What Can People Expect from Persona Q2?
Since Persona 5 is the latest installment in the Persona series, it is natural that Persona 5 characters will be receiving the most time in the spotlight. However, it has been confirmed that Persona 4 and Persona 3 characters will be becoming playable in that particular order. Moreover, it has been confirmed that the female protagonist of Persona 3 Portable will have an important role in Persona Q2‘s story, which is something that could have interesting implications for the series as a whole.
Mechanics-wise, some things will be remaining the same whereas other things will be seeing some changes.

Regardless, interested individuals can expect Persona Q2 to follow in the footsteps of Persona Q. As a result, if they are a fan of multiple Persona games, they should consider checking it out, particularly if they happen to enjoy dungeon crawlers.
