Win a free copy of Persona 3 Portable and Junpei’s hat

UPDATE: We are no longer accepting new entries for this contest. Winners will be announced on this week's episode of TalkRadar, which will air on Friday, July 16. Good Luck!

Persona 3 was one of our favorite JRPGs for the PlayStation 2. It was unique, bold, and extremely badass. Earlier this week, Atlus released Persona 3 Portable, a loving remake for the PSP. The new version is full of fan service that will make the game feel fresh, even for longtime fans of the original. But if you’ve never played Persona 3 and aren't familiar with the series in general, we also urge you to give Persona 3 Portable a chance.

That’s why we’re excited to be able to giveaway three fresh copies of Persona 3 Portable and five Junpei hats, courtesy of Atlus. These hats are based on the one worn in-game by Junpei Iori, the girl crazy highschool student who loves big swords and hates studying. Usually this sweet piece of swag would be exclusively reserved for those who pre-ordered a copy of Persona 3 Portable.

To enter, just leave a comment on this article by 9:00 am (PST) on Tuesday, July 13. Three grand prize winners will receive a copy of Persona 3 Portable and five runners-up will receive a Junpei hat. Winners will be announced on next week’s episode of TalkRadar on Friday, July 16. You can read the official contest rules, here.

Good luck!
