The animation that will open Persona 4: Golden, the Vita remake of the popular PS2 RPG, was released earlier today. Unlike Persona 3 Portable, the previous handheld remake in the Shin Megami Tensei series, the game will not have to be shortened and simplified to run on portable hardware. Instead, the capabilities of the Vita will allow for the game to be expanded from the original release. Read on for a description of the enhancements, and to get a look at the opening animation.
Visuals have been beautifully remastered to take advantage of the PS Vita’s crisp, vibrant 5″ OLED display. The game’s aural presentation is better than ever, with 1.5 times the voiced dialogue of the original release. A new online dungeon rescue feature allows users to call on other players for assistance when they are about to die in the TV world. Persona 4 Golden is also overflowing with new content: new Personas to collect; new story events along with an all-new character; stunning new anime cutscenes, which include a new opening animation with a new song from master composer Shoji Meguro; a host of fan suggested tweaks and changes, and much more!
Persona 4: Golden will be released this fall.
