Atlus' Great News for Persona Fans

Andriasang reports some excellent news for Persona fans straight from this week's Famitsu magazine in Japan: three new Persona titles. Sort of.

The first game, dubbed Persona 4 The Golden, is a remake of the excellent PlayStation 2 RPG for PlayStation Vita. The new version will include a new character called Mary; much more voice acting than the PS2 version; wireless support to enable other players to help you if you're struggling with a dungeon; new movie sequences including a new opening anime; and some non-specific other features that fans have apparently "heavily requested." It's set to hit Vita (in Japan, presumably) in the spring of next year.

The second game is something of a curveball. Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena is a 2D fighter from Arc System Works (of BlazBlue fame) that will release first in arcades next spring and then on PS3/360 in the summer. Characters from both Persona 3 and 4 will make an appearance in a new story set two months after the events of Persona 4.

Finally, Atlus has confirmed that it's working on Persona 5. Development has not yet begun in earnest, but the usual team will be working on the new title -- that's Katsura Hashino as director, Shigenori Soejima on character design duties and Shoji Meguro as music composer. Expect plenty of enjoyably funky J-pop-rap-fusion nonsense on the soundtrack, then.
