Showtime Premium Edition includes Koromaru plush, playing cards, and more.
Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth is headed to the United States and Europe on June 4, 2019.
The crossover game, which includes the full casts of Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 along with the female protagonist of Persona 3 Portable, will be released exclusively on Nintendo 3DS for $39.99.
Persona Q2 focuses on Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves, who have been trapped inside of movie-themed dungeons and have to find their way out. According to Atlus, each dungeon will be themed around its own movie genre, featuring parodies of classic films and genre tropes.
In addition to encountering the casts of Persona 3 and Persona 4 along the way, the Phantom Thieves will also meet brand new characters including a “mysterious girl” named Hikari. Persona Q2 will also include a new Unison battle system that adds bonuses for certain team-ups after completing side quests. Persona Q2 will feature a Japanese voice track with English subtitles and UI heavily inspired by Persona 5.
Alongside Persona Q2, Atlus will also release a special Showtime Premium Edition for $69.99, which includes:
- 5” Koromaru plush toy
- Art book
- Four buttons (one for each protagonist)
- Playing cards featuring characters from each game
Even without the Showtime Premium Edition, anyone who preorders a physical copy of Persona Q2 will get a launch edition, which includes the same set of four protagonist buttons.
Persona Q2 was first teased back in 2017 and eventually released in Japan last year. It’s a sequel to 2014’s Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, which was also released on Nintendo 3DS and featured the casts of Persona 3 and Persona 4 along with new original characters.
Much like Atlus’ Etrian Odyssey series, Persona Q features first-person dungeon exploration on the top screen as players draw their own map on the bottom screen. Battles are turn-based and players can pick party members from any of the Persona games and can also choose between the navigator from each team.
