New character, scenes, Personas, and more.

As all Famitsu leaks go, last night we received partial details on Persona 4: The Golden, an enhanced Persona 4 port for PlayStation Vita. Today, Sokuho@Hokanko summed up additional details.

The game will have:

  • 3G, Wi-Fi support.
  • A new character named Marie, voiced by Kana Hanazawa. She’s a “mysterious girl” who appears before the main characters.
  • If you’re about to die in a dungeon, you can send an SOS to other players. Famitsu did not entirely detail this feature.
  • New event scenes.
  • New anime movie scenes.
  • 1.5 times the voice-overs of the PS2 version.
  • New Personas.
  • New character outfits.
  • An element highly requested by fans.

When Persona 3 came to PSP, Atlus had to cut some of the content. When a portable Persona 4 was decided upon, producer Katsura Hashino said that they originally wanted to bring it to PSP, but couldn’t without content cuts. On PSV, they realized they can make a game better than the PS2 version. Persona 4: The Golden will retain the quality of the PS2 original and add new elements at the same time, promised Hashino.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    I can’t wait for the next two weeks of Vita announcements. I’m really beginning to love this platform.

      @Sal Romano: I agree. And with Persona 4 being a game that absolutely loved it’s even harder to resist. I’m glad they decided to make it a superior title on the Vita rather than just throwing it on the PSP.
