It's a good day when I can just sit and write several articles about Persona. The last bit of the lengthy interview with Katsura Hashino, following talk on Persona 5, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, and Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, centered on the chibi P3/P4 mash up Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

After starting on collaborative works Dancing All Night and Persona 4 Arena with outside developers, the team thought "doing one within the company itself would be neat in a sort of oblique way," Hashino explains. "We'd like to hope that by bringing Persona and Etrian Odyssey together, the ensuing chemistry between the two series will result in something that fans find to be really immersive." A fitting union to celebrate Atlus' 25th anniversary. 

Hashino also said that, "if you play both the Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters' respective stories to completion, it'll be like playing two whole RPGs altogether." Sounds hefty as heck. I'm sure Dale will be up for it.

And here’s the complete and final version of the interview [Pepsiman Tumblr]

Go on, take a peek at Persona Q's battle system

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and it's autumn release are still a ways off, which means there's still plenty of time to do things like watch gameplay trailers. And as luck would have it, Atlus has shared some  tantalizing footage of the dungeon crawler's old-school battle system. Just a few more months...more

Persona Q: Watch Koromaru summon his own Persona

Two new Persona Q trailers have been released by Atlus Japan today. They feature characters Kanji and Koromaru. In the latter you'll see the handsome little red eyed Shiba battle and even summon his own persona. He's so cute. Barooooo! The Kanji trailer is good, but it's not nearly as cute. You'll find his below. [Thanks to pepsimangb for the subtitles]more

Japan gets a limited-edition Persona Q 3DS XL

I almost bought a Japanese 3DS last week while in Kyoto for BitSummit. That pretty mint/white one. But now that I've seen the design of the limited-edition Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, I'm glad I waited. To be honest, ...more

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth coming Fall 2014

I screamed. I screamed loudly. It's not like we didn't know that 3DS RPG Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth was coming eventually. But to finally know that it's in the works and will be in stores this Fall is exciting. Thril...more

Tres bien! Atlus announces Persona Q 3DS bundle

And doesn't have a picture to show for it. Damn. I need to see this design. Atlus has confirmed a 3DS XL bundle (for Japan) for when Persona Q drops on June 5 (in Japan). In a typically nice Atlus move, first print copies of ...more

Stupei gets slapped in his Persona Q video

While we were beary excited to bring you Teddie and Aigis' Persona Q trailers last week, we totally whiffed on Junpei and Yukari. We've got to show Persona 3 some love. I'm more excited for both of their entrances into Persona 4 Arena, but seeing Junpei get slapped and Yukari's cute little cherub bow (below) is nice.more

Beary cool: Teddie & Aigis get their Persona Q trailers

Is Aigis not doing the stilted robotic voice because of where Persona Q falls in the timeline, or did the Japanese voice actor never do it? Because that was a bothersome element to Aigis' character for me. Not as annoying as...more

Tres bien! Mitsuru leads this new Persona Q trailer

I'm still not convinced I like the 3DS chibi Persona 3 and Persona 4 spin-off, Persona Q. Giving me more Mitsuru-senpai is a good way to convince me, though. It seems like all the characters will be getting videos as Atlus's YouTube drowns us in Persona Q videos. I could think of worse things to drown in. Like fire. Or pizza rolls. Or syrup. Most things, really.  more

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more
