Persona News!

Oh Persona...

Via Andriasang, we have word from Famitsu scans about some future Atlus plans.

First is that similar to P3P there will be a remake of Persona 4 for a handheld, though for the Vita this time. Renamed Persona: Golden, we can expect a new character named Mary, some online capabilities (being able to ask friends for help if you're about to perish in dungeons), as well as other bits and bobs here and there. This particular game caught the eye of some gay gamers due to the exploration of Kanji presented.

We don't have a firm release date for the Vita on PAL or US shores, so the fact that this is set to release in Spring 2012 may well make it a 'launch window' type title that may well entice some fans.

Further, there appears to be a title coming to us called The Ultimate In Mayonaka Arena: a fighting game for home consoles featuring characters from Personas 3 & 4. The devs behind this particular game? Arc System Works, of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue fame. Apparently this will take a few months after the events of Persona 4 and feature a story of some manner, but not too many more details.

Also, Persona 5? In the works, but beyond that, Andriasang had little else more to say beyond the staff involved.

I was planning on getting Persona 4 for the PS2 one of these days.

Guess I'll wait for the Vita remake.

I'll only buy it if they let the male MC romance Kanji.... Though I realize I shouldn't hold my breath waiting.

I just hope they don't add a female MC and use that as justification to "de-gay" or "set the record STRAIGHT" on Kanji. Gotta say, I can't help but be worried some suit or higher-up will want to do that, as unlikely a scenario as it would be.

Well there go my hopes for a 3DS version :(
I guess I'll just have to watch the anime when it comes out, as I won't be getting a Vita (way too expensive for me to get a Vita for 1 game).

Shame, I was hoping for a full-blown HD reboot on a bigger screen. I'm getting tired of playing some of the classics and my personal favorites on tiny portable systems :/

Female MC is not going to be a new feature, says a producer of P4G.

I'd look forward to wooing Kanji, and have long wanted to play through this game. I've been pretty lucky with Persona as a series...I bought the RPG inexplicably when I was a teenager and found the whole concept amazingly compelling. It seems to be more stylish and sociologically interesting with every iteration. Kanji's one of the more interesting characters in the series' history thats for sure.

As for the "Mary" character...its possible she's the original catalyst for the original Persona game....which would be cool.

Gamescook said:

I don't think Mary is THAT Mary. They don't look alike at all and the age difference would put Maki at around 30 or so, seeing as how Persona and Persona 2 took place in the mid-to-late 90's.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
