Persona 4

After raising some ire region locking Persona 4 Arena (one of the only PS3 games that is region locked), Atlus decided that its follow up, set to release in the North and South America this fall, "will not be region locked for the Americas."  So this time around you European folk might consider importing instead of waiting on Atlus for a year to release it in Europe.
Oh, SpacePirate Ridley. You are my hero. This Persona and Seinfeld crossover parody is what dreams are made of, and I can't wait to see more. Taken from the NeoGAF Persona Community Thread, the above still is the result of on...
Here's a look at the slip cover that will adorn the Persona 4 Ultimax Premium Newcomer Package, which comes with the story from the first game so you don't have to go out of your way to catch up (it will also be sold sep...
The best Persona 4 character already got trailered, but I guess Atlus still needs to finish up. This week it's Kanji and Naoto, both with voice actors that are throwing me for a loop. It feels like it should've happened...
When I came back to Persona 4 Arena with the intent of finally learning how to play a fighting game after abandoning it, I switched from Mitsuru to Chie. Because they are the best Persona characters. I lasted a bit longer, but my advancement was thwarted by Shadow Labrys (trailered below) and stupid fingers. 
Persona 4 the Golden Animation gets a new trailer today with subtitles from distributor Aniplex US. It starts out slow, but picks up with a new song and plenty of great things to look at. Too bad there isn't more on the rest...
Show starts in 15 minutes.  Hey, it's live now. And that's not Teddy at all. It's Rise. Still cool. 
I woke up at 4 in the morning, got on a plane, got to LA, and went straight to the press room with my luggage (too early for hotel check in) and then we started covering Microsoft's press conference. Watching this adorable Persona Q trailer was a nice breather. Don't forget to breathe.
I got so excited about Yu's Yul Brynner chest on the Persona 4 Ultimax box art that I almost missed new trailers for Yukiko and Yosuke. I never noticed this, but Yosuke's persona sort of looks like the frog navi the frog reporter uses in Mega Man Battle Network 2. Yeah, I like those games.
This is the official box art for the Japanese release of Persona 4 Ultimax. It's pretty great, even with the best characters (Mitsuru and Chie) getting teeny billing. That Yul Brynner chest pose though.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is out. In Japan. There is a lot of text to be translated before we get it this fall, as you can see for yourself. So the game opens with a decision. Great. Not paralyzing at all. To go the...
No spoilers! Tohru Adachi, Persona 4's assistant detective and comic relief, makes his way to Persona 4 Arena Ultimax's roster as DLC that will be bundled with first-run copies of the game in Japan, according to the latest Famitsu. Gematsu says that he has his own Persona (Magatsu Izanagi) and will have his own story. Seriously, no spoilers!
European Atlus fans are rarely short on reasons to be upset. And today will be no different, as Persona 4 Arena has been unceremoniously pulled from the territory's PlayStation Store, according to Sony's Jawad Ashraf. &l...

And doesn't have a picture to show for it. Damn. I need to see this design. Atlus has confirmed a 3DS XL bundle (for Japan) for when Persona Q drops on June 5 (in Japan). In a typically nice Atlus move, first print copies of ...
While we were beary excited to bring you Teddie and Aigis' Persona Q trailers last week, we totally whiffed on Junpei and Yukari. We've got to show Persona 3 some love. I'm more excited for both of their entrances into Persona 4 Arena, but seeing Junpei get slapped and Yukari's cute little cherub bow (below) is nice.
Is Aigis not doing the stilted robotic voice because of where Persona Q falls in the timeline, or did the Japanese voice actor never do it? Because that was a bothersome element to Aigis' character for me. Not as annoying as...
It's a good day when I can just sit and write several articles about Persona. The last bit of the lengthy interview with Katsura Hashino, following talk on Persona 5, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, and Persona 4: The Ultimax U...
I'm still not convinced I like the 3DS chibi Persona 3 and Persona 4 spin-off, Persona Q. Giving me more Mitsuru-senpai is a good way to convince me, though. It seems like all the characters will be getting videos as Atlus's YouTube drowns us in Persona Q videos. I could think of worse things to drown in. Like fire. Or pizza rolls. Or syrup. Most things, really.  
We're still far away from the release of Persona 3 and Persona 4 dungeon crawling mash-up Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, but it's never to early to start lusting. Just by looking at the first screenshots I knew this game...

Let me preface this article by stating a few simple facts. I am a young, white, American male who consumes vast amounts of pornography. As such, I am occasionally drawn to depictions of the female form which are perhaps outsi...
As I was knee deep in the glorious Persona 4: Golden, something curious happened. A heavy 50 hours into the game after something resembling a climax, the game ended. It was an ending that felt hollow, strangely devoid of reso...
