Five Reasons To Get Excited For Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth

about X hours ago from

Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth combines the old-school dungeon-crawling gameplay of Etrian Odyssey with the rich characters from Persona 3 and 4. Full of Persona fan service, diehards will smile through every punishing battle. We had some hands-on time recently and already were enamored with it. Here’s what struck us most.

Etrian Odyssey Meets Persona Gameplay

Etrian Odyssey is well known for its challenging gameplay, and that’s not changing here. You’re still mapping your way through every nook and cranny of mysterious, shortcut-filled dungeons. Dungeons have plenty of pitfalls, like spikes, to avoid along the way. Also, F.O.E.s, ravaging minibosses, still roam the world, leaving you best off avoiding them until you’ve leveled up your characters. In our hands-on time, we avoided the nasty enemy using the art of distraction; we wiped paint off a rose which caused them to investigate, leaving an open path to the next stage.

Sherlock Holmes is widely known for being a brilliant investigator, but he is also a master of disguise – something developer Frogwares hopes to take advantage of in Sherlock Holmes' new-gen debut.
