A Look at the Japanese P3P Pre-order Goods and Limited Editions

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, its...

Hilarious P3P Trailer Commentary, Name Those Tracks

It's looking like I'm writing about nothing but P3P on this blog lately but never mind... The female version of "Master of Tartarus" rocks but I still like the male version's style too. As for the S.

P3P Heroine Visits P4's Town Inaba

So, I was partly right that Yuko and Miyamoto were indeed meeting outside a room during their school trip but not in Kyoto - It's in Inaba! By choosing to play as the Heroine, you will visit Inaba two years before Persona 4 and meet Yukiko who is still just a junior high student. This happens late summer during August instead of November...

Speeding Up P3P By Removing the 3D Environments

Susukida who was lead designer for the life sim events that took place in P3 and P4, is partly responsible for the layout and graphical changes in P3P this time.
