Persona Q Hero Trailer

If you’ve recovered from all those new video games last week, well, you’re made of stronger stuff than most. Gamers are foot deep into Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, and the lack of games coming out during the Thanksgiving holiday will keep it that way. However, this week’s new releases are worth a look.

This week sees the release of Persona Q and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, the latest in the series.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth – 3DS – Nov. 25

In Persona Q, some wonky stuff is happening, this has some profound ramifications for both the cast of Persona 4 and Persona 3. The wonkiness manifests in both a bending of space and time to bring the Persona 3 crew to Yasogami High, and a mysterious clock tower appearing at Yasogami High trapping the Persona 4 team there. Naturally, the two teams meet, but they also come in contact with two new mysterious characters named Zen and Rei. Both teams and Zen & Rei will have to work together to figure out what brought them together and caused the clock tower to appear.

Persona Q marks the first time a Persona game has been released on a Nintendo system. It is also the first Persona RPG in six years. The game is a co-developed by the teams behind Persona and Etrian Odyssey. The collaboration influences the gameplay style of Persona Q. Players utilize a first-person perspective when exploring dungeons, they will also use the map-making mechanics from the Etrian series.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions – PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC/Mac/Linux – Nov. 25/27

There hasn’t been a main entry in the Geometry Wars series since 2008, when Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 released for Xbox 360. The long period between games is due to the acquisition of Bizarre Creations in 2007, and the subsequent closure of it in 2011. When Sierra re-formed as Activision’s indie brand, one of the first games they announced was Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. The new game in the series is made by Lucid, a studio comprised of key Bizarre Creation members.

Also new to the game is an online competitive multiplayer. Geometry Wars 3 features a full single-player campaign with boss battles, persistent upgrades, and 10 different modes. Dimensions’ co-op mode is reworked, allowing players to work together on the same grid. Fans of the series can also enjoy classic modes in the game’s brand new engine.
