Persona 4 The Golden: PS Vita remake gets a flashy Japanese trailer

Having announced a glut of Persona content all at once back in August, Atlus has been steadily releasing info on the new titles. You've seen a glimpse of fighting spinoff Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena,  and now the company's now ready to start teasing Persona 4 The Golden with a trailer packed with the series' trademark stylish visual overload.

Whereas The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena pits characters from Persona 4 in a new, Guilty Gear-esque adventure, it's The Golden that RPG purists ought to be keeping an eye on. This remake of the PS2 original was originally planned for a stripped-down PSP release, but Atlus has wisely chosen to go in the other direction: taking advantage of the Vita's fancy new bits to deliver a souped-up remake with new story elements, more speech and cinematics, and added gameplay features.

The game's not scheduled for an English-language release yet. However Catherine, Atlus' recent gamble with Western players' tolerance for J-weirdness, paid off handsomely for the company – so it's likely we'll hear of a translation of this popular remake before too long.

    Is it me or are they showing that they did here in 4 what they did in the psp remake of 3 offering male/female lead chars again? Which would be sweet. Also hope they add costume changes in like 3 had those were the only things I thought the game was missing really.

    Blast! I don't plan on buying a Vita because I already own a 3DS and I don't believe in owning more than one portable system. You are making this decision very difficult...

    ah persona. one of those rare gems that is a must-play despite its incredibly niche status. one of the best things about games, really.
