There's only a week left until Persona 3 Portable goes on sale in Japan and it's managed to get a Famitsu score of 8/8/8/8 (32/40) which is just one point short of the original PS2 game which got 9/8/8/8 (33/40). I don't know the details since I don't have access to better shots of the reviews but according to 1up.com's translations, it's fairly much the same story wise while the major changes take place with the S. Links.
Anyway, since Atlus doesn't have its own pre-order goods or limited edition as usual, I thought we would take a look at what the shops have to offer to draw in the customers...
Now we know why Junpei was red in the face and speechless in Tartarus - Mitsuru looks quite stunning in that new high leg "armour", doesn't she?
And moving on, Tsutaya is offering ring tones while WonderGoo on the other hand offers a mini cushion featuring Aegis and a pencil board to place your paper on when writing or sketching.
We've seen the deluxe pack that Ebten is offering but, importers and Japanese gamers have another choice from the Gamers store who are offering a pair of Panasonic branded red earphones. They kind of resemble the Persona 3 Konami Style LE that was available when the PS2 version of the game came out.
Specs and build quality of the earphones unknown although I wouldn't be interested anyway since I'm satisfied with the Sony MDR-EX500LP earphones ^^;
So if you had the choice here, which of the goods would you go for? Personally, I think I would go for those bookmarks although I'm not sure if it's one randomly selected or the full set...
Will be interesting to see if the NA version gets another free soundtrack disc or not!
And thought I'd just post this parody about the Heroine's S. Links I came across on the English Atlus forum. Not sure who drew it but the art's good and it looks like she's not getting a lot of good regular dates ^^;
