Never mind Black Friday, the 28th of November 2014 was excellent for one reason: The European release of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. This latest adventure is the first entry in the Persona series on the 3DS, and sees the cast of both Persona 3 and Persona 4 join forces against a mystery antagonist. Unexpected events lead both teams to become trapped in Yasogami High during its yearly culture festival, along with new characters to the series, Zen and Rei.
All is not as it seems, as the crew not only find that the other students seem somehow oblivious to their existence, but lurking behind one of the attractions is the entrance to a labyrinth filled with Shadows – the recurring enemies of the Persona series. Together, the teams must navigate the dungeon and plan their escape from their culture festival/prison/nightmare.
