p4g_boxart_promouse_rpThe PlayStation Vita version of Persona 4 is coming to North America and its release isn’t too far away from the Japanese version. Persona 4: Golden will be available this fall.

 

Atlus upgraded Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 with a bunch of features such as:

    any word if itll include the japanese audio?

    • http://twitter.com/Kazooragi IS | 桂木

      When has Atlus done that for a Persona game? :s

    • epy

      Extremely unlikely, unfortunately.

      • raymk

        That’s not unfortunate at all, if you people want the jp voices import the damn game and learn japanese.

        • epy

          Wow, I have some GameFAQs in my Siliconera. I’d understand if I was bashing the english voices but is wanting a dual audio OPTION (that most likely will not happen) that offensive to you? Read your comment and think of how you sound.

    • Domii

      Who cares! The voice acting for most Atlus games are always top notch.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    Awesome. Expecting Soul Hacker, Etrian Odyssey and Eternal Punishment to be announced for NA soon. I’m greedy.

    • Barrylocke89

      Hopefully we’ll hear about that during E3.

  • Zonic505

    Glad to finally hear we’re getting an US release. Though I can’t help but wonder if Teddie’s (& Chie’s) new voice in P4 Arena will also be in P4 Golden.

    Either way, cannot wait to get this.

  • RmanX1000

    YES. YES. Congrats Sony. You have now made one VITA sale because of this amazing piece of 3rd party support. Day 1 buy.

    • Domii

      I second that.

  • finalheart9323

    Happy it’s coming out. 
    I wish the Vita had more (J)rpg’s (Disgaea 3 isn’t enough) then i would get this.
    I won’t buy a Vita for just one game. Hopefully when it comes it comes out more rpg’s are out too. Then i can get it.

    • RmanX1000

      FFX is getting a remake. Granted theres no info besides ‘Its happening’ and ‘Its a straight up remaster. And not a simple port.’

    • SlashZaku

      Would be nice to see a Valkyria Chronicles announced for it or Sony putting the Jeanne D’arc/Rogue Galaxy/Dark Cloud IPs to use and getting Level-5 to make a new installment on it.  Or a new Legend of Dragoon.  At least give some of those IPs they’re sitting on a home on the Vita.

    • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

      I think there will be a lot of JRPG for Vita. The problem is will they get localized?

  • Champ W

    Ahem, let me first apologize for what I am going to type next.

    OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! IT’SSSSSS FINALLY HEREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! +[]+

    I hope that it haves the old Teddie voice actor….

    • Haohmaru HL

      well his original voice in the japanese game is usopp from one piece and L from death note, how come someone can play with english dub i don’t even..

      • cj_iwakura

        Kanji. That’s why.

        • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

          Troy Baker is so awesome!!!

          • Quinton Rivera

            Had the chance to meet him last year. He signed my copies of Catherine and Disgaea 4. He is a wonderful person and is an absolute joy to be around.

          • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

            Wow that’s so awesome. I’ve only be able to watch him of youtube. He’s so funny and cool.

        • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

          … but both Kanjis are good. 8) I can’t even decide which I like better, I just want to see every scene with him in both languages at the same time whenever I play the game. :>

      • XiaomuArisu

        Complaining about a WONDERFULL english dub and wanting the jp dub even if you wont understand it?
        I mean sure the original VA are good,but I dont think we can complain about the english ones.

      • Hraesvelgr

        Do we really need to have more comments saying “why do people play it in English”? I mean, frankly, I can’t comprehend how anyone could want to play it in Japanese because of Rise, but I don’t bring it up every single time something related to the game is posted.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          I can tell you why but it involves a word that I dislike to use.

        • ToshiChan

           ota-nvm

        • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

          Uh yeaah, Rise’s JP voice…

          I’ve gotta admit though that I prefer the Japanese voices of the other girls, especially Naoto’s, as I really enjoy Romi Paku’s voice A LOT, as for the males.. I like them all in each language. 8)

          • Hraesvelgr

            I have nothing against the rest of the Japanese cast (well, not a huge fan of Teddie, maybe), but JP Rise is eardrum piercing at times, which is pretty typical of her VA.

        • HeatPhoenix

          Because it’s the original? It was how the director of the game wanted the voices to be like, his guidance is in their performance, not the English dub, however “good” you might think it is (spoilers: it’s not).

    • RmanX1000

      Pardon my rudeness but GET BENT!

  • MrRobbyM

    The screenshots are to colorful and vivid *_*

  • Domii

    About damn time!!! See that’s why I f*cking love Atlus. They have the balls to give us Japanese games lovers what we want, instead of other Jap companies who think localizing a game would mean the end of the world. Atlus are the best role models of today’s gaming.

    • Auragar

      I gotta say I love Atlus too xD and they do do a good job.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    hmmmm goood….. goooooooood indeed

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=749504598 Shane Guidaboni

    First I’ll buy this game, then I’ll get a Vita when there’s a price drop.

  • JMaster3000

    No love for Europe??

    • Hraesvelgr

      Atlus USA doesn’t release games in Europe, no. I guess they could do a digital release of it, but I’m sure a Euro publisher will grab it.

    • RmanX1000

      Square Enix usually handles ATLUS’ European releases. If i recall, the original P4 was published by SE in Europe. So look to them for that.

      • JMaster3000

        They just released P4 all other games released Ghostlight

    • SetzerGabbiani

      Ghostlight will likely do it, and it will be based off of Atlus USA’s localization.

      • JMaster3000

        Yeah but they are slow -__-

  • JMaster3000

    No Love for Europe??

    • XiaomuArisu

       We got P3,P3FES,P3P,P4 and will get P4U.
      The possibility is there that Atlus or Ghostlight will bring it to europe.
      If not import it the Vita is region free.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/Juddgment Judgment8

        I’d say we’re pretty darn safe with Ghostlight. They are just awesome when it comes to Persona games >_>

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

          Plus Vita is region free

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Farid-Belkacemi/1073052585 Farid Belkacemi

    Dual audio = day one :) If not, I already have the PS2 version.

    • raymk

      There is no dual audio and I don’t understand why you people continue to expect it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Farid-Belkacemi/1073052585 Farid Belkacemi

        Because we’re in… 2012 ? The end is near ! :p

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

          If we don’t voice our opinions then Atlus will continue their plan with English only [even though everyone is Japanese in this game] and say that they didn’t  think anyone wanted Japanese audio.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Farid-Belkacemi/1073052585 Farid Belkacemi

            True, and the Japanese dub is clearly better so why not ? :)

  • http://ikari-the-angry-angel.tumblr.com/ The Angry, Random One

    This girl writing this comment is very happy to hear this.

  • Hraesvelgr

    This is cool and all, but still not enough to make me buy a Vita, even if they price drop it. I guess I’ll just support the game when it’s released and see if anything else comes along for it.

    • SerendipityX

      I feel the same. I really like some of games coming for Vita but just like with the PSP I probably won’t pick up it till later. I’m really hoping Sony had something up their sleeves to entice me but so far no dice. :/

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000147755574 Marcos Karal

       It will probably be available digitally, so no need to rush

    • raymk

      What about gravity rush?  then again I don’t know what type of games you play so that could say a lot.  Maybe if they released the tales of innocence on vita then maybe you’d be on board. 

      • Hraesvelgr

         Gravity Rush seems pretty good, but it’s not really enough to make me want a Vita. The only game that I really want on the Vita so far is Ys IV, and we haven’t heard much about that, so I doubt it’ll be coming along too soon.

        As for Tales of Innocence, I didn’t like it much on the DS, so that’s not much incentive for buying a Vita, either.

  • http://twitter.com/Metalsnakezero Metalsnakezero

    Yes, yes, and yes! They’ll probably redub CHie and Teddie due to what they are doing with them in Arena but it F-ing P4 but better!

  • http://twitter.com/Shadow_man19 Shadowman

    Well I’m getting a vita just to play this game and that is all.

    So is anybody happy about the big announcement? 

    • raymk

      Why don’t you want to get gravity rush along side it?  Gravity rush is still the better game here since its actually new.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Roberto-Armando-Iraheta/775564143 Roberto Armando Iraheta

    Makes me wonder if they’ll going to completely redo Chie and Teddie with all the new voicework being added in. Other than that I’m pretty pumped to play this again.

    Will borrow this game /w PSV from a friend,who will buy it(sadly,i don’t have PSV,only PSP).

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

        I really do hope that was just sarcasm. The voices sound so force even with all the Japanese names of those monsters.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           You may need to see what ‘forced’ voice acting is then but sorry its not godlike like you all see to thing JP acting always is.

    • TheSquishyTanker

      No emotion?
      You obviously haven’t gotten the true ending, then. Or even played the second half of the game.

    • SuigetsuHiramura

      The Persona 4 english dub is one of the best around~ if you’re so hell bent on insulting a dub, choose one that actually deserves it. Sure, it’s a nice sentiment having the original Japanese voices in a game, but they are not necessary to enjoy it. Voice-acting should be the last thing on people’s mind when it comes to games of superb quality like Persona 4.

      • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

        Seriously, if people want to bash English dubs, they’d choose one that deserves it. Like the toe curling dub of Arc Rise Fantasia. 

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Farid-Belkacemi/1073052585 Farid Belkacemi

          No hard feelings guys but I put ARF, Tales of Graces and Persona 3/4 in the same bag : the Japanese track is needed on this kind of games (“anime” RPG I would say). Good for you if you like it, I clearly hate it :p That’s the worst part of these games period.

  • http://twitter.com/NintyBound Ninten

    Eh, I’m quite happy with my original copy of P4.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    Here we go with English voice hate again.

    • http://twitter.com/GODDUKEMONEXA GODDUKEMONEXA

      ive remember perfectly an example NAMCO in 2004 with ACE COMBAT 5, english text and japanese and english voices! even final fantasy US games have a great cast, but atlus know it, his games are terrible with english voices specially PERSONA saga, why???????? because their games are full of JAPANESE CULTURE and FOLKLORE, so with the power of psvita will be easy input a japanese voices with english text

      • icecoffemix

        Maybe easy, but definitely not cheap.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/ArcadeInfinity scott

         Ace Combat 5 isnt a good example because the original dialog and lip sync was to the english voice cast. Japanese was added later, and it wasnt even that good.

      • raymk

        Has nothing to do with easy its a matter of cost.

      • SuigetsuHiramura

        I could say something about the irony of your dislike of English dubs and your poor grammar, but I honestly don’t want to offend you in any way~
        Let me just say this: to each their own. If you love the Japanese voices, then import a Japanese copy of the game. It’s that simple. There is no reason to insult a dub that many people enjoy. That, among other things, causes arguments. And frankly I’m tired of this particular argument.

        • cj_iwakura

          It’s very likely English is not that person’s native language.

          • SuigetsuHiramura

            Which is why I held back on any sort of offending comment. Forgive me if that sounds kind of snarky~ I didn’t have a very good day today and things like this bother me even on a good day, lol.

        • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

          While I agree with you in parts, I just think that a lot of people do enjoy listening to Japanese voice tracks even tho they have no proper understanding of the language, and therefore can’t play the Japanese version. 

          Of course, it’s easy to say “Just learn Japanese!” to that kind of people. But seriously? What’s so bad about wanting & enjoying voice acting in another language? I, for example, really enjoy the French dubs of the anime series Seint Seiya, even tho I don’t understand any French. At all. But there’s lots of emotion and god, do some of the guys have deep sexy voices. 8)

          A lot can be conveyed through voices and the way someone talks, each person has their own melodic rhythm and all. So I personally find it always very interesting to have different dubs for one game / film / series and compare them. And chose the one that suits my taste the best. For P4 it was the Japanese dub, with The Last Story and Xenoblade I quickly settled for the English dubs, because I found them far superiour and lovely. Same goes for FFXII, god, I love Fran’s English voice. I’ve never heard a more mysterious voice than Nicole Fantl’s. 8)

          Given that nowadays there’s enough space to actually add a second language track (I mean, what the heck, Lost Odyssey’s EU version even had 6 of them!)  and considering that lots of publishers jumped on that train already, it would just be really neat if Atlus would finally consider it as well. :)

          PS: I gotta admit, I’m somewhat of an audiophile, if a guy has the right voice I could get all horny from just listening to him, so yeaaaaah. *coughs* My opinion on this matter is probably not very connected to the weeaboos who whine about English dubs being awful and Japanese one’s being so much more awesome. ;>

          • SuigetsuHiramura

            I agree with you~ voices from different languages have a certain exoticness to them. In no way am I dissing the original versions of anything. I just hate it when people needlessly post comments that could offend people. Everyone is free to have their own preferences just as long as they are respectable in expressing their opinion (like you were with this comment ^_^).

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            I guess I just wanted to show you (and everyone else who has been complaining) that there’s people like me here as well, who aren’t trying to shove their opinion down everyone’s throat. :> I get annoyed by that kind of people as well and it always makes me sad when these discussions start to get rude and everything, so I’m always glad when I see people like you, staying calm and respectful in their comments. And then I always get the urge to lighten up the mood by doing nerdy rants. 8) I guess this is my way of trying to contribute to this community.

          • XiaomuArisu

             Your Audiophile?Then listen to Liam O´brians Kain voice in dissidia 2.
            Im a guy but that voice…

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            Hell yeah.. 8) Sadly the gameplay is not really my cup of tea, but that voice.. I should really stop buying stuff just because there is awesome voice acting. 8)

            Well, I’m a girl, but certain girl voices (like Fran in FFXII) can make me drool as well. ;>

          • SuigetsuHiramura

            I’m thankful that people like you are in this community as well~ ^_^ Reasonable discussions CAN happen XD lol

    • takopako

      while i can understand why english voice actor-haters do so, i can easily say that persona 4 has some of the best english voice acting in any japanese native rpg(or game in general) that i have ever played.

    I never played this game, and I love my vita.  So I’m very happy.  Can’t wait to play it on that sweet OLED screen.  I’m sure it will look incredible, and more importantly the game is probably incredible.

  • http://twitter.com/Zhemos Jason A

    Can we get the JP audio this time Atlus?

    • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

      I always wonder why Atlus is one of the few companies that seem to dismiss the option of dual audio tracks all the time, even though they release so many titles that cater to the tastes of fans of Japanese media and therefore often ask for this. 

      Not that I’m not enjoying their English dubs, those are actually really good (tho not of the same brilliant quality as Squeenix’ and NoE’s recent English dubs) but I really like switching audio languages on games and compare them while I play the game and then just listen to the one I prefer at the moment until I maybe change my mind again. XD

      So, hell yeah, please give us dual audio this time. I’d even pay an extra $10 for that, since I understand that licensing the Japanese audio must cost a bit as well. I’d even be happy, if it was only available as paid DLC from the PSN store. 8)

      • Hraesvelgr

        Atlus is hardly “one of the few companies” that doesn’t do dual audio… Most localization companies don’t do dual audio.

        • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

          Then tell me which company didn’t at least realease one dual-audio game?

          Microsoft, Nintendo (tho I’m not sure if that’s just NoE), Namco Bandai, NISA all had a few already, NISA being the king of dual audio releases so far.. ;> Aksys will have dual audio for Virtue’s Last Reward, Ignition had it for El Shaddai… so that leaves us with Atlus, Konami, Squeenix, Natsume and XSEED as far as I can tell.. and for the latter two it’s clearly a matter of money. Konami and Square-Enix clearly just don’t care for japanophiles (just to get it out of the way, I do not count myself as one) as the majority games are meant to cater to both Western and Asian gamers.. but Atlus? They do make good business and could at least give it a try once, to see if it makes a difference in sales or not – it’s something quite a few people of their target audience have been asking for, so it just makes me wonder why they never even gave it a try. I’m seriously curious about that.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

            Amen, I too wonder about that. Anime community is big if the product is good. If it does succeed then more Japanese game could start coming to States sooner and with more verity of choice and maybe more Visual Novels. I know I’m getting ahead of myself. But I could at least dream about it.

  • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

    Good going Atlus! Now I want Dual Audio. 

    • veruses

       Please make it happen!

    • cj_iwakura

      I don’t think there’s been an Atlus game with dual audio since Odin Sphere.

      • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

        I know. Just some wishful thinking on my part.

       No, no, no. It needs to be said in the words of Kira. Speaking from the words of Aizen leads to imminent death by karma. ;)

    Sigh guess I have to get a Vita in the summer or I can just wait until Christmas so someone can GET IT FOR ME. Lol I really do not like spending my own money im so cheap :/

  • WingsOfEternity

    Finally another game for my Vita. Only have Disgaea 3 and Katamari atm.

    On another note, when are they gonna say something about P5???

    • jello44

      Have to wait for Atlus Japan to say something first.

    • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

      I don’t think they’ll be any word about that before P4G is released in Japan.. and I’d also think it’s more likely they announce another SMT title first (which I wouldn’t mind either tbh.. :>).

  • Nitraion

    Okay plan has been set for buying VITA..
    and for those wanted japanese voice i presume because recent anime you watch…
    well let’s see what happen next.
    TBH i’m waiting atlus to release new console version SMT games….

    • raymk

      That won’t happen for awhile, the only game coming out for console in a few is P4 arena.  P5 will come out down the road on ps3 like 2 years from now i’m sure.

    I’m waffling between being excited for this, wondering whether I should get it (because I’ve already played P4 and have an enormous backlog), and staring at my bank account forlornly (because getting this would mean getting a Vita).

    I will say that the changes look wonderful, though, and I hope those who hasn’t had a go at P4 will give this a chance.

    • Auragar

      I definitely will give P4G a chance even though I haven’t played P4 on PS2. I have become extremely enamored with Persona as of late.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/JadenPrinceton C.Guzman

    Will my wallet ever catch a break?…nope.
    (  +__+) If it’s for Persona-anything, it’s worth it.

    • brian yep

      I wish people felt that way about Megaten in general. ;-;

      • https://twitter.com/#!/JadenPrinceton C.Guzman

         Well, for me it’s anything within it’s universe in general! I mentioned only Persona since P4A comes out not too much before this haha.

  • Jirin

    Vita, eh?  All things considered, I’ll take a large screen over a few new gameplay gimmicks.  Though they seem like nice features.  

    I’m curious about this but I’m not going to buy the game again just to play it.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/HAEBCODVH3BGFIHE47BKNDXD2I Jonathan

    I’m still wondering what’s new with this game

    outside of bikes

    • SuigetsuHiramura

      If you read the article you’d know that ^_^ lol

    • AnimusVox

      New evolved Persona, quite a few more missions and cutscenes. New social links, new characters. I believe they added more to the battle system aswell.

      Oh and winter clothing :L

      I really wish they did something like this for P3P besides just giving you the FemC option.

      • AuraGuyChris

        By New Social Links, you mean just Marie.

        • Auragar

          By new social links and new characters*, you mean just Marie. But yah this is basically what CrazyKnives meant. Though I am excited in any case because I never played the original P4.

          • AnimusVox

            Sorry I was kinda thinking of the fighting game and it somehow melded into P4G

            (__ ___);

          • Auragar

            Don’t worry about it. Lol

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    so will teddie and chie have new voice actors then?

    • SuigetsuHiramura

      Teddie is now voiced by Sam Riegel and Chie is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald. I really hope they don’t change Yosuke’s voice actor -__- Yosuke just isn’t Yosuke without Yuri’s voice~ ^_^

      • yoUNg_grOUp568

        im pretty sure yosuke is the same, but does that mean they will redo all the old chie and teddie lines?

        • SuigetsuHiramura

          Hmm~ that’s a good question. It would sound pretty choppy if they used two voice actors to do the lines for the characters, but it would probably be cheaper if they used the old dub clips… nah, I think the new voice actors will redub the old lines on top of the new ones, lol.

          • yoUNg_grOUp568

            some people are saying that they will get erin fitzgerald to imitate the orginal chie voice as best as she can , but if they do then im not sure that is a good idea for teddie

          • AuraGuyChris

            And before we know it, she’ll make Chie sound like…MIDORI KOMAKI.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5IAZJVQP2LIQQTQG25JHVJIYTI James

    Sooooo Happy! I knew it was coming, but its nice to finally get a confirmation. And Finally a reason to buy a Vita. BTW, that new character, is she going to be a party member? Or just a social link? And will there be new outfits like in the P3 remakes?

    • SuigetsuHiramura

      Marie you mean? I’m pretty sure she’s just a Social Link character, but it would be pretty cool if she could be a party member as well ^_^

      • JMaster3000

        Ummmm isnt she a party member??
        I mean she joined the group right??

        • SuigetsuHiramura

          I’m not sure~ I don’t think anythings been confirmed in that respect ^_^ We haven’t seen any battle information about her, so I’m assuming that she’s just a Social Link character at the moment.

          • JMaster3000

            Hey….. Shes working with Igor so that means we are gonna get some kind of new fusion or shes gonna sell cards with skills and stuff like it was in P3P

    • hermenjart

      There are new winter outfits shown in the bottom-left screenshot above…there have been glimpses of several others in trailers and stuff too.

    • Auragar

      I believe I read that Marie (the new character) is just a social link character though “more party members (you win if you know the reference)” would be nice. Either way having not played the original P4 I am excite no matter what. xD

  • Opn

    having never played P4 and really liking the anime and loving P3P im defenitly getting this but this gives me a big reason to get a vita…now if only namco can announce a localization of TOIR then the vita will be a instant buy. :P

    • Opn

       also could someone whos a member of atlus’s forum and ask these three questions
      1) will the dub cast of the game be the same as arena
      2) will JYB still voice both adachi and yuu or not?
      and
      3) is sam reigal just a place holder for teddie or is he the offical new voice of him?

    • Auragar

      TOIR?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/5IAZJVQP2LIQQTQG25JHVJIYTI James

         Tales Of Innocence R I think… I want that one too, but I’m not holding my breath… I’ll be happy if they bring over Xillia.

        • Opn

           your right its tales of innocence R :).

          • Auragar

            OH. Yup I too wo9uld like TOIR to come over along with RO (Ragnarok Odyssey). I mean I already own a Vita but they are games I am interested in.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000147755574 Marcos Karal

    Hey, I just found about this: http://www.atlus.com/p4g/index.html
    Look at the bottom of the page, it says something about “PS3″, “X360″ and even “Kinect”

    • http://twitter.com/Cy6erjin Jin

      what are you talking about? can’t see anything

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000147755574 Marcos Karal

         Hm…

        I took a screenshot:
        http://i.minus.com/i7NafItTC8wJR.JPG

        • Opn

          sorry to say but they removed the mention of xbox/kinect but surprisingly the PS3 thing is still there but dont be quick to think its being released on PS3 but i guess we will see.
          edit: looks like you were mistaken atlus said via their twitter p4 the golden is just for vita.

          • Auragar

            The reasoning behind PS3 is probably because it too is a Sony system.

          • brian yep

            I could still easily understand them doing it, since P4 sold extremely well originally.
            NISA was going to port ZHP to PS3, so maybe Atlus was (HYPOTHETICALLY) thinking it would be a good way to sell extra with P4A coming soon.

  • rurin

    Yay!!! Now I just have to buy a Vita…

  • AnimeRemix

    THANK YOU ATLUS!!!! ♥_♥

    Starting to really debate whether I want a 3DS or Vita for christmas… I want Golden so badly!!! (And the original version on PSN Store so I can have this game on a HOME CONSOLE for my PS3). 

    The updates that really stand out a lot for me is…
    1.A bike that lets you travel to another town
    2.A winter event
    3.Team Attacks
    4.A brand new character

    Already beat “The Journey” on P3FES and currently playing through “The Answer”, and I just know that if i’m enjoying P3FES this much, I’ll enjoy P4 a lot too! ^__^

    • Herok

       Honestly go for the 3ds unless vita gets more stuff since at the moment the only thing to look forward to is golden and gravity while 3ds has tons of stuff, and I am not being biased since I own both.

    • SpecDotSign

      Get a Vita. It’s worth it. I honestly cannot wait for this. Although it seems like a new game altogether. Which I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

    • Auragar

      I own both and I can honestly say that for now 3DS might be a better choice unless you REALLY want P4G which… you seem like you do. lol In the end though it’s your choice.

    • http://twitter.com/IbrahimAbdulNur Ibrahim Abdul-Nur

      I say wait for E3, and maybe even Tokyo Game Show to make your decision

  • Herok

    Since its out this fall that saves me the trouble of importing.

  • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

    Wait.. did they.. just announce this just like that!? No tease? No cryptic messages that make us all puzzled? …and confused about our feelings for Atlus? 

    I’m so happy that they announced it, but why do I feel so disappointed as well? Don’t be all nice suddenly, Atlus, now that you already turned me into an M. 8)

    • HeatPhoenix

      Well…

      If you need an S…

      • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

        Only Atlus will ever be my one true S! ;P

  • Solomon_Kano

    About time. Thanks Atlus!

    But… anybody else feel like this announcement was kinda, uh, under… presented? I enjoyed the trolling :(

    Alright, I suppose I’ll start my jump into Persona over the summer. Grab the 3 RPGs off of PSN and get P4A, then wait patiently for P4G.

  • Jen Parker

    I’m not sure if I will be buying this since I have the ps2 version and I don’t like 4 as much as 3, BUT I’m glad to see they’re localizing it! It’s a great thing for new Persona fans that own a vita. Plus , I don’t mind the lack of dual audio, and NEITHER should anyone else. Persona 4′s voice acting is some of the best, top notch! People need to quit whining about the dual audio, if you want Japanese, get the Japanese one.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

      Silly padawan, why get upset at others who want dual? It’s not like Atlus will say forget English Dubbing, let just stick with Japanese dubs instead. Either way you’ll never be affected.

  • Croix

    Sold. This might only be the second Vita game I get by the time it comes out though, in spite of buying my system last month.

  • http://twitter.com/class_zero Rohan James

    well it’s not a new game though the anticipation is high, they just can’t tease like it’s a new game, i hope it’s much as fun as P3P at least if not better i will grab this when i buy a Vita(still waiting for the decent library)

  • http://twitter.com/class_zero Rohan James

    • HeatPhoenix

      I love this man.

  • HeatPhoenix

    So, Atlus, when will you guys be offering me the option to play with Japanese VAs?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jake-Joe/100002136802251 Jake Joe

      Their excuse will be that the lip synced to match the English voice acting just like Catherine.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tien-Ron/100001474007360 Tien Ron

       we don’t need Japaneses VA’s

    YAY!!!!! I am so super duper excited!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol I was pretty sure it was coming but still confirmation makes me a happy camper. :D

    *Evil Laugh* Yeeeeees… This pleases me.

  • Covnam

    Happy to see this announced, but now I’m not sure if I should bother with the ps2 version that’s sitting in my backlog or wait for this… and buy a vita to play it…
    Basically it’s big screen vs handheld+new features. If only the vita had tv-out like the psp. Then everything would be… golden.

    • Auragar

      I see why you did thar. lol

  • http://twitter.com/Triplicitrine Triplicity/3LeafIvy

    Oh, but what does the first Persona 4 Arena English tutorial video mean for Teddie’s voice in this…?

  • scratchbach

    Pretty much the biggest (but not the only) reason I got my Vita. The original P4 is my favorite game of all time, so I’m just a teeny bit excited for this! (understatement of the century…maybe the last two centuries even.)

  • Wackoramaco87

    SO happy that this was announced! Finally have a reason to purchase a Vita sooner, rather then later! =D

  • Go2hell66

    my vita is ready!

  • thebanditking

    Not a big surprise as I figured this announcement was inevitable but still glad to know when its coming. Thanks Atlus!

    I can rest easy now. Just in time for me to go off to college, too.

    Also, I agree with the dual audio wanters.  

    • HeatPhoenix

      We appreciate your support.

  • Yuri Kawasaki

    Yesssssssssss. Now I have a really good reason to get a PS Vita.

  • Crevox

    So are they going to redo all of Teddie’s voices?
