Atlus Gives PSP Some RPG Lovin’


Good PSP news continues to flow in today with Atlus USA announcing plans to localize Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for release this fall. SMT: Persona is a PSP remake of Revelations: Persona, the first game in the beloved Persona series originally released in 1996 for the PS1. The PSP remake will feature a retooled interface, recomposed soundtrack, new cel-shaded cutscenes, multiple difficulty settings and a completely redone localization bringing content that was trimmed out in the original PS1 version’s US localization.

And catching up from an announcement Atlus made this past Friday, PSP RPG Crimson Gem Saga (aka Astonishia Story 2 and Garnet Chronicle throughout Asia) is coming to North America. Watch for its retail launch on May 26th.

So there ya go, two more PSP games to look forward to!
