Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Shows Its Take On Etrian Odyssey’s Battle System
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will be borrowing several dungeon crawling elements from the Etrian Odyssey series, such as dungeon mapping and F.O.E. enemies. In Atlus’ latest trailer, we get to see some of the combat action in upcoming Persona game.
The video starts out with a look at the field navigation, which seems to have a striking resemblance to the Etrian Odyssey series with a touch of Persona. One difference from Persona 3 and Persona 4, is it looks like the battles will be done through random encounters.
The battle starts out with a brief line from Fuuka indicating that there are three Shadows. At this point, you can take your time and decide on what skills and strategies you’ll be using to defeat the monsters.
Yukiko is shown hitting the enemy’s weakness, followed by an All-Out Attack called out by Aigis, which has a higher chance of happening with the Boost feature. Additionally, by leveling up the Personas, their skills and abilities will also upgrade into higher ranked versions.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will be released in North America in fall 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.
