Atlus To Announce Persona & Growlanser For PSP

Weekly Famitsu: Persona

The upcoming issue of Weekly Famitsu, which went on sale in some parts of Japan already, has two new PSP games from Atlus. Persona, which was leaked by GameWave magazine few weeks earlier, is said to be a “complete remake” of the 13-year-old PSOne game and will be out in Japan on April 29. Among the improvements made are lots of new movies by Kamikaze Douga, three difficulty options (Normal, Beginner and Expert), more save points, enemies encounters and game balance adjustments. On the other hand, Growlanser will be a port of a 10-year-old RPG with new characters and routes. There will be adjustments to the battle tempo too, the release date is May 14 in Japan.

Update: Better quality scans.

    Way to go Atlus!

    This is how it should be done! Not the Square-Enix way… If you’re going to remake, do it the right way.

    Looking forward to this one :D
