Persona 4 Golden

For those of you who missed out in 2008, Persona 4 features Japanese high school students battling against demons and monsters after somehow getting sucked into their televisions. Though turn-based combat, each character is able to summon personas, which represent a different aspect of their personalities, to fight in turn based combat against the various monsters they face. Persona 4 Golden is a new re-release of the classic game, featuring tons of new elements to the game, including additional story content, multiplayer components, personas, and more.

Read Sarah LeBoeuf's full preview here. Persona 4 Golden is due to arrive in October for the PlayStation Vita.

Sarah LeBoeuf: The core game is the same as the PS2 version, and while there are new characters, none of them are playable. That doesn't mean there's not a lot of new content, though. There's a new "chapter" of the story, a whopping 40% more dialogue, new theme music, and an online rescue system that allows you to get help from a friend when you're stuck in a dungeon. We didn't get to see the online system in action, but it will be interesting to see how that changes the dynamic of the single-player game. There are even bonus goodies to unlock, like a live concert of Persona music.
