Persona 4: The Golden coming to PS Vita

 

I posted about the teaser website Atlus opened up a few days ago in hopes it would be a Persona 4 remake for the PlayStation Vita. That has now been confirmed. News of the remake comes from this week’s Famitsu magazine.

The game, a remake of the 2008 PS2 RPG, will be officially named Persona 4: The Golden and will have numerous new features. The most notable of these is the addition of a new character, Marie.

Alongside new songs, Persona 4: The Golden will also feature 1.5 times the voicework of the original. The game will also get a new animated opening movie and more animations throughout the course of the game.

The PlayStation Vita’s online capabilities will be supported. If you are about to die or in some trouble while exploring a dungeon, you may go online and call for help from other people.

The article also mentions that other elements that have been heavily requested by fans will be added to the game. No more was said on the topic.

Persona 4: The Golden will be available in Japan in Spring 2012.
