For all of us RPG enthusiasts, a beloved masterpiece returns this month – Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation Vita, due on shelves from 22nd February.
This is quite possibly one of the best RPGs ever released. The game tells its intriguing story with flow and grace, refusing to overwhelm the player with gratuitous cut scenes. The battle system is intuitive, with simple mechanics that won’t leave you wondering where your manual is while the enemy is torching your characters. And finally, this game is packed with new additional content never before seen in the original Persona 4.
So what is Persona? Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is Metacritic’s PlayStation 2 Game of the Year for 2008. Persona 4 places you in the shoes of a high school student who needs to strike a balance between school, a social life, learning more about his family, and, as it happens, investigating a series of gruesome murders that may or may not involve a psychedelic world that lies behind the screen of every television in town.
