Shin Megami Tensei: Persona now has a home

by: Jake -
An official site, that is. Every game needs a spot on the internet to call its home, and it's good advertisement. Must say the site looks very nice, and has some nice features, in particular information on the game.. That's always important for people like me who don't know anything about the product, and would like to know more. After reading the "story" section, it sounds to me like it'd make a good movie. Read further for a detailed description of the site, and of course, the link.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 17, 2009 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today gave
fans yet another place to waste time on the net by launching the

About SMT: Persona
The rumor going around St. Hermelin High School holds that if you play
the "Persona" game, you can see what the future holds for you. When a
group of students-some eager, some skeptical-tries the game out, they
experience something quite different. Before long, the city is turned
upside-down and demons are roaming the streets, and only the students'
newfound power of Persona can set things right again.

Whether you pursue Takahisa Kandori and his abuses of the power he
wields as SEBEC's president, or whether you delve into the curse of
the Snow Queen that has plagued St. Hermelin for decades, a deep,
modern, psychological tale awaits. Remember your true self, and free
the tortured psyches of others...

Key Features

More than the same old JRPG -- Dark, philosophical, and complex,
Persona sets you up in a modern day Japan that has gone into chaos.
Demons run free, and you and your team must navigate corruption,
mental frailty, and an alternate version of your world to bring your
reality back into order.
A second chance on PSP -- Offering a second opportunity to experience
the beginnings of the acclaimed Persona series, this remake boasts a
fully relocalized script, revamped user interface, faster battles,
expanded soundtrack, and new in-game movies with voice work added just
for the North American release.
Unique tactical opportunities -- The inner selves known Personas are
your key to progressing through the adventure, adding skills and
incredible depth to your battle tactics. Expand and improve your
collection through the Demon Negotiation system that offers spell
cards that you can later fuse into new Personas.
