Every First-Run Copy Of Persona Q Comes With Half A Set Of Cards

Sneaky sneaky, Atlus, spreading your preorder/early adopter bonus across two games. Fans who pick up the upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth for the 3DS get the second half of a set of Persona 4-themed tarot cards. The first half? That’s the fightin’ half.

In order to collect the entire set of Persona 4 tarot cards, based on the cards used as invokers in the original role-playing game, fans will have to score both Persona Q for the 3DS and a copy of Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax, the enhanced version of the fighting game, coming in September to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. How very tricksy.

Fortunately, Persona fans are the sort who’ll buy everything Persona anyway. I know this because I buy everything Persona anyway. I’m so eager to buy new Persona games that I’m purposefully avoiding telling you folks about the extremely limited Wildcards Premium Edition, so I can gather the $US80 needed to purchase it before they sell out. Wait…

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth: “The Wild Cards” Premium Edition:

  • This ultimate collector’s item is being made available in North America and will come in special packaging that includes the following items:
  • Tarot Card Set #2 – Same as above
  • Art Booklet – Collection of some of the amazing new artwork that went into Persona Q
  • Soundtrack CD – CD with the Persona Q soundtrack highlights by the ATLUS sound team
  • Deluxe Hard Case for 3DS XL – This hard case, previously available only in Japan,is coming to North America and features Persona Q designs and will house a 3DS XL

Oh well, there’s that. The announcement says preorders are open at the official website, but I’m not seeing them. You should just give up.


  • I’ve already bought the 3DS XL case from Japan but hopefully NISA does something nice for us.

  • I’ve got my limited edition preordered. Woo. Persona 4 Ultimax before then too. So much persona!

      • videogamesplus.ca for those two. Keep in mind 3DS is region locked so you would need a US 3DS. It will be interesting if Ultimax on PS3 is region locked this time around as well.

        • Cool, thanks for the info, i’ve bought from those guys before. I might just get it for the loot and wait and see if we Persona Q here so i can actually play it.

  • Collectors items across multiple purchases? RPG OCD completionists? I would say target demographic bullseye.

  • I’m done with my 360. I don’t want to buy another game for it. I do want the home edition of the Persona 4 fighter, though. It was really fun in the arcades.

    PC release? WiiU? 3DS?
