Atlus just sent over a note telling us that Persona PSP’s digital release won’t be making its originally scheduled date. Instead, it’ll be ready to go a week after the game’s September 22 retail release.
“While we’d previously announced that a digital version would be available at launch (on 9/22) along with the retail UMD version, it will in fact slip a few days until 10/1/09,” said Atlus.
However, the publisher added that the brick-and-mortar edition will include all sorts of collector’s content – like a jam-packed soundtrack CD – for no additional fee.
We hate waiting and love music. Sounds like a no-brainer to us.

Details on Persona 3 PSP’s downsized upgrade are finally* starting to roll in, and the game’s looking like much more than a simple port.
Most notably, all that female main character jazz is choice-driven. At the game’s outset, you decide rather you want to be a soft-skinned, purty-lookin’ Japanese girl or a boy who, well, looks just about as a pretty as his female counterpart.
Depending on your main character’s gender, certain events within the game’s story will change. For instance, if you charge out the gates as a girl, a male attendant replaces Elizabeth in the shadowy Velvet Room.
Other changes include new difficulty levels, more effiecient methods of travel, and the ability to directly control your party members in battle.
The game’s launching day and date with the PSP Go in Japan. Odds are, it’ll reach our shores eventually, but for now, Atlus isn’t talking.
*It’s been, like, less than a day since it was announced. We’re very impatient when it comes to Persona, it would seem.

We’re pretty sure it’s still a game, though – and by the looks of things, a damn good one. Siliconera opened up their Nihongonomicon and gave us the scoop.
According to a translated listing from Japanese retailer Rakuten, Persona’s PSP edition will include new animated movies, a soundtrack rearranged by Persona 3’s composer, and new dungeons.
The game’s difficulty, on the other hand, is feeling a wee bit less fierce after getting hit with the shrink ray, and will further be utterly emasculated by extra save points and a quick save option.
Still sounds rad, though. More through the link.

See here. Atlus is to release Japanese all-girl fighter Arcana Heart for PS2 on April 8. The game looks the right side of awesome, and features 11 lady fighting types “battling to prevent a power-hungry woman from destroying the world”. Aren’t we all. There’s no detail on a European launch.

The PS2, Koei-published JRPG Shin Megami Tensai: Persona 3 has been given a 10 in OPS magazine in the UK and will ship in Europe in February, Koei confirmed this morning.
The game sees the player surviving a year in a school “plagued by creatures of the night”. Blimey.
Naoki Katashima, Executive VP of KOEI Europe and KOEI US, said, “Persona 3 is one of the most highly regarded RPGs of recent times and we are delighted to be able to bring this renowned title to European gamers. We look forward to continuing to work with Atlus to bring the very best Japanese RPGs to Europe.”
