Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth is officially headed to North America and Europe on Jun. 4, as Atlus has announced via social media channels. This title came out in Japan back on Nov. 28, 2018, and fans have been waiting for this launch announcement for the West ever since. The game combines the casts of Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 and drops them into Etrian Odyssey-like maze dungeons.
Furthermore, this game will be receiving a special release. Persona Q2 will have a “Launch” (aka day one) edition at a standard $39.99 price point, which comes with a set of four pins each featuring one of the main protagonists. Meanwhile, the “Premium Edition” will sell for $69.99, and it comes with the pins, an art book, a deck of playing cards, a collectable outer box, and a cute 5″ Koromaru plush doll. That sounds like a pretty good deal to me, really. Atlus is the very rare developer who makes special editions of games that fans actually like.
Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth launches in the West exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on June 4, 2019!

The only downside of this great announcement is that the game will only feature Japanese voice acting with English subtitles. This is inevitably a cost-cutting measure, but considering how great the voice acting is in the Persona games, this stings a little bit.
