Persona Q2 drops the beat on its psychadelic opening movie


Joker and Co. strut their colourful stuff

Although I'm a fan of anime, I find that, a lot of the time, its animation is inconsistent, usually lacking in smooth character movement, occasionally unreliable in terms of anatomy and perspective. Regardless, it can always be relied upon to deliver great colour, exciting camera angles, cinematic lighting and interesting, sometimes dreamlike, shot composition.

Case in point, this opening movie from Atlus' upcoming handheld title Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, which will see heroes from multiple Persona games gather together to fight off innumerable demons on the silver screen. This slick and stylish intro does a great job of capturing the mood and style of the series, splashed in palette of beautiful, warm colours.

Almost everyone gets a look-in, from the series' body of protagonists, to starlets like Mitsuru and Haru, ass-kickers Makoto and Chie, a trio of goofy sidekicks and even nobody's favourite character Goro Akechi. The video makes for a funky couple of minutes, sure to put a spring in your step. I'm convinced it's the best way to start your Monday morning.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, launches in Japan on Nintendo 3DS November 29. I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing it on this side of the globe eventually, though I doubt it will slide into view anytime soon.
