Persona Q Details: Sacrificial Fusion and StreetPass Functionality


This week’s issue of Famitsu has details concerning Persona Q, including information on a new “Sacrificial Fusion” mechanic, StreetPass functionality and Etrian Odyssey creator involvement.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will feature a new gameplay mechanic known as Sacrificial Fusion, where players will be able to take two or more Personas and, in addition to fusing them to create a single powerful Persona, there is an option to sacrifice them in order to grant another Persona large amounts of experience points.

Persona Q will also have a StreetPass mechanic like Shin Megami Tensei IV and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, where players will be able to share Personas they have created in their compendium with players they meet via StreetPass or by posting QR codes online.

Prominent members known for their work on the Etrian Odyssey games are also working on Persona Q, such as character designer Yuji Himukai and composer Yuzo Koshiro, respectively providing special artwork and music in the game.
