Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is great, also on sale for $20

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth might have arrived in late 2014, but it's often fresh on my mind every time I think about the SMT or Persona franchises. It's a great little 3DS RPG that allows for both Persona 3 and 4 fans to come togeth...

These Persona 4: Dancing All Night remixes are hot!

I'm sure most Atlus fans would agree one of the Persona series' greatest strengths is its music. The studio's in-house composer Shogi Meguro and his crew do brilliant work, which makes the idea of an entire game dedicated to their anthems ...
