Japan Getting Special Edition Persona Q 3DS

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth was recently confirmed for release in North America on 3DS, which is very cool, but not quite as cool as the Persona Q 3DS in store for Japan.

The back of the system features the cute versions of the casts from Persona 3 and 4 as they appear in Persona Q, while the front is styled to look the cover of a book.

It's all part of Persona Q's Velvet Room Edition, which includes the system you see above, the game, and the game's soundtrack. It releases in Japan on June 5. The game releases this fall in North America.

Our Take
We have been seeing a lot of special 3DS handhelds recently. Games like Yoshi's New Island, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team have all inspired special hardware. This isn't a Nintendo developed game like those other examples, but there is a chance it could be brought to North America. I'm not a huge Persona player, but I really like the way this 3DS looks, and I hope it makes its way over here.
