How many games do you know that manage to combine Jungian psychology, Japanese school-life and urban legends? Just like me, the Persona series isn’t as popular in the West as Final Fantasy, but it’s been around just as long (since 1987), and is arguably much more interesting.
If it weren’t a severe breach of protocol I’d just put the giant YES up at the top of the review. But it is. So I won’t.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night has a lot of awesome remixes of your favorite Persona 4 songs. You know what else it has? A ton of costumes to dress everyone up in.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night isn’t the meatiest of music games—it currently only has 30 songs (3 of which are DLC). However, it largely makes up for this with the sheer number of new remixes of classic Persona 4 songs. Have a listen!
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.
A Persona 4-themed music game? Alright, people. Let’s rock out!
I’ve been driving myself crazy over this game for months. In five days it’s released in Japan for the Vita, a format without region locking. I’ve been starting at Play Asia for an hour. Send help.
Since we can never have too much Persona 4, UDON Entertainment is bringing the manga stateside. Starting in September the publisher will begin releasing English volumes bi-monthly through 2015 and into 2016.
No. You can’t do this, Persona 4: Dancing All Night. You can’t just pull out the ‘every day’s great at your Junes’ jingle and weaponize it like this. Noooooo.
I’ve been watching this for hours. I’ll be watching this for hours.
Following in the steps of the Persona dancing game, one fan decided the next logical step would be a Persona go-carting game.
You've see the trailer. Now, let's dive in and see if we can parse what it all means, whether that's going through the obvious hints or deciphering the vague clues.
Well, this is new. A game trailer that doesn't have gameplay or live-action nonsense or cinematic puff. It's just...well, it's the perfect trailer for a Persona game that's about dancing your ass off.
It was inevitable. This was bound to happen. Behold, an official Persona burger.
It's easy to forget that with a fighting game out soon, a 3DS RPG on the way, and Persona 5 after that, there's one more Persona game on the release schedule.
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 well.
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.
