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.

Special visual materials: Persona Q art book ⊟

Atlus and Famitsu have put out a “cool, sharp, superior, and ultimate guide book” in Japan with some 250 pages of concept art, sketches, illustrations, staff interviews, storyboards, and more, according to DualShockers. Published overseas today by Kadokawa / Enterbrain, the book retails for ¥2,052 / $19.

It’s not for sale at any import sites yet as far as I can tell, but Amazon has a huge variety of Persona Q straps, stickers, mini towels, and decals if you’re into that stuff. Of course, the retailer also has copies of the game, along with its limited edition set.

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:

Shin Megami Tensei IV heads to Europe in Q3 ⊟
Atlus finally completed all the proper demon negotiations required to bring Shin Megami Tensei IV to Europe. It’ll be released on eShop only (in English, which probably won’t be an issue for Tiny readers) sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Meanwhile… sorry Europe, but the game is on sale on the North American eShop for $25. That sale’s active through June 30. Image via Ounomachi.

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).

Glorious Shin Megami IV OST box ⊟
I’ve embedded an unboxing of the recently released Shin Megami Tensei IV OST posted by @xanthax after the break. There’s not too much exciting stuff included in the set besides the neat sticker and the five million tracks on the four discs, but this was a great excuse to share this legendary cover that we somehow never posted when it was originally unveiled. It’s so awesome and perfect and I would not mind having that framed as a poster in my office.

Play-Asia still and AmiAmi should still have these in stock.

Shin Megami Tensei coming to iOS in English ⊟

Whoa, finally, a chance to play the first Shin Megami Tensei game in English! And with virtual buttons all over the screen, but oh well. Atlus plans to release Shin Megami Tensei on the App Store March 18, for 8 bucks.

Who else is out there saying “You know that super old RPG we made back in the day? You know, the one with all the text? Let’s translate that and release it. Eight bucks sounds about right.” Nobody. Nobody else is saying that. Atlus is showing everybody how it’s done.

Etrian Odyssey IV for $20, Soul Hackers for $25 ⊟

I know Etrian Odyssey Untold comes out in just a few days, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on an opportunity to fill your 3DS library with more Atlus RPGs. Besides, who knows when we’ll get more from the company…

Shout outs to TheYoungDoyley for the EOIV art. Oh, and here are the Amazon links for the discounted copies of Etrian Odyssey IV and Soul Hackers.
[Update: EOIV is on backorder, but you can still get it for $20 under alternate sellers.]

PSA to all the girls out there ⊟
It’s nonsensical stuff like this bit from Shin Megami Tensei IV that makes Atlus USA one of my favorite in-house localization teams, probably second only to Nintendo of America’s Treehouse group. Speaking of, Jason Schreir has published an excellent profile on that team over at Kotaku — lots of great notes on Mother 3, Animal Crossing, and even Starfy.
