Persona 4 The Golden Leaked Among Other Atlus Titles

Persona 4 The Golden Leaked Among Other Atlus Titles

Seems like Atlus is going to give Persona fans an overdose on titles in the series. The upcoming Famistu issue leaks announcements of quite obvious news to something quite surprising.

Most everyone has seen the recent site from Atlus that invokes feelings of a Persona 4 nature. If the announcements are true, this site will be for the upcoming title Persona 4 The Golden. This port of the PlayStation 2 hit Persona 4 will be remade for Sony’s newest handheld. As with most ports, the Vita-bound title will include some nice features:

  • A new character named Mary
  • 1.5 times the voice of the PS2 version
  • Wireless support for calling on others to help you when you’re about to die in a dungeon.
  • Other elements that fans of the original have heavily requested
  • New opening anime with new song from Shouji Meguro
  • New animation movies

The one title that does come off as a surprise for me is Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. This 2D fighter title will feature characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4 along with a story that takes place two years after the events of the latter title. Teaming up with Arc System Works, Atlus plans to bring the title to arcades in Spring of 2012 followed by PS3 and Xbox 360 releases that Summer.

And finally, news that give all Persona fans hope: Basic preparations for Persona 5 have been completed. It looks like we can expect to see Katsura Hashino as director, Shigenori Soejima as character designer, and Shouji Meguro as main composer for the newest entry in the series. Stay tuned as we keep you up to date on more news about these titles.
