Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Persona 3 Portable
The final covers have been released for the Premium Edition and Limited Standard Edition of Persona Q. New videos for Persona 3’s Ken Amada and Persona 4’a Naoto were also released and are viewable below. The Persona and Etrian Odyssey hybrid will come as a first-run Limited Standard Edition bundled inside a cardboard box with a pack of tarot cards, the second set of a deck that matches a set released with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and as a Premium Edition, which costs more but also comes with a music CD, 38-page art book, and 3DS XL case.
Those Persona fans who have held out from importing the Persona Q Edition of the 3DS XL are in luck: Atlus has announced a North American release. The $199.99 themed system will only be available at GameStop and sold only as hardware, meaning that there will be no bundle pack that includes the game. The Persona Q 3DS XL will be available in limited quantities but will be up prior to release for pre-order, though no date was given on when it’ll go live for pre-order.
The Persona series will be making its debut on the 3DS this fall with the release of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. The crossover title will feature characters from Persona 3 and 4 in an Etrian Odyssey-style adventure. In an alternate world, the gangs set out to investigate the legend surrounding the deadly bell chimes that eminate from Yasogami High’s clock tower. Both sets of characters play through their own storylines as each tries to find their way out of the now-enemy-filled labyrinth.
“Relabeled SMT: Persona 3 Portable, this new version includes the addition of Skill Cards, part-time jobs, two new difficulty settings for the beginners and experts, and the ability to control teammates during battle.”
