With Persona Q’s release just around the corner, Atlus have released a batch of new Tutorial videos to get players ready to jump right in come release day!
Persona Q is a first-person dungeon crawling RPG adventure that combines the casts of the hit ATLUS games Persona 3 and Persona 4 in a brand new story. Not only is Persona Q the first new RPG in the Persona franchise since 2008, but it is also marks the first time a Persona game will release on a Nintendo platform. The Persona development team joined forces with the Etrian Odyssey development team to create a true fusion of the two franchises – Persona Q features the map-making and first person exploration from Etrian games and fuses it with the character development, combat, and motifs of the Persona games.
More details after the break.
Mastering map-making in the labyrinth is the key to cutting down on exploration in the dungeons, so we’ve got a bunch of tools at your disposal. Trust us, you’re going to want to play PQ with the stylus out (you haven’t lost your stylus, right?). Rekindle those old-school D&D graph paper skills and unleash your inner cartographer!
Keep an eye on your mini-maps and watch out for FOEs. These larger than life enemies are a LOT stronger than typical shadows, and can completely ruin your day. Good news, you can usually work around an FOE, it just might be a little puzzling at first….
Finally, you’ll need to make sure to watch the icon in the lower right when you’re navigating. When it turns red, you’re about to hit a random encounter! Take full control of your party to issue commands, but just make sure you don’t fight too close to FOEs, they may join in the battle.
That’s it for the system videos. We also fielded some questions we’ve been getting on our Facebook, and I went ahead and took the liberty of answering them for you. Enjoy!
