A story trailer has been released for Nintendo’s first installment of Persona on any of their hardware.

Click on the video above to watch the short trailer that explains what exactly Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is about.

Essentially, Persona Q is a spinoff of the original Persona series. It has a mix of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters. Both groups find themselves trapped inside Yasogami High School and eventually find a labyrinth underneath the school. Depending on who the player selects, they will use their characters to battle enemies and restore the memories of two new characters in the franchise.

Persona spreads into the Nintendo market

Persona Q is an old-school dungeon-crawler RPG that’s already received much praise in Japan, where it was released earlier this summer. The game is being both developed and published by Atlus (NIS America for the PAL version) and will be exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS. This is the first time that a Nintendo console or handheld system has received a Persona game — all the others have been Sony PlayStation hardware.

The game is scheduled to be released on November 25th in North America. Do you plan on picking up the game on Nintendo’s handheld?
