Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth Videos For The Persona 3 And Persona 4 Heroes

By Spencer . February 21, 2014 . 12:35am

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth brings all of the characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 together. Actually, this is the first time the protagonists from Persona 3 and Persona 4 meet. The story starts when a labyrinth appears inside Yasogami High, the school in Persona 4, during the culture festival. The characters from Persona 3 hear a chime from a clock tower from Yasogami High inside Tartarus, the dungeon in Persona 3, and rumor has it those that can hear the chime will die.


Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth comes out on June 6 for Nintendo 3DS.

  • God

    Plot twist: They are already dead.

    • totoro

      That sounds plausible since this isn’t ‘canon’ (the Amala Universe shenanigans).

      • AnotherTime

        According to what I’ve read and understood, this happened while SEES was enduring that bad storm, also, while the Investigation Team was preparing for their culture festival.

      • James

        It’s more likely that they lose their memories ala persona 2 rather then the game just being declared non canon.

    • hng qtr

      First Jojo and now Hokuto no Ken? Now they just need some Saint Seya shout outs.

  • God

    How the fuck do they want me to choose only 5 characters?!

    • DyLaN

      When in doubt, go random or pick by preferences :P

      • God

        I repeat: “How the fuck do they want me to choose only 5 characters?!”

        • natchu96

          You’re God. You figure it out.

          • God

            I gave you free will, how would i know how do they want me to do something?

          • natchu96

            You’re all-knowing. Deal with it.

          • God

            Thats just a common misconception! I stopped being all-knowing the minute i gave sentinence to living beings! (partly beacuse i was too lazy to control so many people all at the same time.)

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      They’ll probably be a lot of forced party choices and story choices.

      • God

        I don’t think so, considering this is a mix between Persona 3/4 (where the MC is he only one you are forced to use) and Etrian Odyssey (where all characters are custom made).

        • katamari damacy

          the Newer Etrain Odysseys have forced pre-made story characters if you go the ‘story’ route.

          • God

            Only 1…

          • Kazekage Gaara

            That was just a remake of the first game.

          • natchu96

            Only one game, and it was a remake of the original for a quick attempt at boosting the fanbase count with something more accessible.

            And the classic mode was left in at that. Not that the story party wasn’t already somewhat OP.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I’m not sure what that has to do with the game however. Yes it uses etrians battle but that doesn’t mean it’ll dictate everything in the game.

          Some character will likely be unavaible at some points because of storie, or forced into the party at somepoints. I’m sure they’ll be free reign as well at times.

          • God

            I can bet 2 universes that you are wrong.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Yeah I’m going to have to bet the whole multiverse that I’m right

    • Slickyslacker

      Yukiko, Teddie, Naoto, Aigis, Mitsuru…

      …I don’t need an MC, do I?

      • God

        I have to choose between; Yosuke, Junpei, Akihiko, Aigis, Shinji, Minato (i still refuse to call him makoto), Yu, Rise (if playable) and Yukari, I also have an interest to a leser extent in; Naoto, Kanji, Koromaru, Mitsuru and Ken.

        • Slickyslacker

          Ahaha, I would love for Rise and even Fuuka to be playable, but I doubt it.

          • God

            Who knows? Maybe they will be support units.

        • Saphira

          Actually, I kinda saw Fuuka/Rise doing support… I think it’s the one in the Japanese Nintendo Direct vid OwOb

        • Saphira

          Oh here, found it O3O
          It’s at around 0:47

          • God

            Awesome! I just hope they let me choose wich one to use, after playing persona 3 four times i’m kinda sick of fuukas dumb navigating quotes… not that rise’s are any smarter, mind you.

  • totoro

    I really like how they showed the interactions between the two parties, got me really hyped. Who would’ve thought Mitsuru would be hanging out with Chie of all people, I thought she’d be with Naoto or something.

    And those remixes, I wasn’t expecting those. I had feels.

  • DyLaN

    My sides XD The humor potential is strong with this one and the character interaction interest me too.

    Poor Theo…. Oh hey its Marie! Pls be playable, Atlus!

    • Steven Higgins

      She wasn’t playable in Golden, so I doubt that will change, esp since she wasn’t given an into.

      • God

        They said tere were 20 playable characters, so i think it’s safe to assume there are more people than the ones that were given an intro.

      • natchu96

        She’s also somewhat on the . . . godlike end of the spectrum from what we’ve seen.

        Being turned into a block of ice at the hot springs is one thing, S.E.E.S., but what about lightning blasts?

        She IS technically a god.

        • s07195

          Maybe she can use ‘spells’ (as in elemental ‘magic’) the traditional RPG way? XD

  • Chon Pak

    If Theodore is there, why isn’t FemMC there as well T^T

    • DyLaN

      I think its been establish that Minato/P3MC is canon and Theo exist as well in Arena. IIRC anyway.

      • Steven Higgins

        But, so far they’re saying that this one is non-canon, so FeMC could’ve been there.

        • DyLaN

          Did they say anything abt Q being non-canon? I would like to see your source.

          • God

            His source is common sense, the least common of the senses.

          • MasterScrub

            Persona 4 Arena is canon, so unless Q ends with a memory wipe then it wouldn’t make any sense that the casts of 3 and 4 wouldn’t recognize each other in Arena.

          • Steven Higgins

            My source is Silliconera. Go back to the article on here that first talked about the announcement they call it a “non-canon spin off”. Though to be fair, they said the same thing about P4A at first

        • natchu96

          Yeah, but since the FeMC and the MC were inherently set up in a way that they can’t be anything but the same person, that doesn’t quite work until they really push the time travel shenanigans over the edge.

    • God

      Theodore could be selected even if you were male.

  • Bio438

    Zen must be looking at his shadow at the end of the trailer.

  • I just love the end of the P3 centric vid. The 3 Bro-sketeers. Who cannot also forget a peeved off Margaret in the other vid?

  • Lazulis

    Koromaru had his “arf! :D” intro, I am happy.

  • DragKudo

    Memories of school and You mixed oh T.T FEELS

  • Nanaki

    This is just so…beautiful.

  • This looks soooooo goood!!! have they revealed what overworld exploration is like? is it the first person EO style?

    • Steven Higgins


  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m so hyped…..!!

  • Warren

    This is a beautiful game! The love, the friendship, the fanservice! Don’t ever change Atlus, move on to the future! I’ll support you and my future children will support you as well!

    • God

      I don’t think your hand can give you children…

      • SnackEater

        At least let him try.

        • God

          I laughed so hard to your comment.

      • Warren

        you should change that name to Satan cause God would never say that.

        • God

          And what exactly do you know about me?
          PS: No such thing as satan, my boy.

          • Kazekage Gaara

            Go back to your worthless palace Luci :3

          • God

            I’m guessing by Luci you mean Lucifer? Anyways, don’t confuse with that guy, his trolling level is way below mine, and you should be more thankful of him, it was his idea to give you free will…

  • Kelohmello

    lol @ Mitsuru getting mad at being asked for her three sizes and Kuma going “PLEASE PUNISH ME!”. This game’s character interactions are probably gonna be great, will be a treat for fans of Persona 3 and 4 for sure.

  • Steven Higgins


  • LastManStanding

    Anyone else noticed “Is That Blood Thine or the Enemy’s” from Etrian Odyssey III at the second video (0:30)? I got chills.

  • CDM

    Oh god the end of the P3 vid hits me where it hurts. Memories of You and its in-game remixes still give me the feels and are some of my favorite video game songs of all time.

    • Arizato

      Yeah and it’s not just that! They mixed “Memories of You” and “Memories of the City” in that last part. Two of my favorite songs from the P3 soundtrack and it sounds glorious. I really hope that mashup version is on the soundtrack.

  • Kaetsu

    The day this comes out my friends and I are going to burn some bread :P

  • Izzeltrioum


    Just STOP it, Atlus.

    I DON’T CARE about this spin-off. Rather, what about Persona Diva F? Yes, that canon one.

    More info please.

    • God

      Well, fuck you, i care. And what do you want them to tell you about P4:DAN? it’s still in the making.

  • PowerSerg

    This game needs a western release date today.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    An angry Margaret holy cow.

    Also are they calling the protagonists just “hero”?

  • KoRLumen

    Wow. I absolutely adore this art direction. They’re all.. just… so… ADORABLE.

  • SnackEater
    • God

      I wonder i this will have social links, scripted ones if nothing else.

    • DeadLineDance

      Gosh dang it, why isn’t this person top comment?! Thank you!!

      • SnackEater

        Sure no problem :)

  • konsama

    O my, Marie is in it too? God im so hyped for this. LOCALIZE FAST PLEASE.

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    I’ve never been so excited for this game… I need it. Now.

  • Hinataharem

    Those trailers….were honestly amazing.

  • Arcana Drill

    Woaw this was…. so perfect! Atlus sure knows how to hype fans.

  • katamari damacy

    Missing the P3P female main character. I wanted the Persona 4 main character to expand his harem

  • So the story’s different depending on which MC you pick or something like that…god damn it! Am I the only one who wants English trailers? I want to understand what the story is about. Better yet, I want the game in English so I can find out for myself.

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    Oh look, another Memories of You arrangement.

  • ThatGuy3190_7

    Those piano version of each game’s main theme made me tear up.
