Atlus unveils new story details and screenshots for Nintendo 3DS spin-off
Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth is all kinds of adorable. Astride the cast of familiar names are a pair of new faces, amnesiacs (because of course they have amnesia) named Zen and Rei, the latter of which frequently conjures corndogs and donuts from thin air.
If that seems at all outlandish, just remember that this all takes place in a world where school children can summon demons with pistols. Ensorcelled morsels are pretty much just the par for an already bizarre course. And really, growing teens gotta eat. Dungeon crawling really builds up an appetite.
Beyond the tasty treats, the story takes place in an alternate realm resembling Yasogami High, the school from Persona 4, where the Investigation Team encounters the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad of Persona 3. Brought together by a mysterious clock tower, the groups join forces with a memory-devoid duo to escape the labyrinthine school.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is slated to release on June 5, 2014 in Japan for Nintendo 3DS. In the meantime, take a peek at the game's first round of screenshots. There's a lot of them.
