The 3DS, Vita and PS3 will all receive new Persona 4 titles that will see players dancing, dungeon diving and duking it out arena-style.
While a recent round of countdowns and teaser sites hosted by Atlus amounted ultimately to the reveal of Persona 5, there was also no lack of exciting news for fans of Persona 4 hoping for a little more time with that game's world and cast. In addition to the P5 reveal, this weekend also led to three spin-off announcements that should give players a little bit more of a good thing.
The 3DS, for instance, will be receiving a Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, which will see the cast of Persona 4 meeting up with the characters from Persona 3 for a chibi-styled dungeon crawl experience not too dissimilar from the Etrian Odyssey games. Persona 4: Dancing All Night, meanwhile, will be a "sound action" title for the PlayStation Vita that will see players competing in (we're assuming) quirky battle dances. Finally, the PS3 will be getting Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold (aka: Arena 2), a follow-up to Persona 4: Arena.
Persona Q is being slated for a June 5th, 2014 release in Japan, while Dancing All Night and Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold are coming in fall and summer of 2014, respectively. No North American or European release dates or windows have been mentioned just yet. Even so, what do you think of the new Persona 4 offerings? Are they what you were expecting or hoping for, or has Atlus taking a wrong turn with these spin-offs?
