Persona 3 Portable Official Fanbook

– Update –

Not really much to do with the fanbook but…

Just in case anyone’s been wondering why the Japanese gave the P3P Heroine the unofficial name “Hamuko”, Kita-san kindly explained that it maybe because in Atlus’ TGS2009 trailer, they named her as “主人 公子” instead of  “主人公” (which I think is most likely a typo). If you take “公子” then read the “公” as if it’s Katakana, you get “ハム” thus the unofficial name “ハムこ” ^^;

原來日本人叫P3P女主各「Hamuko」是可能因Atlus在某條知片打錯字、打了「主人 公子」.「公」讀成片仮名字就變成「ハム」^^;

– Update –

Well, every Persona fans should know about the fanbooks that get released by now. Despite being the third remake of Persona 3, the PSP Portable version has also been given its own fanbook – With a nice group illustration for the cover too.

You can view Kita-san’s preview of it at his blog. The layout and contents appear to be very similar – Photos used for the background and lots of text only this time, the character profiles are laid out like a blog. Highlights of the 192 page B5 size book are…

  • Concept art including early boxart designs.
  • Musical score sheet of the original P3 opening “Burn My Dread” and ending “Memories of You”.
  • Original short story and comic.
  • Persona Music Live 2009 coverage.
  • Interviews with the directors, sound producer and voice actors.
  • Fold-out poster.

Play-Asia doesn’t seem to stock it at the moment but you can always import from HMV Japan too or if you’re in the UK, try Otaku.co.uk.

As cute as the Heroine is (or MShe, Minako as fans call her), I think one P3 fanbook’s enough for me, though ^^;

So can we expect some P3P drama CDs, Atlus?

ペルソナポータブル3のファンブックが発売中で中身は北さんのブログで見えます。

ヘロインのキャラクターデザインも可愛いですが、P3のファンブック一冊だけで十分かな ^^;

それより、いつドラマCDが制作するだろうね。

P3P也出了一本Fanbook. 内容可在Kita-san的網誌看到. 女主各的設計很可愛但我我一本己經夠 ^^;

不知道何時會出P3P劇場CD.

Persona 3 Portable OST

Wiping All Out
Vocals: Mayumi Fujita, Lotus Juice (Rap)
Lyrics: Lotus Juice

Been a little while but I’m still battling, moving fast
While you’re just prattling no time for me
No tangling, hit you in the spot with no angle and…

I’m not a princess
a lot of anger in it
Not a cutie girlfriend, oh no
Don’t you know?

Flashy rhymes coated with spangles
Add some sounds in it
It times wangles
Three dots connect to rectangles
Just like music sounds connect and rambles

You can not run away
hell nah, no man can run away
from me I stay in your head as
one big threat

It’s demolition
wiping all out
I won’t go, until it’s over

It’s coalition
pieces of wreckage
come to me
and let it be one

和訳

ちょっと久しぶりだが、まだ戦ってる、まだ行動が早い
あなたがまだ考えてる間に私がもう動いた
ゆっくり戦うじゃない、すぐに痛いところへ打つぞ

お姫様何かじゃない
(本当に怒ってるぞ)
可愛い彼女じゃないよ
まだ分からないの?

キラキラな曲がまだ足りない
音を加えよう
もっと楽しくなる
点が四角の間に載せるんだ
音楽のように音が繋がって響いてゆく

逃げられないよ
(ああ、誰も逃げられないさ)
あなたの頭に居て
巨大な脅しになる

破壊
全部破壊
私が行かないよ、全部が破壊されたまで

今はチームワークだよ
そしたら全部の残骸が
こっちへ来て
合わせばいい

中文翻譯

過了多久但我還在戰爭,還動作快
你還在思考中我己動
不要慢慢打,我只打中你死穴…

我不是位公主
(她真不高興)
我不是你可愛的女友
你還未明白?

好像好聽的曲還未夠
再加一些聲音
才孌得更好聽
要加三點在那四角形中
聲音才會連接成音樂

你走不到
(對,设有人走不到)
我會在你心中
變成巨大的威脅

破壞
全部都要破壞
至到完為止,我不走

我們要團結
以後所有残骸
來的時侯
讓它合起來吧

How Much Extra Script Did P3P Get?

Atlus added in enough script for the new Heroine in Persona 3 Portable to fill in four of these books apparently. But just how much of the original game is it equivalent to and how does it compare to other remakes?

And will they be making P3P drama CDs? Might want to keep an eye on the voice actress, Manami Inoue’s blog to find out.

P3P Script Books

On another note, the downloadable (legit) version of P3P for the PSP Go has broken the 10,000 copy mark in Japan so it looks like people don’t really mind not having a physical copy of the game and manual over there.

Persona 3 Portable Review

Atlus has released a second remake of their popular RPG Persona 3.

Dubbed Persona 3 Portable, the game is based on the first remake Persona 3 FES – The Journey, and brings over all the improvements Persona 4 had to the game system  but the biggest change is – Catering for the female fans by bringing in a new Heroine that you can choose to play. So for those of you who played both the original and the first remake on the PS2, is it still worth playing?

For those of you have yet to play Persona 3, the game tells of a group of high school students who have the power to summon beings known as Personas that allow them to fight against some mysterious monsters that appear every midnight, devouring the minds of humans. They don’t know why this “Dark Hour” occurrs and why they’re the only ones that can move during this time but, they intend to find out and believe the tower that appears, “Tartarus” is the key to it all.

Atlus Express Vol. 10 P3P Special

As expected, Atlus Express Vol. 10 talks about P3P due for release next week and answers some of the questions fans have sent in. Most of the article are points we already know but, in addition to the list Azusa Akido mentioned on the official blog, we have the following cleared up…

New Game and Maniac Difficulty

  • No matter which difficulty level you choose, in-game events are unaffected. However, note that choosing the highest difficulty level i.e. Maniac mode  will not count towards your completion count. In other words, you won’t gain access to “New Game+” if you choose it as your first play through and nothing will be inherited.
  • No matter if you choose to play as the Hero or Heroine then switch over for the “New Game+” – Levels, items and equipment will still be inherited.
  • In the Maniac mode, the AI has been improved so that the game won’t be easier just because you can control your entire party this time.

S. Links

  • Akihiko and Shinji are confirmed as S. Links when playing as the Heroine.
  • Tomochika and Rio are childhood friends so if you play both as the Hero and Heroine, you will have a better idea of what Rio’s character is like.
  • You can no longer Reverse your S. Links if you’ve neglected a friend for too long but you can still do so if you make the wrong decisions.
  • The Heroine’s arcana is numbered XXII (22) to show she’s a new character.

Data Install

  • The Data Install feature that speeds up loading times will take up 255MB on your PSP’s Memory Stick. On the other hand, it is recommended you don’t run this feature on the downloaded PSP Go version because it will have the opposite effect and slow down loading times.

Atlus Express Vol. 10

Well, the data install makes sense since the Memory Stick will be slower than the PSP Go’s built-in memory.

Maybe I’ll just play through the Beginner’s difficulty level just to see all the dialogue changes with the Heroine…
