New release versus 2008 debut.

Persona 4 Golden launched in Japan today. And with consumer accessibility means OS-level screenshots. And with OS-level screenshots come proper comparisons to the original PS2 version. See how Persona 4 Golden has changed from its 2008 debut as Persona 4 below, courtesy of Hachima Kikou.

Persona 4 Golden is due this fall in North America.

    Sal, I think its somewhat obvious for the people who are in the know, but it would more clearly defined if you distinctly stated which column portrays the PS2 version, and which portrays the Vita, either in the article or above their respective columns of screenshots.

    I am very happy to know that not a mere port. :)

    For those who have not already noticed there are new shadows and textures in areas…

  • StriderHiryu

    Is it just me, or the body proportions of some characters has been slightly corrected?

  • icedearthaholic

    Yeah, the game overall looks much better on the Vita is all I got to say. I am sure they have rain effects for the rainy days in store, we’re in for a treat here.
