Atlus’ teaser website was what most of our readers suspected — a port of Persona 4 for the PlayStation Vita, titled Persona 4: The Golden. The Vita version adds new features reported by this week’s Famitsu magazine.
Amongst new additions to the game are new characters. One of these is Marie.
Another is the addition of more voiceover work for the Vita version; Persona 4 Golden will contain 1.5 times the voicework of Persona 4, as well as new songs. Also being added is a new opening movie, and new event and anime movies during the course of the game.
Persona 4: The Golden will also utilize the Vita’s online capabilities. You’ll be able to call for help if you’re having a hard time in the game’s dungeons. Finally, Famitsu mention a mysterious highly-requested feature that has also been added to the game but will be announced at a later date.
Persona 4: The Golden is slated for a spring 2012 release in Japan.
Food for thought:
Famitsu provide a hint for the mysterious unnannounced feature: “The addition of __, the __ part will be announced later.”
