Atlus Ships Persona 3, Luminous Arc

Persona 3Art book mishap now remedied, Atlus USA has officially shipped Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 to retailers at long last, after eight years since the last game and a few painful weeks of further delay since the game’s original release target of July 24th. Having been plugging away at an early review copy for about a week or two now, I can assure you that the wait was well worth it — Persona 3 is one hell of a fantastic RPG you shouldn’t miss if you own a PS2 (or PS3).

Not to be left out, the DS strategy-RPG Luminous Arc also shipped today, giving Atlus a spiffy one-two punch of great game releases this week.
