Sneaky sneaky, Atlus, spreading your preorder/early adopter bonus across two games. Fans who pick up this fall's 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 $80 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.
