9h ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is out today on PS3 with details below, to quote:

[Register or Login to view links] is the sequel to the fighting game spin-off of the Persona franchise, Persona 4 Arena, but it's so, so much more than just an update.

Characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4 are thrust into a fighting tournament, which continues the story after the conclusion of the RPG Persona 4.

This story is canon for the Persona franchise, and takes place almost immediately after the conclusion of P4A, which itself is just a few weeks after the end of Persona 4.

P4AU picks up where the original Arena game left off, with six new players joining the P-1 Climax tournament. The new characters include Persona 3 and 4 favorites Junpei, Rise, Yukari, and Ken & Koromaru, along with series newcomers Sho Minazuki and Sho Minazuki (it's confusing, I know.. But the story explains it).

There are also three DLC characters: Adachi, Marie, and Margaret - Adachi even has his own story! Story mode is also retooled to be more streamlined for the two major arcs (P3 and P4 story). Plus, in addition to the Adachi story DLC, we're offering the original story as DLC too.
 

Persona 5 and More Confirmed for PlayStation 3 in North America

31w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin confirmed Persona 5 and more titles are coming for PlayStation 3 in North America with details below.

To quote: I've gotten your emails, your tear-stained letters, your carrier pigeons, and the erstwhile smoke signal. We've read them, and we - finally - can fully and officially reply to them with the best kind of confirmation ever: ATLUS is bringing three new Persona games to the PlayStation family starting in fall of 2014.

"But John," you'll ask, "what are these new Persona games of which you speak?" Well, I'm glad you asked that, illusory writing device! Let's just cut right to the quick. Persona 5 is coming. In 2015. And will be the first Persona RPG developed for the PlayStation 3 system.

That's about all we know about the game, because the plot, characters, and everything about it is being kept under wraps. The one thing we do know is that series director Katsura Hashino hinted that the storyline will be about throwing off the chains of oppression to find one's true self. But how that theme is addressed in Persona 5? We have no idea.

Next up, we have the sequel to Persona 4 Arena ญญ- the hit fighting game for PS3. The number "2″ isn't powerful enough for all the awesome new content in this game, so we're calling it Persona 4 Arena...

83w 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- [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], and the recent [Register or Login to view links]- 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...

85w 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...

95w 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, [Register or Login to view links] 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...
