Confirmed: Atlus USA to localize Persona 4: The Golden


5:00 AM on 05.02.2012



[Update: It seems a typo on the game's teaser site was leading some fans to think the game was also bound for PS3/Xbox 360 and/or Kinect. That is NOT the case, according to Atlus PR Manager Aram Jabbari. "Silliness," he called it.]

Finally, the news most folks practically knew was coming but wanted to hear announced anyway has been outed: Atlus USA has officially confirmed a North American release of Persona 4: The Golden, the PS Vita remake of the PlayStation 2 RPG powerhouse. It'll come with 50% more voice acting, a new character, new personas, events, animated cutscenes, music, battle features, an "online rescue" system, and remastered visuals.

Though the game is coming out in Japan in mid-June, the Atlus newsletter suggests a "Fall 2012" date for the North American version. 

All that's left is for Atlus USA to confirm, say, the PSP remake of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, and the entirePersona series will finally be available on contemporary portable platforms.

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.more
