Atlus Confirms Back Into The TV: Persona 4 Arena on PSN Tomorrow

50°
79w ago - Atlus Project Lead Yu Namba has confirmed today that Back Into The TV: Persona 4 Arena hits PSN tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello Persona fans and fighting game fans!

We're excited to announce that Persona 4 Arena, which earned the honor of "Best Fighting Game" at the [Register or Login to view links], is going to be available for digital purchase and download on the PlayStation Network tomorrow.

Some of you may not be familiar with Persona 4 Arena, or the Persona series. You may, however, be aware that ATLUS launched [Register or Login to view links] for PS Vita last November to critical acclaim, and this title helped generate a great deal of interest for the Persona series.

Yes, Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game - but who says fighting games can't have a story? Fans that got a taste of the series through Persona 4 Golden can enjoy a whole new story arc in Persona 4 Arena.

The game takes place two months after the protagonist of Persona 4 Golden - given the name Yu Narukami - leaves the rural town of Inaba. Rumor of a fighting tournament TV...
 

Atlus: Download Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 on PSN Tuesday

250°
85w ago - Atlus Editor Nich Maragos has invited fans to download Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 on PSN this coming Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: A lot of unusual things go on here at ATLUS, and as a publisher known for delivering great JRPG content, Demon's Souls represented something unique even for us: runaway mainstream success.

In the years since its release, Demon's Souls went far above and beyond our usual humble offerings, partly because it's such a special game. It's a Japanese-developed RPG, made by From Software, but it has a distinctly Western look and feel in the weight of its movements and the ruthlessness of its enemies and environments.

It's a single-player title, but it has a strong online component unlike anything that came before it, where you can summon other players as friendly ghosts to give you a hand, or be invaded by hostile marauders without warning.

Its unsparing difficulty seemed to mark it as destined to be appreciated only by a select few, yet it's been universally lauded (and awarded Game of the Year by a few, including GameSpot) and remains our highest-selling title ever.

As a thank you to the fans who have supported it this far and kept the servers burning, we're excited to announce that Demon's Souls will...
 

Atlus: A Beginner's Guide to Persona 4: Golden - Out Next Week

50°
92w ago - Atlus Lead Editor Mike Meeker has posted up a beginner's guide to Persona 4: Golden today, which is due out next week in stores and on PSN.

Below are the details, as follows: Greetings, readers and [Register or Login to view links] fans!

I'm aware that some PlayStation RPG fans still haven't heard of Persona 4 Golden, the latest in ATLUS' best-selling Persona series, which hits North American store shelves and PlayStation Network on November 20th.

So what is Persona? Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is Metacritic's PlayStation 2 Game of the Year for 2008. Persona 4 places you in the shoes of a high school student who needs to strike a balance between school, a social life, learning more about his family, and, as it happens, investigating a series of gruesome murders that may or may not involve a psychedelic world that lies behind the screen of every television in town. Whether beating up Shadows or tackling schoolwork, the choices you make will come to affect how others see you, and how you see yourself.

In both Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden, you play as transfer student (insert name here) who moves to the sleepy country burg of Inaba. When you arrive, things quickly take a turn for the weird when you learn of a series of murders taking place in the town. You decide to...
 

Persona 4 Golden is Set for November 20th on PlayStation Vita

50°
100w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that Persona 4 Golden is set for November 20th on the PlayStation Vita handheld gaming console.

To quote: Persona 4 Golden, Japan's BEST SELLING PS Vita game of ALL darn-tootin' time, finally has a North American release date: November 20, 2012, in stores and via PlayStation Store.

Did you hear that? That's the sound of millions of Vita owners screaming in joyous union. They know, as you might too (or will soon learn), that when it comes to a deep role-playing game experience with TONS of monsters to slay; Personas to collect and fuse; areas to explore; well-written characters with which to interact and develop bonds; and a terrific, highly memorable story, there is NO substitute.

A random short list of enhancements and additions (in no particular order) we've only lightly touched on:

•You can now sneak out at night when your uncle Dojima is out at work (which is frequent, as he's a veteran police detective). Every conversation and event discovered during this time - heck, even the music that plays - is all new. Moreover, many areas, like Shiroku store in the shopping district, serve a different purpose after dark.

•You can get night jobs, on top of the clubs you might join...
 

Atlus Unveils Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium PS Vita Edition

50°
104w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has officially unveiled the Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium Edition today for PlayStation Vita fans.

To quote: Persona 4 Golden. It's so hot right now. It's Japan's hottest PS Vita game of all time, selling more than twice as many units as the next bestselling title.

In the weeks following P4G's release, PS Vita hardware sales in Japan saw a dramatic spike, larger than at any time since the start of the year.

Perhaps it's because the original Persona 4 became such a phenomenon, winning tremendous critical acclaim and adoration from consumers. It could also be because Golden, the enhanced and expanded PS Vita version of the game, dramatically improves on the beloved RPG classic in so many gosh darn ways.

Did you know I speak PS Vita? True story. I can hear yours from here, musing aloud, longing for something amazing; it's practically begging to be loved. It wants copious oodles of Persona and it wants said oodles right now.

It wants 100+ hours of interacting with fleshed out, sharply written characters. It yearns for a rich world to get lost in, for intense battles, for blazing fast load times. Translation: your PS Vita has a fever, and the only prescription, is more Persona 4 Golden.
