Persona 4 Confirmed For Vita, Persona 5 In Development On TBA Platform (Oh Come On, It’s The PS3)

In news that is sure to whip up Persona and JRPG fans into a frenzy, Catherine developer Atlus has today confirmed that a remake of Persona 4 will launch not on the PSP as previous titles in the series have, but instead, on Sony’s forthcoming PSVita handheld.

Officially titled Persona 4: The Golden, the title supports 3G and WiFi, allowing other players to pop into your game and help you out with a particular dungeon if you’re a being a bit shit.

Rounding out the package, is the promise of brand new event scenes, new Personas, a smattering of extra character outfits and a reworked animated intro and additional anime style sequences.

Persona 4: The Golden is slated to drop in Japan in Early 2012, with a Euro release date being pie in the sky at the moment. If I had to guess however, i’d say Q3/Q4 2012.

Persona 5 was also confirmed to be in development on formats to be determined (read: PS3) and will apparently be utilisting a brand new engine for ‘smoother’ development. No release date has been given regarding the title, but if I was a betting man I would estimate that the game would get a Japanese release in early/mid 2013 with a Euro release possibly following at the end of that year or the start of the following one.

On PS3.
