PS2 favorite coming to PSV.

Persona 4 will see a re-release three years after its original launch, Famitsu has revealed. This time, it’s coming to PlayStation Vita.

Persona 4: The Golden is an enhanced port for Sony’s new handheld, adding new characters, animation movies, 1.5 times the amount of voice-overs, a new opening anime, and more. Marie, voiced by Kana Hanazawa, is one of the new characters.

Out in Japan in spring 2012, it will utilize the “communications capabilities” of PlayStation Vita.

Thanks, Sinobi.

    Holy shit.

    Vita, you had me without P4. Now you’ve got me times a gajillion. That’s right. A gajillion.

  • FaithlessMr

    Quite possibly the only game that interests me in the Vita so far, nice!

  • FinalFantasy_fangirl

    Exciting yet very disappointing because the PS3 is in desperate need of jrpgs. I was hoping for a portable and PS3HD

    • I can’t imagine it would take much resources away for a sequel. Its a port. It should be a short development cycle that will concentrate mostly on upgrades and a few new additions. I want a full fledged console version too. I believe its coming.

  • hush404

    Sony is pulling all the right punches in getting a lot of people excited for the vita with moves like this.

  • Genesis

    knew that this was coming! Can’t waiitt

  • neku

    not suprising another port, this is why i don’t care about vita.

    • KingdomPersona

      @neku: Dude you know they’s another game that are not port like Gravity Rush and Dragon’s Crown and don’t think The 3DS is not guilty of having Remakes so hey your option dude.

      • neku

        @KingdomPersona: dragons crown is also on ps3, im just saying that developers dont seem to be taking risks with vita, mostly games that have already relesed or also have a ps3 version. But i do love me some persona.

        • Sal Romano

          @neku: I beg to differ. Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend (announced for PSV first), New King’s Story, Mutant Blobs Attack, Escape Plan, Little Deviants, and many more say otherwise.

          And plus, the system’s not even out yet.

          • neku

            @Sal Romano: oh sal…..i ment games that i like, not vita games in general. But i respect you enthusiasum

  • Wow! A MUST DAY ONE PURCHASE! The Vita just keeps getting impressive games announced and it has a long way before coming out!

  • KingdomPersona

    Well.. DAY ONE FOR ME this game and VITA :)

  • Sal Romano


  • Chaos Raiden

    I seriously hope that this will come out on PS3/Xbox 360.

  • Kobracon

    Well well well…..The Vita just got my attention :))))

    P.S. Any scans on this Marie? I’m intrigued.

    • Sal Romano

      @Kobracon: Second scan is Marie.

  • Zero

    Hmm is it going to be like P3P with a female antagonist as a choice at the start? I hate to admit I never got to play P3P, but it looked like a cool idea.

    I’m also omega confused with the picture of Aigis in the scans lol.

  • whiteferrero

    hey sal, any details why aegis is on that 2nd scan?
