Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth has officially launched for the Nintendo 3DS. This totally canon story in the Persona universe crosses the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4, something a few other games in the series have also done recently.

Today we have the launch trailer for this 3DS affair, and fans of the franchise will obviously recognize heroes from both major Persona entries.

For this first person dungeon crawler with more classic RPG mechanics, the traditional Persona art style has been dropped in favor of a more chibi look. It's a nice break for the franchise, and I'm sure the tweaked appearance will likely make a lot fans happy.

Our own Ron Duwell is currently fighting his way through the labyrinth in Persona Q, so stay tuned for his review in the coming week. I imagine he's having a blast, though. That nerd.

Anyone else picking this up?
