Atlus has announced that Persona Q2 is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Despite many holding out hope for a version of Persona 5 to head to the Nintendo Switch, this announcement will have to do for Nintendo fans.
A teaser site for the game recently went live, and it’s using graphics and text from Persona 5 so we can likely expect that Atlus follows suit and releases something similar to what they did with Persona Q: Shadow of the Labryrinth. A crossover title, Persona Q used a different artstyle on the 3DS but focuses on dungeon crawler gameplay with characters from Persona 3 and 4. Shadow of the Labryrinth was considered canon in the Persona timeline and we can likely expect the same from Q2.
However, this is just speculation. Exact details about Persona Q2 are unknown as we’ve just gotten the announcement for the game. We can only look at the previous Q title as for what to expect from Q2.
Atlus continues their trend of releasing games on mature platforms. The 3DS’ massive installed base is probably a good place to start when asking why they chose to release Persona Q2 on Nintendo 3DS only and not have anything Persona related at this time for the Nintendo Switch.
A release date for Persona Q2 on Nintendo 3DS has not been announced at this time.
