I was starting to get concerned, as it had been almost five days since Atlus posted a new trailer for their Nintendo 3DS sequel Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth. Fortunately, a new character spot arrived today, starring Persona 3's cutesy bodyguard bot, Aigis.
Designed as an anti-Shadow weapon, Aigis is seemingly the last functioning unit in existence. Aigis joins up with the SEES team at Gekkouken High where she demonstrates a strong call of duty to protect the protagonist. Although she starts out unemotionally following protocol, Aigis eventually warms to the concept of emotion, developing the ability to emote, care and even fall in love like a real human.
And she has a missile launcher stored in her back.
Aigis joins the long list of characters from Persona 3 & 5 teaming up to take on bosses in a selection of cinematic dungeons, covering various movie genres. Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth launches in Japan on Nintendo 3DS November 29. There has been no word yet on a western localisation.
