Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth Announced for 3DS, Teases Return of Female Protagonist From P3P

Coming to Japan in November

Atlus revealed Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth on YouTube, announcing the game with a new trailer that shows off characters from Persona 5, Persona 4, and Persona 3-including the return of the female protagonist from Persona 3 Portable. Persona Q2 is coming out in Japan on November 29 for the Nintendo 3DS.

During this week's episode of the Persona 5 anime, Atlus surprise dropped the trailer for Persona Q2. The first Persona Q, subtitled Shadow of the Labyrinth, was a dungeon-crawler RPG like the Etrian Odyssey titles. The Persona Q2 didn't show off any gameplay but introduced a new character and seems to revolve around a cinema-theme.

The fun thing about these Persona spinoffs is that officially they are all canon. So that means this is the first time we've seen the Persona 3 Portable female protagonist in a canon game since the PSP port of Persona 3 first came out back in 2006.

No word yet on a North American release date but considering that the Persona 3 and Persona 5 dancing games are getting a worldwide release, we should hear something soon. You can check out our Persona 5 guide for more info on Atlus' most recent JRPG.
