Persona Q's Wild Cards edition packs in a 3DS XL hard case

Sponsored Links

We're one month away from reuniting with Persona 3 and Persona 4's leads in the 3DS' Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, but Atlus isn't quite done tempting us with special-edition treats. While Persona Q's Limited Standard Edition will pack Tarot Card Set #2 (the first set can be earned via Persona 4 Arena Ultimax) in with the game for a combined total of $49.99, The Wild Cards Premium Edition gets a little more fancy.

In addition to Set #2, Wild Cards Premium Edition offers up a CD of tunes from the game, a hard case for the 3DS XL featuring Persona Q's cast, and a 38-page artbook, which you can flip through a sample of. The Premium Edition will go for $79.99 and, like the Limited Standard Edition, can be found at Amazon, GameStop and other select retailers.

A refresher of what Persona Q's demon-battling gameplay looks like can be viewed after the break, in which Persona 3's Yukari Takeba finds wholesome reasons to fight before getting some practice in with her bow.

We Also Have Two Brand New Character Trailers For Yukari and Teddie
This time we've got videos for Gekkoukan's sweetheart, Yukari Takeba, from Persona 3 and the anthropomorphic bear, Teddie, from Persona 4 coming your way! Ever wonder what Teddie's true form looks like? Well, you might get a glimpse if you check out his trailer!

With her high magic stat and healing skills on hand, Yukari excels as a dedicated support in any team composition. Make sure she's protected in the back line, so she can dish out wind and physical damage thanks to her Persona Io and her deadly bow! With some customization of her Sub-Personas, though, she can be a real threat on the battlefield thanks to her immense raw magic ability. Just make sure to keep an eye on the amount of SP she has left!

Junes' best mascot isn't just adorable, but bear-y strong! Teddie needs to keep things up close and bear-sonal in the front row to shred enemies with his claws. His ice-based magic get quite useful as he can deal AOE damage to multiple targets fairly early. Eventually, he'll pick up the revival spell Recarm too, which makes him even more valuable to a party composition. As a solid spell caster/damage dealer, finding a good sub-Persona with a few high damage abilities can help Teddie make the most of his high luck stat, getting critical hits when you need them most.

About Persona Q

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.
