side:P4 manga (seen right) will be penned by Mizunomoto. The former will focus on the protagonist from Persona 3, while the latter will feature the Persona 4 protagonist as the lead.
The story of the original 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.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth shipped in Japan for Nintendo 3DS on June 5, and November 25 in North America.
