SMT: Persona Coming to PSP


Atlus has decided that North American gamers are going to get the best JRPGs no matter what.

PSP fans will be especially happy with the news that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for the PSP will be released “within the calendar year.” More concretely, the press release goes on to state that Fall is the most likely window for launch.

The new release will feature almost identical gameplay to that of the title that started it all, but this time the localization has been completely redone – we can only assume for the better.

Press Release:

February 24, 2009 – Atlus U.S.A., Inc, today announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, a remake of the first entry in the critically-acclaimed RPG series, will be released in North America within the calendar year.

SMT: Persona stands as a proud relaunch for the award-winning series, featuring a completely redone localization and content never before seen in North America. Combined with gameplay enhancements and additions new to the remake, fans will have the chance to experience the first Persona game released in North America in a whole new way. Those looking to see the original epic in a whole new light, those who missed out the first time around, and even those PSP system owners who crave a marquee RPG: that which you seek is approaching.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona is currently scheduled to release this fall.
