Persona 4 Details

Persona 4 Announced for PS2

How radical is this news? I’d say, from 1 to 10, an 11. I can’t hardly breathe, the awesomeness is just too much. This week’s Famitsu has tons of information about the upcoming Persona 4, which will be on the PS2. Persona 4 is set in the countryside and the story revolves around a murder mystery. Persona 4 will also have an interesting new feature, a weather forecasting system and whenever there is fog…a murder takes place, which is interesting…different. There will be 60-70 hours of gameplay and 180 personas, which seems like a lot (I can’t find how many were in Persona 3, but I don’t think there were 180).

Persona 4 is scheduled to be released July 10th in Japan. Hopefully we will see a U.S. release soon after.
