Persona 4: The Card Battle Brings Persona Card Collecting To GREE

By Ishaan . August 31, 2012 . 11:30am

Persona 3 already has a social game, and now Persona 4 is getting one, too. Index have announced Persona 4: The Card Battle for the GREE social games platform.


In Persona 4: The Card Battle, you collect cards of characters from the Persona universe and do battle. That includes the Personas themselves, and Index say there are over 400 cards to collect.


Persona 4: The Card Battle will launch in September, but users can sign up for the game now.

    The P4 cow is dry, the meat is rotten, and now Atlus is kicking the P4 cow’s dead corpse.

    • Wow dude, this is a serious butthurt, it’s just a simple card game, not an “canon game”. Probably it’ll never be translated or released in USA/Europe |:

      • Highasthesky

        I hear your point. and yea i might sound “butthurt” still that doesn’t change the fact that Atlus is milking the Persona 4 franchise way to hard. Anime, Remake, Porno, Specialized cups, Fighting game, Card game, Persona 4 arena Manga, Persona 4 artbook. and the list goes on =/

        • AnimeRemix

          There’s a Persona 4 Porno? Uhh… What? o_O

          • Yes, there is. If you’re wondering how I know… I have a lot of acquaintances who are fans of Persona 4, and… they’re a curious bunch. (I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them were actually talking about it in Open Thread before 18+ stuff was banned.)

          • Quinton Cunningham

            Yeah, J-List just posted about it yesterday on their Facebook. Let me look and see what it is called…


            Well… That’s a… Unique name.

        • I don’t think Atlus got a single drop from the 18+ stuff though.

          …No subtext intended.

        • Lazulis

          Atlus/Index isn’t behind the porno. At all. Not even in front of it. Joking aside, it’s the same as parodies or skits on TV shows. Just…it happens to be porn.  The people behind the porno probably went, “Oh, what’s popular right now, P4? Let’s pornify this!”. It’s like how there’s a popular movie, there’ll be a porno parody & a b movie imitation like a month or two later.

    •  Exactly as I predicted in 2010.

    • It’s not like these side projects make the original game any less excellent.  Just don’t buy them if you don’t want em, it’s not like they’re making these INSTEAD of Persona 5 or Shin Megami Tensei 4

      Plus, the primary spinoff, Persona 4 Arena, is absolutely fantastic, so if that counts as ‘milking’ then milk away, I say.

    • LynxAmali

       P3 did it first.

      Just saying.

      • Jesse Thompson

        P3 sure did, I must own 5 or 6 copies and they definitely aren’t all the same version, if you know what I mean!

  • Z3

    By the Gods, why am I not surprised why?!?!!?

  • Ty Arnold

     The Persona 4 nut in me wants to play this game, and the rational part of me is punching that part of me in the face and saying, “Look, you’ve played like five versions of this exact same game and they all sucked, what makes you think this one will be any good?”

  • Rihawf

    A card game…? What now…?
    Persona 4 platformer with Kuma?

  • Ooh Bee

    Honestly don’t care about P4 anymore. Come on, Atlus. Give us P5 already.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Considering the port of Persona 4 to Vita added motorcycles, I suppose a card game was inevitable.

    • Tales_of_Master

       You don’t mean….CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES !!! Take my money Atlus >:D

      • Yu_TheKing

        *cough* Yusei Fuudo would like a word with you…

    •  God…dammit.

    • Göran Isacson

      But who will be the one to make the inevitable LET’S PLAY A CARD GAME…. WHILE STANDING PERFECTLY STILL…. ON THE GROUND-joke?

  • riceisnice

     I activate Louise Cypher!

  • SirRichard

    So that’s what the Persona 4 Media Empire was missing.

  • personablaze

    Lego Persona 4 coming soon…..

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    To be fair this game makes more sense than half of the other social games announced the last month.

  • Silversun92

    Hey Atlus, solve this math problem: 4+1= ?

    •  Stop asking, they said it is in development.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    milking the heck out of 4 XD

  • Is that new Alice art? <3
    What is GREE anyways?  I'd love to play this actually.

    • xLogick

      They’re a huge Japanese social game dev.  They’re pretty much the Japanese Zynga.

      • Tommy Lee

        They’re just a social network, not a developer. They’re something similar to Facebook, except they have more focus on games in order to differentiate themselves from their competitors. 

  • Kefkiroth

    P4 looks really milked, that must mean it should be a REALLY good game, right? :P Can’t wait to beat P3P (first-time SMT player) and play P4G for the first time.

    • personablaze

      Persona isn’t SMT,If you wanna play SMT pick up Nocturne or Digital devil saga those games are epic,But P4 Is Good (imo)

      • Kefkiroth

        I know the Persona games are spin-offs, but they’re still techinically part of the SMT franchise, and I heard 3 and 4 were a good place to start.
        And yeah, I’ve heard good things about Nocturne and DDS.

      • sonicjms

         wait wait wait DDS wasnt even labeled as Megami Ibunroku like most megaten spinoffs in japan (well at least the first games in the sub-series). DDS is technically less of a SMT game than Persona. (not to say its bad or anything, just making a point)

  • DemonicX

    If you collect cards from the Persona universe, wouldn’t it make more sense to just call it Persona: The Card Battle?

    Talk about milking… >_>

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Man Teddie really liked crossdressing. Even in Arena and Golden he can wear those clothes. 

  • Lazulis

    Time to play this while on my motorcycle.

  • Sardorim

    First they were kids investigating murders in TVs, now they’re kids playing a children’s card game in TVs.

  • ………… FINE if u want moneh for SMT IV and P5.
