Persona PSP Opening

The opening for Atlus’ upcoming remake of Persona is up on their site now so you can hear a bit more of the theme song than what’s available in the sample music section of the site. Wasn’t going to post about it because I’m sure most people who are interested already check the site frequently. Lots of eyes!

I don’t think they’ve revealed who the vocalist is yet but I’m still fairly certain it’s Yumi Kawamura from P3 providing those powerful vocals. Been listening to the samples several times now so can’t wait to hear the full sound track!

Persona PSP OP

I hate to say this but… Ever since the announcement of this remake I feel the revamped music doesn’t quite blend in with the out-dated graphics of the game which is partly the reason why I don’t really want to pre-order this.

The other reason being that I’m not sure how good the game really is. I think Atlus must have saw a cash-in opportunity with the popularity of P3 and P4 to give one of their older games a half proper remake instead of just a port, assuming those fans unfamiliar with past titles will jump right in. I personally would have preferred a full remake and I’m hoping they will create a new original Persona game for the PSP, a modern title I can take around with me.

    No, I haven’t… That’s why I don’t know how good it will be ^^;

    Although from the comments the other readers posted, the original seems to have its fair share of problems…

    There was quite a number of composers but yes, he was one of them. His name appears for 7 tracks on the original 26 track OST. Most iconic would probably be the Velvet Room theme song, “A Poem for Everyone’s Soul”.

    yeah i have always wondered how fun this game was. Persona 2 is good but i don’t know how much P1 is similar to that. I also never really liked the designs for the main characters persona’s in this game

    @patto: You don’t like the desings of Kazuma Kaneko!? D:

    Man, his style is just great in my opinion. But anyway, the overal presentation of the game looks good so far.

    So… yeah, hope the game is any good and sorry for my English i guess?

    Greetings! 🙂

    oh no don’t get me wrong i LOVE his designs. I feel like he didn’t really come into his own until the Persona 2 series though.

    @patto: Oh, I see. 😐 Good to know then.

    And, I understand what you mean about the “he [Kazuma] didn’t really come into his own until the Persona 2 series though”, totally agree with that one.

    PD: Dammit! ‘Overall’ in the previous post went wrong, sorry.

    mmm… what’s the song name? I really like the opening song, but I don’t know name of the song… XO

    It’s called “Dream of Butterfly”. The whole Persona series seems to be based around the Chinese philospher Zhuangzi’s story of the “Butterfly Dream”.
