While there seem to be a trickle of PS2 titles coming out yet, one of the greatest games to come to the PS2 came towards the end its cycle was Persona 3. Shortly thereafter Persona 3: FES came out. Now Atlus has announced that the Persona 3 has made it to the PSP.
Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that one of the highest rated RPGs of all-time, Shin Megami Tensei®: Persona®3 Portable™ for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, is now available in stores and on PlayStation®Network.
Persona 3 Portable releases to glowing praise for its compelling story, unique soundtrack, high-quality voice acting, graphics, solid RPG gameplay, intriguing characters, and more, making it an RPG experience PSP owners won’t want to miss. Destructoid gave it their Editor’s Choice Award along with a perfect score (10/10), writing, “We loved it before and we still love it.” GamerVision stated, “Persona 3 Portable is one of the strongest games in the PSP catalogue, and a shining example of a role-playing game done right,” also giving it a perfect 10/10. IGN.com praised the game as well, calling it “…a stellar game…” and offering it their Editor’s Choice Award.
Unique among its competitors, Persona 3 Portable is laden with stark contrasts. By day, players attend school, juggle interpersonal relationships, and even court a romance or two.
