Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth

Hello my little nuggets!

Persona Q2 has been announced for a while now, and I cannot believe I only found out about recently! I have failed myself.. But anyhow! If you haven't read up on the post I did on Persona Q, please go take a peek at that one first!

So what's up with PQ2? The obvious difference here is that PQ2 heavily features the newest in the Persona series: Persona 5. The setting is based in a movie theater, and as per the official website:
The Persona users are trapped in a world of movies. And a girl is the one who holds the key…?
In Mementos, the Morgana Car suddenly goes out of control!? Sucked into a mysterious space, the Phantom Thieves arrived at a mysterious town where unknown enemies wander about.
Barely managing to escape, the Phantom Thieves ended up lost in a movie theater without an exit.
And then Nagi, a black-haired, white-clothed woman they met at the movie theater, and Hikari, a downcast-looking girl, informs them that they just came out of a movie.
Labyrinth-like movie worlds. And in those movies, as if something was guiding them, they encounter those who possess the same powers.
Will the Phantom Thieves be able to escape the movie theater…?

new unique characters!

As it seems, PQ2 focuses mainly on the cast of P5, though you will get the cast of P3 and P4 later on. One surprising thing to me is the appearance of  the P3's female Protagonist. In P3 on the PSP (iirc), you only get to pick the female protag as the MC after completing one round as the male protag.

In PQ2, however, both the male and female P3 protags exists as separate entities, and the female protag will be heavily involved in the plot of PQ2.

You get a total of 28 persona users to mix and match from, although I think that right off the bat you're only allowed to form a team with the P5 cast, then subsequently recruit the other Persona casts. You also get to set a second persona for team members! This is going to be super helpful.

Game system wise, it looks pretty much the same as PQ, with there being different themes for different labyrinths. The map drawing feature stayed, which is great, I really like that portion. There is an auto map feature as well.

I think PQ2 is meant to be a release for the 3DS, but they might also release on the Switch as well, considering the rising popularity for the Switch. I'm all for either; I fully intend on getting a Switch in the near future, but also don't mind putting the Switch on hold till more game releases and playing on the 3DS instead, provided it's not a New3DS only version. We'll see.

Here are the trailers!

For now, nerd out!
