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...


PSP Cache Helps with Persona PSP Battle Loading Times

Director Meguro has a sample UMD of the upcoming Persona PSP remake and he reports that the loading time seems to shorten for battle encounters if you have a PSP-2000 or newer. Starting off with 5 seconds for the first battle, the loading time gradually decreases to 2 seconds in later encounters. Most likely because of the cache memory...


Meguro Writes Only A Selection of Tracks Will Be in Persona PSP

In the second entry of his developer's diary, Shoji Meguro describes how he is going about his music composition for the upcoming Persona PSP game. Two of the tracks being available for sampling already. The rearrangements will be based on the pop style he developed from P3 and P4 and, will be trying to match it all with the world...


UK Persona 4 Pre-Orders Get A Free T-shirt

Persona 4 is reaching European shores on March 23th next month and Play.com is offering this exclusive yellow t-shirt if you pre-order with them. It's not the same as the Konami Edition or the US' Social Link Expansion Pack versions but, not too bad eh? Or if you have a contact in Japan, you could always go for some of the other official...


Atlus' Kazuma Kaneko Talks Spiritual World and the Internet

Was dropping by Atlus Net to see if I could find some bits of new info about their games and came across this instead. The artist responsible for all the "Devil" designs in Atlus' MegaTen and Persona series Kazuma Kaneko, writes in his company blog entry fourty-five about his view of the spiritual world (霊界) and how it's like the...


Persona 4 Scarf, Pendant and Jack Frost Mugs

Wouldn't mind wearing this instead of my current scarf but unfortunately, it appears to be unavailable for order currently. I think only people who have played Persona 4 will recognise the pattern while everyone else will just see it as a bright flashy scarf in the streets. The white Jack Frost Mug B and drinking glass set look pretty...


Persona PSP Official Site Open

In case the Persona fans amongst you don't know already, the official website for the PSP remake of Persona Revelations is now open, complete with a video showing off a bit of gameplay footage and the new Anime scenes. The video opens up with a reference to The Butterfly Dream, "One day, I dreamt I became a butterfly." Not looking too bad...

Drop by the site to find the full size images. This one of the beautiful Velvet Room sisters, Margaret and Elizabeth is from the Persona 4 art director Soejima....


The Petition for Persona 5 Begins

Persona 4 came out Friday in the US and Europe will be getting it soon too in Spring so, what better time to talk about Persona 5 now eh? I don't think there's really a need for a P5 petition because I'm sure Atlus will be continuing the series for a long time. I remember seeing a chart where they stated they're increasing their investment in...


Persona 4 Coming to Europe Next Spring

According to Kotaku, Square-Enix will be the ones publishing Persona 4 over here but once again, it doesn't look like we'll be getting any of the goodies the US is getting. I do wonder how many people in Europe are actually interested in the RPG though. When P3 finally got released here, I didn't really see it getting into the top ten at all...
