Atlus Character Designer Shigenori Soejima Interview on Projects From 2010 – 2017, Artistic Process


Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Soejima: This was our collaboration with Etrian Odyssey, so the idea to make caricatures of the Persona characters was there from the start. But it was difficult to see the point in that.

In the end though, I decided to make the caricatures themselves become part of the art in Persona Q. By doing so, the Persona designs would become more distinct.
