Famitsu has finally revealed the nature of Atlus’ mysterious new teaser site. Persona fans saw it coming, but this is news to the rest of the world: Persona 4 will be ported to the Vita as Persona 4: The Golden and make use of the Vita’s wireless capabilities, offering multiplayer support. Close to death? Summon a friend to save you. Your JRPG just got a little more social.
The port will include brand new anime cut scenes, 1.5 times more voice overs, a new character known as “Marie,” new soundtrack, new opening move, and a yet-to-be-revealed feature.
According to Famitsu, this mystery addition is something fans have requested, but I’m drawing a blank. Perhaps they’ll go the way of Persona 3 Portable and give us a female main character? Yeah, that would be sweet. Keep your eyes on the Tokyo Game Show for upcoming details.
