The newest Persona game releases next week in Japan and Atlus has released three new short trailers highlighting gameplay mechanics.
The first one titled F.O.E shows the player avoiding and running away from powerful enemy shadows chasing after them in different areas. Like in other Persona games, sometimes it’s better to run than to fight.
The Second one shows the map making system. Like in the Etrian Odyssey games, players will be able to make their own maps on the bottom touch screen. They can make them as elaborate or as simple as they want and even colour code it. If players don’t feel comfortable enough making their own, they can enable an auto map creation system that fills out as they explore labyrinths.
The final one shows the school interaction gameplay. In the past two main title Persona games, players will be able to walk around a school in the game and interact with the other party members from Persona 3 and Persona 4.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth releases next week on June 5th in Japan, and will be coming this fall in North America exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.
