We knew it was coming. There was no way that Atlus USA was going to pass on the sexy PSP port of the PS1 classic RPG Persona.
A press release from Atlus says that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for the PSP is coming to North America within the calendar year, which they later clarify as fall. They're calling this one a "relaunch" of their popular series, "featuring a completely redone localization and content never before seen in North America." There's also some game play enhancements and new additions hinted at. I can't wait!
Add this to the big PSP announcements listed earlier today, and it looks like Sony's portable is going to have a solid year this year.
We've got more Persona trailers here.
