Persona for PSP? Yes Please!

Persona on PSP yay!

Word from Kotaku is that Persona is going to see a complete remake for the Playstation Portable on April 29 (in Japan)-- I dunno about you guys, but I'm hoping it sees a US release. I've never played it, but I've always kind of meant to. Maybe this will be my shot?


I don't know how many of you are familiar with Growlanser, since it was never even brought out in the US to my knowledge, but the very anime-styled 1999 game is also going to hit PSP this spring. It'll be more of a port than a remake, but it will still have some new characters and other tweaks.

Yep, I know it happen.
on the side note, the PSP is region free so i think you can import the game. Since my Japaneses is extremely weak, I wait for the N.A. localization.

Yeah, I usually wait for a localization...exceptions: Katamari for PSP, and maybe Dissidia...Katamari and fighting games aren't quite as text-intensive ^_^

I read this story over at 1up, and that's just awesome! This is the perfect reason to keep on playing my PSP, instead on leaving it alone

Persona is a bada$$ game but for the psp? really. I cant say ive ever really played a rpg on a PSP but what i have played on one i didnt find it all that fun.

Shingui, they're moving quite a few PS1 and earlier games to PSP and DS, like the early Final Fantasies and whatnot.

oooo I'd be so up on this if it does come out over here <3

Totally missed this news item earlier, but ever since i started watching the Gaintbomb Persona 4 Endurance Run, i fell for the game / franchise. And now i can´t wait to play some persona myself. I don´t own a PS2 though so this remake of the first on the PSP would be great! I think this game will totally make me play my PSP again!
