    I've never really heard of persona before as I don't generally play JRPG's, but it seems to have an interesting story, so I have two questions: What consoles are the previous games on and have they aged well?

    They were on PS2, though you can get P3 on PSN for your PS3 and an updated P4 will be out on Vita in the fall. They hold up very well.

    Thanks, this info and the first two kingdom hearts games are looking to justify the purchase of a PS2.

    As an Arc System Works fanboy, I plan to pick this up- keep in mind I give a f**k about who these characters are, since I dislike JRPGs. So yeah, this was a nice article that saved me from a Wiki trip : )

    Really nice article for those not too familiar with the world of Persona, Henry. Already pre-ordered the game, I'll probably main Yukiko since she is my favorite character of P4.

    Looking forward to it! I'm still hoping they add more P3 characters as DLC. Junpei and Yukari to be specific.

    Oh typos :D On the Kanji page.. "starting fights and skipping glass" :D Other than that, really nice article, as I wasn't exactly sure who was in the game haha Too bad I can't get it anytime soon (due to lack of the monies ><)

    Is there a game that the actual Persona games compare to? And is there a good jumping on point or would I need to play them all? I have an interest in the series, but don't have a whole lot of info about it.
  • Cyberninja - July 24, 2012 2:41 p.m.

    They are all self contained entries so you don't have to play any before jumping in. The only game in the series that requires prior knowllege is P2:Eternal Punishment since it is part 2 of P2. also P1 and 2 have old school game play and P3 and 4 are newer RPG style.

    Henry, the martial arts club doesn't exist

    Yay it got fixed Although you never take care of a dog during the social link, Chie only mentions taking care of it when Yukiko couldn't in the past Gah I feel like one of those anal nerds, but the truth must be spoken!

    Damn it I am so hyped for this game. Can't wait to smack some fools with a chair and stare at Mitsuru's battle suit
  • BladedFalcon - July 24, 2012 1:12 p.m.

    Ah! this is greatly appreciated! I'm looking forward to this game mainly because it's an Arc systems fighting game, but I know nothing about the Persona games. So a little bit of background and introduction to the characters is very welcome ^^ Personality-wise, Kanji Tatsumi sounds like the most amusing and interesting, though gameplay-wise I think I like Mitsuru and Yu the most.

    Thanks! You are the exact person I wrote this for. Now please reread the page a million times. Disclaimer: I am joking
  • TheCakeIsaPie - July 24, 2012 1:32 p.m.

    OK, Hank. I hit F5 a million times. You owe me, buddy.
  • JMarsella09 - July 24, 2012 1:02 p.m.

    God I love this series. Pre-ordered this game already, mostly for the included soundtrack. Henry, you really should attempt to convince Brett to do a VGMpire episode for Persona.
