ESRB says Persona 4 coming to the PlayStation 3 photo



[Update: Atlus has confirmed the news and Persona 4 will be heading to the PS3 as a PS2 Classic. Find out when and how much here.]

Oh no naughty naughty ESRB! You've let slip up another release before the publisher was ready to say something about it.

In this case it's for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, heading to the PlayStation 3. Best guess it's a PS2 classic deal here. Best case it's Persona 4 Golden that's going to get ported over to the PS3 from the Vita.

We've reached out to Atlus asking what's up and we'll let you know if we hear anything about it. Otherwise here's the ESRB listing:

http://www.destructoid.com/persona-4-heading-to-the-ps3-on-april-8-for-9-99-272856.phtml

This is a role-playing game in which players control a high school student who enters a mystical 'TV World, ' saves lost souls who are trapped on the 'Midnight Channel,' and establishes bonds with town characters in order to develop 'Personas.' Personas, which are summoned through the use of tarot cards, are creatures that can perform special offensive and defensive moves to aid during battles against monsters. Combat is turn-based with numeric values and light effects indicating attack/damage inflicted. Pixilated blood spray is briefly depicted during battles, and colored bloodstains stain some walls and floors. Some female monsters (female Persona) are depicted with their breasts exposed, while other monsters have phallic-shaped heads and torsos. Other female Personas (e.g., 'Succubus') have sexual characteristics that are described in text: 'They visit sleeping men and have sexual intercourse with them.' Story elements also make references to alcohol, including a long scene in which the main characters hang out in a club and play 'drinking games.' Although alcohol is never consumed, the characters display the telltale signs of intoxication: slurred speech, staggered walking, and red faces. Profanity (e.g., sh*t, a*shole) can be heard in the dialogue.
