This week, Famitsu has some of the first coverage of Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth. That includes an interview with Daisuke Kanada, who directed the last game and is producer on this title.

During the interview, Kanada spoke about how Persona Q2 came to be, the music, characters, story, and the decision to include the protagonist of Persona 3 Portable. You can read our translation of the discussion below.

Etrian Odyssey X did pretty well in its first week in Japan. Between August 2 and August 5, the game sold 72,000 copies.

According to Media Create, Etrian Odyssey X sold through 87.57% of its initial shipment in Japan. Had it not been as supply-constrained, it’s possible that it would have sold more.

The last Etrian Odyssey entry, Etrian Odyssey V, sold 93,000 copies in its first week. The sell-through rate for the previous title was 75.84%.
