In Persona 3 Portable you play the part of an orphan who is returning to his home town for the first time in many years to attend high school. As you travel between the train station and the dorms you are horrified at the sinister change that affects the town.
Upon your arrival at the dorm things only get weirder, as a strange boy offers you a contract to sign before you meet the first of the other inhabitants of the dorm - two girls - one of whom appears to be holding a gun. Not only that, but neither of them appear to be aware of the strange boy's existence.
From this beginning Persona 3 Portable creates a strange unsettling atmosphere and as the game...
133w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a video trailer that Lost Persona Chapter Persona 2: Innocent Sin is hitting Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We're willing to guess that until someone finally dares to make The Adventures of Methuselah Jones, it'll be hard to find a game that's been anticipated by fans for over a decade.
That's right, back in 1999–in between all those exciting millennium parties, of course–a new chapter in the acclaimed Persona series of roleplaying games came out in Japan and was ultimately never published in North America. This "lost" chapter, long anticipated by fans of Atlus, the series, and RPGs in general, is extremely overdue.
Apart from one other game coming out this year that has teased and tortured its fanbase for a similarly agonizing stretch of time (you know, the one that wants bubble gum but is out of it), there really isn't much else out there that fans have been waiting as long for.
Which is why we're so excited to announce that the wait is nearly over. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin, or rather, an enhanced version of it for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, is finally coming to North America!
137w ago - Today Ghostlight Community Manager Ross Brierley has made available a video spotlighting Persona 3 Portable, which is coming to PSP consoles in Europe on April 29, 2011.
To quote: I am very excited to announce the upcoming release of Persona 3 Portable, the excellent PSP version of the critically acclaimed and award winning JRPG.
From the opening cut scene, Persona 3 Portable draws you into its unsettling world allowing you to explore the deep contrast between your character's everyday school life and the mysterious Dark Hour, a time hidden between one day and the next where terrible creatures lurk.
As a member of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad, you have the ability to cross over to the Dark Hour where you can wield a special innate power - your Persona. When the Dark Hour comes, reality crumbles away.
Your school mutates into a sinister and perilous tower known as Tartarus and the people around you transmogrify into coffins whilst the evil Shadow creatures prey on those who wander unsuspectingly into their realm. Using the powers of your Persona, it is your sole aim to root out the cause of the Dark Hour and protect all humanity from certain doom.
186w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has unveiled the full Persona 3 Portable trailer video for Sony's PSP.
To quote: I come bearing gifts, and by "gifts" I of course mean the official full trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable, Atlus's upcoming handheld RPG epic.
What's it full of? Why, WIN, of course, and lots of it! What other portable roleplaying game gives you dozens upon dozens upon dozens of hours of satisfying combat, character interaction, side-quests, and a riveting story?
Moreover, few handheld RPGs, if any, deliver the aural and visual impact of Persona 3 Portable, with its stunning world and character design, and a soundtrack courtesy of master composer Shoji Meguro.
For those of you who've never been properly exposed to Persona 3, allow me to pull back its long black trench coat to reveal a bit more about the concept of the Dark Hour. In the world of Persona 3 Portable, there is a hidden hour between the end of one day and the start of another.
It is imperceptible to most, save a select few. You're one of this gifted minority (of course you are) and in fact,...
189w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has revealed a bonus for those who are planning to pre-order Persona 3 Portable for Sony's PSP console.
To quote: We would like to bring to your attention the below pre-order bonus for Persona 3 Portable (only at participating retailers, only while supplies last)
"What is it?" you ask? Why, it's a lovely collectible (and wearable, fortunately) cap modeled after the one worn by popular character Junpei Iori, Gekkoukan High School's bantering, jabbering class clown.
Not familiar with him? Or the game, perhaps? That's where this post comes in.
Persona 3's unique dichotomy of social sim and dungeon crawling elements shakes the genre to its core, offering a constantly refreshing blend of character development, sharp writing, a powerful narrative, and ultra fast-paced turn-based combat in the many varying levels of Tartarus.
In an interesting twist, the bonds you share with your...
