Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth 3DS XL Is A Handheld Persona Book

By Spencer . March 14, 2014 . 1:04am

Atlus and Nintendo made an awesome looking Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth limited edition 3DS XL. The system has a Velvet Room motif and is designed to look like Persona compendium on the front. The back has all of the Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters in the dungeon crawler.

    My god…this is glorious! *__*
    Why isn’t my money going through my screen! :U

  • BlinkingRune

    This is, without a doubt, the coolest 3DS I’ve ever seen.

    • Warren

      To bad they never bring these over to the USA. People over here want cool stuff too…sigh(drags a stick through the sand)

      • BlinkingRune

        I know it’s unlikely, if not completely impossible, but that isn’t going to stop me from wishing otherwise. Wishing’s free, at least.

      • Learii

        they never bring it because is too cool for us to have it

      • Keiji Johnson

        But the game itself is coming to the USA, so it’s possible that the 3DS will be available here as well.

      • katamari damacy

        What’s even worse is that the 3DS is region locked, so even if we went through the pain of importing it, we’d have to buy all the games from that region as well.

    • Amen brother.
      Now if only we could convince the gods at Atlus to bring this over here….

    • E.T.993

      What if Nintendo marketed the shit out of the game by releasing a 3DS XL and that we might have a chance to get Persona 5 on Wii U?

    • Zer0faith
  • AlphaSixNine


  • Triplicity

    Wow, and I thought the Fire Emblem 13 one looked pretty good already. Best design yet; too bad about that region-locking…

  • Kris

    This is probably my favorite 3DS XL since the SMTIV one… Atlus is killing it with these designs!

  • That SMT pentagram look alike though.

  • SeventhEvening

    Oh, I really hope this gets a Korean version!!!!

  • notentirelythere

    Gwuhguhgh. This is way too cute.
    Especially, I appreciate how the design isn’t upside down as you flip it up to play. That’s a huge bummer with so many special edition 3DSes.

  • Lazulis

    This and the SMT 4 3DS XL are so beautiful I’m sad I can’t own them or play US games on them.

  • eliram

    japan only?

  • BizarreJelly

    Everytime you come to terms with the awesome 3DS you own, another one always strolls in looking just as awesome. I want them all!

    They’d just look so pretty with my golden tri-force one…

  • Don’t like it that much. If they made the back the front then that would be better.

  • Shippoyasha

    Very smart to make it look like a book on the outside.

    The Yoshi limited edition 3DS looks like a bad Photoshop effort now.

  • Gigus

    I really hope comes to the west.

  • Firion Hope


  • Astraye

    Awesome it’s written in French !

  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    Hope someone creates a sticker set of these so you can buy those rather an additional 3DS XL.

    A nice special edition all the same though.

  • Pyrofrost

    I have now been fully tempted to double dip and splurge on a Japanese 3DS

  • I hate all these limited editions 3DS’s. Seriously, how many 3DS’s do you want me to get? How much of my money do you want? And why are they all region locked to Japan? I’m thinking I might have to start a gallery for all the limited edition 3DS’s that I want and look so damn good. You can look, but not touching. They are too sexy to play with (which makes NO sense. O_o)

    • Slayven19

      I’m sure some rich person would attempt to collect all special 3ds.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    That’s really cool but I can’t buy another 3DS XL.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Awww, wish they had called it an LL and not an XL in this article. I actually had gotten my hopes up for a second

  • pixxxelz

    Well looks like I’m finally getting a 3ds

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Wow so cool.^_^

  • Anesia Hunter

    So, what are the chances that Nintendo isn’t going to have enough of these Persona LE 3DSes and then say “We didn’t know so many people would want these Persona LE 3DSes.”

    • Lumi

      100%. Wish there’s a US ed 3DS XL that’s just as cool looking as this, I want to upgrade my screen size…

  • Ren Yuumei


  • Skeptika Crediblus

    I would throw my 3DS out the window tomorrow if I could buy this thing.

  • 하세요

    I may be the only one not drooling over this. Maybe my brain still wants the MH ones more. Neat design, but I find it a tad too busy for my liking.


  • “Le Grimoire” huh

    thanks reddit

  • Solomon_Kano

    That’s fantastic.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I would love to have this.

  • Kaetsu

    Interesting that the front is in French.
    “The grimoire of the heart”
    “The personality changes the world”
    That’s the rough translation. Kind of hard to translate French because they classify objects(like chairs, pencils,e.t.c) as male or female.

    • Testsubject909

      Your translation is rough. And that’s just because of one word.

      Rather, it’s your localization that’s rough. Written in french, it’s not as awkward sounding as “The Personality Changes The World”.

      La Personalité change le monde. Localized appropriately to sound exactly as it does in french would sound more like “Your personality changes the world” While yes you can argue that it should be “Votre personalité change le monde” for it to be a fully accurate translation. The way that french works, pointing out a trait like one’s Personality can be done by directly stating the trait itself without sounding as awkward whereas in English, that trait needs to be connected to a more general statement towards a group.

      Because let’s be honest. “The Personality changes the world” sounds awkward as all hell in English.

  • FX102A

    Would like to own but I really want to avoid buying the console purely for collecting purpose unless its a series I really, really love. I use my Black Launch 3DS when travelling and my Zelda 3DS XL at home. The Ocarina of Time one remains boxed.

    Still, I love the book look on the front.

  • Badass

  • Pythia Brixham

    Currently attempting to recreate it.

    EDIT: I am probably going to have to redraw A LOT of it. My plans are to slap this onto a generic 3DSXL cover after everything is all nice and edited.

    • lackofstyle

      ah thats cool, are you gonna draw it on or make some kind of custom decal sticker

      • Pythia Brixham

        Make a decal sticker an place it onto a generic 3DS XL cover.

        • lackofstyle

          Ah~ I want one….

        • Kango234

          Is there any site where I can follow you, because I want one too?

          • Pythia Brixham

            Damn, I didn’t think people would even notice my comment. Just contact me on Twitter (@PythiaTheLiar) and I will get back to you when I can.

    • Whoa…
      Is there any way others could get one when you’re done with it?

      • Pythia Brixham

        I will probably post the design online when I am done (Probably on imgur or something). I am NOT going to print out decals for people. If you want the design when I am done with it, just contact me on Twitter (@PythiaTheLiar) and I’ll get back to you when I can.

  • vileBrenman

    I would kill for this…. Please let this come to the states

  • Ban The Jackass

    I wonder if they have a red version.

  • Herok♞

    I think this might be the one to finally make me cave and buy my import 3DS, now if I will have $300 in June is the question.

  • Kayriss Wins

    Jeez how many special designed 3ds’ are there in japan now? there should atleast be 20 by now…

    • Cody Bloodlines Blevins

      Over 60

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    Must. Resist. Temptation.

    • Don’t attempt to resist.
      It’s calling youuuuu.

    • Kaetsu


  • this is amazing…

  • Jero

    Region lock strikes again :'(

  • celery

    If this manages to make it State-side, I would upgrade in a second.
    I’d say this has a better chance of that, since Persona generally seems to be more popular internationally than SMT.

  • Kornelious

    Dang, This makes the Zelda 3DS look like someone just etched a fake triforce onto it XD

  • James Enk

    sooo cool

  • Nagi

    10/10 would go all the way to japan for that @[email protected] but i i can’t :<

    • Testsubject909

      Instead, just import it.

      • Nagi

        sigh hope my attempts will be successful or someone sells online

  • Snorlaxation


    I Want this. Who do i have to sacrifice?!

    Seriously though. I Love this. I want this. Japan… please?


    If that made it to North America it’s pretty much guaranteed that I’ll get it.

    I mean, I already have 4 so what’s 1 more?

    • Snorlaxation

      Those are beautiful. I envy you, fellow Siliconera commenter.

    • 하세요

      Wish I had money to blow like that. Only two I want is a MH one and the Threatrhythm Curtain Call one.

      • MVRK HNTR

        Just checked out the Threatrhythm Curtain Call and wow, it is really nice!

        Too bad it’s Japan only :(

        • 하세요

          It would give me an excuse to upgrade my standard JP 3DS. Just don’t know if I want to pay $400+ for that excuse.

    • Ricardo C

      I’d kill for that Yoshi one. You’re so lucky

      • MVRK HNTR

        Just came out today :)

        I keep telling myself that the last one I got would be the last one but special editions keep coming out lol

    • Testsubject909

      And in terms of presentation and level of swag. These four combined do not even compare.

  • colorblindnightmare

    Not likely to come to the us…….FFFFFGGF

  • Ricardo C

    And this my friends is why I waited for a black XL. Nintendo should have brought back the concept of the gameboy micro that is customization. The 3DS should have gotten this or people would have to spend more than they have to for ONE system alone. But oh well Im just one person, dont know if anyone would agree.

  • awat

    aw man this 3ds looks sweet

  • James Darkly

    I was thinking about importing Japanese 3DS, I think time has come!

  • Pandakids09 .

    You never know Atlus knows that the Persona series has a huge following

  • chroma816


    I really kinda wanna buy this. I don’t need it, I have a 3ds, but I really want it.

  • Rabbit

    This… This is why you wait.
