Persona Spin Offs: Screenshots Released by Atlus for Persona Q, Dancing All Night, and Arena Ultimax
Along with today's localization confirmation by Atlus for the upcoming four Persona games, including but not surprisingly, Persona 5, were a shipment of a bunch of screenshots per title (well, minus Persona 5).
The ever cutesy Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth has had five screenshots, one still from an anime cutscene, and two character artworks released, by Atlus. The screens are from the Japanese build of the game and have mostly been available prior to today, but I've bestowed upon myself the title of GameNGuide's resident Persona Fanboy, so it is my duty to share them with you.
The next batch of screens are for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the dance and rhythm game for the PlayStation Vita. Dancing All Night stars Rise Kujikawa, a former pop-idol that needs to return to her groovy roots in order to rescue her fellow idol friends from the Midnight Stage world. It's absolutely ridiculous, but if you like Hatsune Miku, then you'll probably enjoy this game, too.
The last batch of screenshots provided by Atlus were from the upcoming Persona 4: Arena sequel, Ultimax for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The screenshots show off the three new contenders to the arena. Junpei Iori and Yukari Takeba of Persona 3 fame join a new character to the Persona series, Sho Minazuki.
Picking up shortly after the events of the first Arena game, Persona 4: Arena Ultimax takes place in Inaba, the setting of Persona 4. After a mysterious red fog envelopes the town, it's up to the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4 to save the town and find out who's behind the string of events.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and Persona 4: Arena Ultimax will be available this Fall. Persona 5 and Persona 4: Dancing All Night will be available sometime in 2015.
