The latest issue of Famitsu DVD version has brought good news: Persona 4 is announced for the Ps2 and it’s scheduled to be released in Japan on September 10th. The issue, besides having several pages about the game content (which can be seen on RPGGamer), also brings a special 17 m trailer with several ingame anime sequences and game footage.
Persona 4 happens 2 years after Persona 3 and it’s located in a countryside setting and instead of a lunar system, it has a weather system, with the events being related to them: in foggy days, there is always a murder, for example. Another addition is the new kind of “Evoker”: instead of the polemic gun from Persona 3, the protagonists seem to summon their personas with the help of glasses. More new addictions is a list of 180 Personas, multiple endings, 4 party members at a time and the estimation of being 1.5 times bigger than Persona 3.
But meanwhile, there is no info if the game is connected to Persona 3 or Persona: Trinity Soul or if it will have a English localization. But considering the strong sales of Persona 3, it is a good chance we will have.
