Persona: The Snow Queen Quest’s American Debut!

Atlus’ words not mine. Nevertheless, seeing the Snow Queen quest appear in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona should be exciting for anyone that played Revelations: Persona.


The Snow Queen quest is an alternate storyline, which you can discover early in the game. This side story features a different cast of characters, Yuki being one of them, and *that* Shin Megami Tensei demon. You know, Mara.

  • That trailer doesn’t exactly show much.

    It’s gotta be one of the most underwhelming videos I’ve ever watched.

    Still looking forward to the game, don’t get me wrong.

      All the videos they’ve shown so far are just translated versions of the videos from the Japanese site.

    Uh, I really hope that the same music doesn’t play. Kind of annoying trying to explore and whatnot with loud, techno-ish engrish music. Seems out of place, especially in that scene.

      Really hope that the same music doesn’t play…..? But yes, that is the music that plays when you’re in the school. A good deal of the game’s original soundtrack has been removed and a only a few of the old tracks got remixed. A bit disappointing, but I’d say it’s worth it for a proper localization.

    As big as the uproar was that this wasn’t included in the PS1 Persona, I don’t think many people would actually play it. I guess this version, they are adding more save points and such, but it was just for masochists.

  • So this is also in the Japanese version of the game, but was … never put into the American verison before this?

    …But I thought Persona 1 was never released in the US before this…


    • Hraesvelgr

      They did release Persona 1 in the US, as well as Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (but not Innocent Sin, the first half of the story). While most of the story elements were left alone, the names, locations and appearances were changed to make it seem as though the game took place in America, presumably to increase sales.

      Eternal Punishment was mostly left the same, except for any returning characters, who suddenly were adopted by Japanese families or something. In any case, I believe the Snow Queen Quest was “blocked”, though not entirely removed, from the US release as they wanted to get the game out before Christmas. Yeah, that didn’t work out for them, because the game sold terribly regardless.

      • You’re right. Large chunks of the Snow Queen arc’s data are present on the Revelations: Persona disc, and some people report being able to access it via various cheat devices, but it’s buggy and incomplete on the American disc – basically they just tried to remove enough of it that the only accessible story arc was the main one.
