    I'm not a huge fan of Persona (much prefer the SMT series) but Persona Q looks the most interesting to me. I'll probably pick that up.

    Also, lol Dancing All Night. Hatsune Miku Master Race.

    Lots of Persona Q footage here.
    Gameplay is mostly first person, but during battles the camera pulls back whenever you do something. It also looks like there will be a lot more cutscenes than in Persona 3/4.

    Lucky me, when I finally get a 3DS I'll have more than just Pokémon X to desperately want.

    Also, even though there's an "and more!" tagged onto the list, Persona 4 Dance takes care to specifically mention Kanji as a playable character. :v: It's like they know we want to see Kanji + - get bent   .

    And now I'm sold on a day 1 buy.

    Also, "Shadow of the Labyrinth"? I'm probably looking too hard for a connection that doesn't even exist, but isn't Shadow Labrys' battle theme "Shadows of the Labyrinth"?

    That's some good announcement right there. Could not give a fuck about the dancing game, but P5 for PS3, PQ for 3DS, and Adachi in Ultimax? Best gaming news day in a while.

    I was thinking that, too. + - Shadow Labrys's "Persona", Asterius, is literally the Minotaur who dwelled in the Cretan Labyrinth. Ariadne, Labrys's Persona, helped Theseus navigate the labyrinth to kill the Minotaur.   I'm wondering if there's going to be a connection there, myself.

    Another thing I noticed: SEES has its original Personas. I'm guessing since the Investigation Team is caught up in this game during the Culture Festival, SEES must be from some time in September (everyone is present and no Personas have evolved).

    So it's pretty much a Dragon Quest battle mechanic with a Persona theme? That sounds alright.

    Also, the Persona 3 main character is confirmed to be named Minato Arisato, his manga name (rather than the name from the recent movie, Yuki Makoto). Yu Narukami's keeping his name, though.

    Third trailer(s) for Persona Q (one for each team). Release confirmed for June 5, 2014 at 6980 yen, preorders open now. Bonus soundtrack on first run. Also a lot of the two casts mingling and being dorks.

    Persona Q also appeared on the Japanese Nintendo Direct, but it wasn't anything we don't know with these trailers out.

    Kinda stopped watching the trailers after the first couple, it's probably best to avoid them now because spoilers.

    + - What is she going to do? Strip at you?  

    Not gonna lie, The lack of any confirmed playable Koromaru makes me nervous about certain... "rumors" that made themselves known in the last game.

    Persona 4 the Golden Animation announced. It's a remake done by a different animation studio (A-1 Pictures) and director. Will start airing in July. Like the name suggests, Marie will be in it.
