It’s taken over three years, but Persona 3's excellent big screen adaptation has finally reached its end.
Persona 3 is one of the best JRPGs ever developed. The story was moving, the gameplay made turn-based combat relevant again, the music was a catchy fusion of jazz and vocals, and the social interactions, epitomized in the community links, exemplified its fresh take on the genre. That sense of community is what I feel…
When talking about Persona 3 and 4 and their respective spin-offs and sequels, people always seem confused when the various games take place. And it’s no wonder. While some games show the date constantly, others only give hints as the when they happen.
Following in the steps of the Persona dancing game, one fan decided the next logical step would be a Persona go-carting game.
The casts of Persona 3 and Persona 4 will soon be dungeon crawling together with the release of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. This is the perfect excuse to arbitrarily rank who has the best chance at making it out alive! ...Oh who are we kidding?
Look, Persona 4's playable character was nice enough, I guess, but it's always nicer going back to Persona 3's quieter, more teenage hero. Or, in this case, a fantastic recreation of the guy.
This past week in Tokyo saw the end of the second Persona 3 musical's run. And while I had not seen the first, I decided with my vast knowledge of the series I owed it to myself to give Persona 3: The Weird Masquerade: The Ultramarine Labyrinth a watch.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, sequel to Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 4 Arena, is a fighting game. However, unlike many fighting games, it comes with a robust story in the form of a 14-hour visual novel. And since we've looked at Ultimax as a fighting game already, it's only fair we look at it as a visual novel as…
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax shares a lot with its predecessor Persona 4 Arena. When it comes down to the 2D fighting, they are largely the same game. However, outside of the fighting engine, there are a lot of new additions that make it worth playing—especially for Persona series fans.
While it has “Persona 4” in the title, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is really a sequel to Persona 3 as much as Persona 4—especially as Ultimax now includes every member of the Persona 3 main cast we are likely to get.
Remember the days when you would go to an arcade, put a quarter into the machine of your favorite fighting game, and wait for a challenger to walk up, put in his own coin and fight you? So it goes with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
Welp, I had so much fun two weeks back filling in for Fahey with the Saturday Morning Stream that I decided to do it again. Only this time, with the new Persona fighting game in my hot little hands, I just couldn't wait till Saturday. So join me as I play Persona 4 Arena Ultimax live for your pleasure this fine…
Last days. Leaving places. I know all things end. But last Friday, after almost ten years, it was a goodbye lunch, farewells, an exit interview and then a final departure out of the parking lot. I never realized how much I would miss my company and the people in it until I was leaving, even though it was on the best…
With the recent release of the Persona 3 movies, it’s no surprise that next month will see the release of a new Persona 3 stage play in Japan. And it’s no exaggeration to say the cast looks excellent in costume.
Fighting game Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena is being turned into a stage play. Film director Shutaro Oku, who previously directed the Persona 4 theatrical production, is helming the production. It will be written by Jun Kumagai, who wrote Persona 4: The Animation as well as the Persona 3 and Persona 4…
I love Persona 3 and Persona 4. They are easily among my favorite JRPGs. So a game that mixes together the characters of both games in an all new adventure seems right up my alley—which it is for the most part. But when it comes down to it, Persona Q lives or dies based on how much you enjoy being pandered to.
As I was recently watching the new Persona 3 movie , I remembered that before Persona 4, there was already a sequel to the hit PS2 game Persona 3 in the form of the anime Persona: Trinity Soul. However, only hearing negative things about it for years, I wondered if it was as bad as I had been led to believe. It…
Have you been wondering what a game filled with cute versions of your favorite Persona 3 and 4 characters plays like? Well wonder no longer. We’ve got you covered.
I played a lot of Persona Q this past weekend, but let me say, I loved every moment I spent in battle—though not because of the (perfectly adequate) battle system. What I really loved was the game's awesome battle theme.
