Atlus Evokes English Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Screens

By Spencer . March 30, 2010 . 8:08am

This batch of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 media has the female version of Orpheus and English text. Story scenes, like the one with Yukari asking if you want to walk home with her, are told in visual novel style with blown up character portraits instead of 3D models. Persona 3 Portable also uses a menu-like interface for the student lounge.

 

New features not seen in these screens are part-time jobs, female protagonist social links, Theodore (the male Velvet room attendant), Dark Hour rescue missions, and Persona 4 style battle control where you give orders to the party.

 

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable is still a season away with a July 6 release date.

    I knew someone in high school named Tess. But what kind of last name is “Ter”?

      The japanese site has a paper doll section that shows all the characters in the various costumes.

    This is day one for me, it will be nice to have a streamlined version especially for those who played it once (ore more).

    This is looking great. Hope TesTer is doing a good job so no bugs bother anyone when it comes out.

    Bah, I’ll be buying it again.

    At least this time my brother can’t bother me, “Hey, the music in this game sucks. Turn it off!” and I can play it without those disturbances.

    Plus, who DOESN’T like Persona, eh? It’ll be good.

    that question is rhetorical, btw :)

      Next time your brother tells you that just say:
      So dance,
      while i put you in a trance!
      It’s part boogie in the body, move that body, move that body!
      Make sure you don’t hurt nobody!
      I said hey hey hey!
