Is Persona PSP is remake? An enhanced port? Look at the additions and decide for yourself. The first thing I noticed was the new battle interface. It looks more like Persona 3 with the character portraits on the bottom and moon icon in the top right hand corner. Here’s a comparison screenshot.




Japanese retailer Rakuten also has a list of revised features for the PSP version.


  • New animated movies done by studio Kamikaze Douga.
  • Rearranged soundtrack done by Shin Megami Tensei composer Shoji Meguro. Yumi Kawamura who sang in Persona 3 will do vocal tracks for Persona.
  • Supports 16:9 widescreen mode with a new user interface.
  • Additional dungeon floors have been added to the Sebek Chapter (main story) and Snow Queen Chapter. Watch out for new elements and tricky gimmicks.
  • Rebalanced gameplay with a tweaked encounter rate.
  • Considered to be more “user friendly” since players can pick the level of difficulty.
  • Battle loading times are 2/3rds faster compared to the original. During enemy encounters animations can be skipped. Sounds similar to Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
  • Extra save points are added as well as a quick save feature.
  • A revised city map with a top down view and highlighted landmarks. The original Persona had a simple 3D over world map similar to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
