A tease in a Japanese magazine has added weight to speculation a Persona 4 Portable announce is imminent.

Atlus has opened a new teaser site in Japan, but not much else. The site contains the URL p-atlus.jp with a yellow background and Persona-style front. By the by, Persona 4 was heavy on the yellow. Are we about to see Persona 4 Portable announced? Considering the past three games in the series have now made their way to PSP – the second is releasing this fall in Europe via Ghostlight – we wouldn’t be surprised. We hope so anyways.

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.

The remake for the first game is not even out the door yet for the PSP and they seem to have skipped 2, yet Atlus are porting Persona 3 for the PSP from the PS2 – that’s according to the latest issue of Famitsu.
There’s not much there in the way of info except that the port will have a new female playable character.
No date yet.
Scans over at the Examiner.

Atlus has announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona will launch simultaneously on both PSN and in stores September 22 for $40.
The 1997 remake has a reworked interface, fully localized script, voice work exclusive to the North American release, an expanded soundtrack and faster battles.
PSP version features some balance adjustments and new animated sequences by Devil May Cry 3′s Kazuma Kaneko.
Even better, retail copies of Person include a two-disc score composed by Shoji Meguro – but as a boxed version, this will only be made available for a limited time.
Still, great news for fans of Persona.
