There are undoubtedly long term franchise fans and RPG enthusiasts eagerly awaiting Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth on 3DS. It'll be the first Persona game on Nintendo hardware, has a new art style for the occasion and will blend in gameplay elements from the popular Etrian series. It seems like a smart move from Atlus to introduce the sizeable Nintendo portable system userbase to a new franchise while incorporating some familiar mechanics.

With its 5th June arrival in Japan and a 'Fall' localisation in the West, we're likely to see an increasing number of videos and teases in the coming weeks. Atlus' Japanese YouTube channel is pitching in already with a neat video showing the Battle System in action, combining a first-person perspective with various attack options and menus.

As it's in Japanese we can only partially grasp the detail of what's happening, but it's nice to have an early look and enjoy the somewhat awesome music. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
