Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

January 28, 2015, Author: Andy Corrigan

I was, unfortunately, a latecomer to the Persona series, my first exposure being the charming Persona 4 Golden on Vita, yet its discovery and timing was extremely important to me in terms of my relationship with JRPGs. Prior to reviewing P4G for TIMJ, aside from one or two exceptions, I had grown incredibly tired of certain JRPG conventions. Thanks to its unique setting and wonderfully written characters, however, Persona reinvigorated my love for an entire genre.

Obviously, when offered the chance to revisit these characters in the 3DS exclusive spin-off, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, I was totally on board. What I found was a very different brand of Persona experience, but one that captivated me enough that I gave it my vote for Game of the Year in our 2014 End of Year series. Upon finishing it, that view has not changed.
