Atlus made good on their tease, and they kicked my ass in the process. We've got two amazing Persona announcements here. First up is Persona 4 The Golden, a port of Persona 4 for the PS Vita. This enhanced edition will include a new character named Mary, some form of wireless multi-player support, more voice acting, all new animations, and more. Remember how we first met Catherine's leading man Vincent in Persona 3 Portable? I'm hoping we get something similar to that in Persona 4 The Golden, set for release next Spring.

Also coming next Spring, this time to Japanese arcades, is Persona 4 The Ultimate In Mayonaka Arena. This 2D fighter is the result of a unique team up between Atlus and BlazBlue developer Arc Systems Works. The game will feature characters from Persona 3 and 4, and will hit come to Xbox 360 and PS3 in Summer 2012.

I'm really hoping these two games help the Persona series to find a new audience. Not everyone has time for a +100 hour RPG, but as I found with Persona 3 Portable, it's a lot easier to make that kind of commitment on a handheld. It's even easier to make the commitment to a fighting game, which are almost always playable in short bursts.

Honestly, I just can't wait to see the incredibly well designed Persona characters (and their semi-demonic alter egos) in a 2D fighter. It's going to be glorious.
