From Gematsu/Sal Romano

Presona 4 will see a re-release three years after its original launch. This time, it’s coming to PlayStation Vita.

Persona 4: The Golden is an enhanced port for Sony’s new handheld, adding new characters, movie events, animated scenes, and more. It will include 1.5 times the amount of voice-overs seen in the PS2 version. Marie, voiced by Kana Hanazawa, is one of the new characters.

Out in Japan in spring 2012, it will utilize the “communications capabilities” of PlayStation Vita.

Thanks, Sinobi
There's also a Persona 4 fighting game from Atlus and Arc System Works for 360/PS3/Arcade Machines.

This week's Famitsu has some major Persona announcements.

First, the game everyone was expected, a remake of Persona 4. Atlus is bringing the PlayStation 2 title to PlayStation Vita as Persona 4 The Golden. This new version adds a number of new features:

-A new character named Mary
-1.5 times the voice of the PS2 version
-Wireless support for calling on others to help you when you're about to die in a dungeon.
-Other elements that fans of the original requested
-New opening anime with new song from Shouji Meguro
-New animation movies


A release is set for Spring 2012.

A bit more surprising is Persona 4 The Ultimate In Mayonaka Arena. Atlus is teaming up with Arc System Works for a 2D fighter that will be released first for arcades in Spring 2012, then for PS3 and Xbox 360 in Summer 2012. The game is being developed by the BlazBlue team.

The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena has a new story that takes place two yeas after the events of Persona 4. Characters from Persona 4 and Persona 3 will feature in the game.


Famitsu also has a few preliminary details on the next numbered entry in the series, Persona 5. Basic preparations for the game's development have been completed, with the usual staff members in place. That includes Katsura Hashino as director, Shigenori Soejima as character designer, and Shouji Meguro as main composer.

Atlus lied. They said there would not be a "Fes"- like re-release.

I guess this is different obviously, but I took that as menaing there would be no re-release.

People were expecting it to be on the PSP? The Vita is gonna need hit games in the launch window to keep going.
People expected it to be on 3DS actually.

Now if Eternal Punishment gets a PSP release then every Persona game will be playable on the Vita.

This just made the Vita into my Persona playing machine.

Since it's just a port with some new content.....eh. I'll still hold off for something to buy a Vita for.

Hopefully with a nice twist like P3P.

Female MC, please.

GIRL POWA!
This, I would buy it regardless, but having a female lead adds so much to the game :D

P5 better have a female option when it is first released.

Welp, the Vita just won the handheld wars. This says p. much everything you need to know about how far devs are willing to go to support the system.

Also picking up a Vita day one now, thanks a lot Atlus :mad:
