Persona Q characters can use multiple Personas

New "Boost" feature lets you use skills for zero Skill Points.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Famitsu this week offers new details on Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

Like in past Persona games, player will defeat shadows to escape the other world. Battles use a simple command-based system, and players can change their character’s weapons and personas.

Hitting enemies in their weak spots will result in a “Boost” for the attacking character. When Boosted, characters get a preemptive turn and their next skill use costs zero SP.

Your teammates will continue to assist during battles with the “Pursuit” feature. After a character attacks, another character steps in and performs another attack. Everyone has their own unique move.

Sometimes, instead of Pursuit, all the enemies can be taken down by an All-Out Attack. If you’re Boosted, then the chance of a Pursuit or All-Out Attack is higher.

In Persona Q, characters can have multiple personas. In the past, only the main character could have more than one, but this time your other party members can have “sub-Personas.” Use sub-Personas to complement the skills that each characters’ main Persona doesn’t know.

There are 20 characters and you can use five people in a party. You can set your team in front and back rows during battle. Of course, making a team that complements each other is good, but certain character combinations will have special dialogue occurrences.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is due out for 3DS in Japan on June 6.
