12w ago - Atlus Editor Nich Maragos has announced that Persona 2: Eternal Punishment hits PSN tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: If you're a die-hard Persona fan, there's a good chance you have every game in the series- Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 3 Portable, and the recent Persona 4 Golden- playable on PS Vita... except one. Persona 2 was split into two games - Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment - the former of which came out on PSP in 2011 and the latter having had no American release.
There's good news and bad news about that. The bad news is that unusual circumstances have prevented us from localizing Eternal Punishment PSP the way we'd have liked to, but the good news is that you can still find out how the story of Tatsuya...
14w 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 Spike Video Game Awards, 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 Persona 4 Golden 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...
24w ago - Atlus Marketing Manager Robyn Mukai has proclaimed that Persona 4 Golden is PS Vita's top-rated game today and shared a video trailer below.
To quote: It goes without saying that PlayStation.Blog readers are the some of the savviest, most informed gamers out there. So it almost seems silly to tell you that since its launch on November 20th, Persona 4 Golden has held the honor of being the highest-rated PS Vita title ever according to Metacritic and Gamerankings. Are you surprised?
Of course not, because you know P4G's immersive 100+ hour adventure backwards and forwards. You know the grounded, relatable characters that are at turns emotional, then hilarious. (Trial of the Dragon, anyone?) You're more than proficient at finding, fusing, and customizing all the best, strongest Personas to handle Kanji's steamy bathhouse boss battle.
You've memorized the list of upgrades and new content that have helped bring Persona 4 Golden to even greater heights of critical success than the beloved PlayStation 2 version it's based on. We know you know all this and so have no desire to pump this blog post full of extraneous information.
HOWEVER, as you may have a few less sophisticated...
27w 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 ATLUS 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...
29w ago - Today Atlus Manager of PR and Sales Aram Jabbari has shared a video guide spotlighting the application of their Persona 4 Golden PS Vita Skin below.
To quote: Did you know that Persona 4 Golden is only 18 days away? That's 432 hours. 25,920 minutes. 1,555,200 seconds. THAT'S PRACTICALLY NOW, FRIENDS.
Seeing as how P4G's unique blend of social-life-developing and evil-shadow-defeating roleplaying gameplay is a must-own for PS Vita owners (YEAH, I SAID IT), and it's arguably reason enough for those pained on-the-fencers (Seriously, it must be getting super uncomfortable by now.
We have soothing balm on the PS Vita side, come join us...) to hop off already and snag themselves a sexy new PS Vita, we figured why not pimp out the special pre-order bonus PS Vita skin while we're at it?
Oh, you haven't heard of the pre-order bonus? Well, that's quite a pity, because while supplies last, folks who pre-order Persona 4 Golden from participating retailers will receive a DezaEgg protective skin for PlayStation Vita.
Yes, the same DezaEgg skin that's also included in the completely awesome, completely sold out Solid Gold Premium Edition of the game, which also includes a custom HORI Hard Pouch, HORI Face Cover, and a set of nifty stickers....
