Persona 4 got a facelift during its transition from PlayStation 2 to PlayStation Vita. Famitsu said if you make a side by side comparison you will be able to notice the difference immediately, so we made one.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PS2 above) – Persona 4: The Golden (Vita below)
Persona 4: The Golden looks like it has further draw distance and you can see the mountains now. Famitsu says you can see what’s on bulletin boards now and hints if you look at posters inside the Dojima residence you may see something new.
Famitsu also reveals Marie, a new character introduced in Persona 4: The Golden, has a social link tied to the "Eternal" arcana. Persona 4: The Golden will also have new personas for the protagonist like Lakshmi who is tied to the Eternal arcana. Lakshimi has Bufudyne and Mabufudyne as skills plus nullifies light/ice, but is weak against fire. You can also walk around town at night and may meet other characters on a night stroll.
Persona 4: The Golden comes out on June 14 in Japan.
