NES, Smash, and Persona Q 3DS XLs announced ⊟
Nintendo of America announced three (!) special edition 3DS XLs today! The Smash Bros. system releases in red and blue on September 19, the NES edition hits on October 10, and the Persona Q portable comes out on November 25.
Please note that all of them are priced at $199.99 and do not include a bundled game, even though two of them are branded with specific titles. Also, all of them will be exclusive to GameStop. Ughhhhhhhhhhh.
Persona 3 and 4 heroes show off for Q ⊟
You might remember Atlus putting out a million of these trailers for the 3DS RPG in Japan months ago. With Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth's U.S. release coming up (November 25), get ready to see them all over again, now with English text and voice acting!
I’ve embedded the two videos Atlus released today for Persona 3 and 4’s protagonists after the break:
Persona Q coming on November 25 ⊟
Atlus has a North American release date for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth launch, and it’s… too far away. 3DS owners are going to have a lot of new toys to play with at the end of the year.
The November date gives you time to save up for the premium-priced $49.99 game (includes 11 tarot cards), the $79.99 limited edition bundle (includes 11 tarot cards, art boooklet, soundtrack CD, 3DS XL hard case, and a special box), and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for PS3/Xbox 360 (includes inflatable Teddie bop bag and the rest of the tarot cards to complete your collection).
PREORDER Persona Q (Premium Edition), upcoming games
Persona Q's English E3 trailer ⊟
I feel like we’ve watched two dozen of these Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth clips already leading up to the 3DS game’s launch in Japan, but now we get to see them all again before the Western release, in English this time.
While I don’t see the game up for preorder yet, Amazon does have a variety of Persona Q 3DS skins, 2DS decals and cases, and even the limited edition Grimoire system (for slightly cheaper than you’d find on Play Asia).
I love this FOE’s attack in Persona Q ⊟
This Demon’s muscles are just straight-up knocking out people. The GIF comes from a new clip Atlus put out for Japan showcasing the game’s FOEs.
There’s also a clip that demonstrates map making in Persona Q. Yup, that sure is Etrian Odyssey-esque. Persona Q releases for the 3DS in the U.S. this fall.
Persona Q iPhone cases ⊟
And so psychedelic… and so faux-spooky… with cool dynamic group shots of teen detectives OH MY GOD Persona Q is Scooby-Doo.
Five-minute Persona Q trailer, subtitled ⊟
Thank you PepsimanGB! I’m even more excited about this 5-minute Persona Q video now that I can easily understand what’s being said. The dialogue seems really fun!
Between the use of Personas, the in-battle/dungeon dialogue, and just the look of the thing, it seems more Persona-y than Etrian-y, even if only superficially. That should really help ease me into the hardcore dungeon crawling.
Five minutes of Persona Q ⊟
Wow, this is a big old Persona Q trailer! It’s got a little bit of everything: story, battle, mapping, chibis… and what it doesn’t have, you can find in another trailer here.
Persona 4 Golden, Muramasa, more on sale on NA PSN ⊟
If you have PS Plus, Persona 4 Golden will be $14.62 ($19.49 without Plus), the cheapest I’ve seen it, when the PS Store updates today. It’s a good time to get it if you have the spare cash and time! That might still be my favorite RPG ever, and one of my favorite Vita games.
Also amazing: Muramasa Rebirth for $7.49/$12.49, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for $9/$15, and the amazing Danganronpa for $32.39/$35.99. The sales (and many more on PS3 and Vita) all run through May 5 as part of a Golden Week-themed Japanese game sale – quite a nice idea.
The Special Edition Persona Q 3DS XL ⊟
It’s very different from past limited edition systems — I like it a lot! The text on the lid translates to ”The Grimoire of Hearts: Personality changes the world,” according to Anime News Network.
This will release as part of a $250 bundle alongside Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth in Japan on June 5. The game’s U.S. release is expected this fall (we likely won’t get the system).
Atlus PSN games on sale again ⊟
Seems like Atlus’s PS3 and PS Vita games go on sale every week! I am quite all right with this, especially when it means savings on Persona, Persona 2 (both of them)! Persona 3 Portable, and Persona 4 Golden on Vita!
Image comes from the Twitter responses to Atlus’s announcement. I don’t know.
BUY PS Vita, upcoming games
Persona Q 3DS XL case ⊟
Really digging the psychedelic styling of this 3DS XL case by Sega! I’m not sure how Persona 3 + Persona 4 + Etrian Odyssey = Austin Powers, but I’ll take it. I also enjoy the lil’ Teddie and Koromaru inside!
