Watching Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth get its official announcement this past week has been interesting. I've seen so many different reactions, both positive and negative. The whole situation got... me thinking about the importance of handhelds, like the 3DS, for the niche RPG market and how the lower development costs allow studios to still take chances like these.

Warning: The video contains spoilers for Resident Evil 2, so if you haven't played it yet and plan to, you might want to look away. Resident Evil 2 has plenty of secrets to uncover across all of its... playthroughs, but some of them require a bit of a defter touch to find.
