Here’s the new edition of the Ray Gun. The Smash Bros. mark appears backward because it acts like a stamp. We design the Ray Gun carefully each time to ensure it doesn’t look like a real gun.

Atlus may have announced Persona 5 yesterday, but Nintendo fans will be most interested in Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. The new title was unexpected, but was a pleasant surprise.

Following the various Persona announcements, series director Katsura Hashino spoke briefly with Famitsu about the project. He said:

“Just like the experiment of making a fighting game based off the Persona series in Persona 4 Arena, which was also well received by fans, the plan of making Persona Q came from wanting a game that could bring further joy from an even more ‘unexpected element’. This will be the first title the Persona team will be making for Nintendo 3DS, and we also have Etrian Odyssey that represents Atlus for the 3DS, and we’ll be using its system as part of a ‘festive’ collaboration mindset in the development for Persona Q.”

“While we are implementing Etrian Odyssey’s system into it, just as the name implies, Persona Q will be a completely new title, but first and foremost, it’ll be for the fans of the Persona series. However, since next year will be the 25th anniversary of the Atlus brand, we’d also like to use this opportunity to spread the essence from other titles apart from the Persona titles.”

Hashino later added that “Persona Q is just entering its testing phase, and we’re currently polishing its contents.”
