For me, there’s no greater video game than a crossover video game. If you sit back and think about it, it’s basically a fan fiction story come to life. I cried when “Marvel VS Capcom 3″ got released, “Street Fighter X Tekken” had me naked by the title screen and “Project X Zone” made me wet my pants. Yeah…I love crossover titles THAT MUCH.
When I heard about “Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth” I was institutionalised for a period of three weeks but I managed to get myself out of the straight jacket and back at my work desk with enough time to research the characters of “Persona 3″ just so I’d be able to enjoy the game a little more. Having only played “Persona 4 Golden” but absolutely loving it, I was very much excited for “Q” but still felt as though I needed to do my homework before jumping in “half prepared”.
North America, those lucky bastards, got the game before us here in Australia and an influx of reviews flooded the net. Knowing that I’d soon be receiving my own copy of the game for review…I ignored them all. Now it’s our time to shine and thanks to ATLUS and their local distributors Bandai Namco Games, I’ve been given the chance to take on another insane JRPG with everything I’ve got but whether I come out of it the same as I went into it is a whole other thing entirely.
