In the latest trailer from Atlus, we get to see how combat system in Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will play out. With numerous stories previously on aspects of Q that will borrowed from the Etrian Odyssey series, such as dungeon mapping and F.O.E. enemies, for example - Its good to finally see how the gameplay is shaping up.
At the moment, judging from the trailer with how things start off, there's certainly a striking resemblance to the mechanics employed in the Etrian Odyssey series as it also looks like the battles will be done through random encounters too. Its going to be interesting seeing how this fares when released. Etrian Odyssey fans may not like the Persona styled presentation & Persona fans may end up disliking the Etrian Odyssey style of play, Or maybe it will all come together nicely - Who knows, but its going to be exciting finding out for both sets of fans Im sure. Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is still on course for its US release in fall 2014.
