It’s Persona 3, and it’s portable. ‘Nuff said.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — JANUARY 20, 2010 — Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed that Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®3 Portable™, the handheld adaptation of one of the highest-rated role-playing games of all time, would release in North America for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system in July.

Featuring the unprecedented addition of a new player-controlled female protagonist who offers players a fresh new perspective for one of gaming’s most inventive narratives, P3P adds dozens of additional hours of playability on top of a game that already easily exceeded 100 hours of total play time. Numerous additional improvements and enhancements serve to streamline the experience for optimal handheld RPG enjoyment.

“Persona 3 introduced a revolutionary social element to role-playing games,” explained Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus. “Players weren’t just progressing through a story; they were a part of it, and their decisions and the relationships they chose to foster or neglect became a powerful complement to the game’s satisfying combat. Persona 3 Portable takes everything that made Persona 3 such a tremendous, award-winning hit and translates it into the perfect handheld RPG experience.”

SMT: Persona 3 Portable is currently scheduled for release on July 6, 2010.

    I’m tempted. I’ve already bought Persona 3 twice and I’m still tempted. This can’t be good.

    i would certainly pick this up if i had a psp, i really liked story/style of person 3, but i just found the day time stuff to be repetative after the hundredth visit to the karaoke bar (a had a big set of balls on me after all that singing in public)

    i never completed it, probably only got about half way through, then lent it to a guy at work, a work at which i don’t work anymore
