It feels like a long wait for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, Atlus' fascinating mix of Persona fan-favourites with the dungeon crawling of the Etrian Odyssey series, but as that 5th June Japanese release date draws nearer — it's a Fall arrival in North America — more details continue to be unveiled.

Today's treat is a first look at the limited edition 3DS XL coming to Japan, dubbed the "Velvet Model" which gives us a lovely enigmatic (and vertically-aligned) front with some more overtly Persona-like character images on the bottom. This set will retail at ¥25380 (excluding tax), which is approximately £150 or $250USD, and will include a download copy of the game.


What do you think of the design? Would you buy it if they released it in North America / Europe, or are you that enamoured you're going to buy the Japanese version anyway? Let us know in the comments section below.
