Persona 4 Available on PSN Today

Persona 4

Atlus‘ highly acclaimed RPG Persona 4 is available today for PlayStation 3 through the PlayStation Network in North and South America.

Players can download the PS2 Classic for $9.99.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4–commonly referred to as simply Persona 4–was originally released in 2008 for PlayStation 2. Despite being only one entry in the long-running Megami Tensei series, Persona 4 quickly became one of the most celebrated titles in the franchise. Persona 4’s success spawned fighting game Persona 4: Arena and an upcoming rhythm game called Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

[adsense250itp]In 2012, a remake of the game, Persona 4 Golden, was released for PS Vita. One of the highest rated games on the Vita, Persona 4 Golden gave the series a new base of fans. However, the version releasing today is just a straight port of Persona 4 and does not include any enhancements.

Persona 4 tells the story of a group of high school students trying to solve a string of murders in the small town of Inaba. As the main character, players can forge relationships with friends and family called Social Links. As a Social Link is strengthened, players are able to create more powerful personas–creatures that are used to fight in battle.

Different personas grant the player stat boosts or cast spells and, with frequent use, can gain new powers. Exploring dungeons to find new personas is a key element of the game but many players enjoy the social simulator aspects just as much.

Quick Take

While Persona 4 Golden might be the definitive version, the PS2 classic is still an experience that any RPG fan shouldn’t miss out on. Expertly written characters and a deep storyline are just as enjoyable as the brilliant gameplay. For the low price, anyone who missed out on the game during its PS2 days has no reason not to try it out. Plus, it should help fill the long wait until Persona 5 comes out sometime in 2015.
