NCS Product Synopsis - Updated: April 28, 2009
When Atlus released the original Persona in 1996, the portable handheld of choice was the Gameboy. The very first Gameboy. It didn't have color nor a backlight but that didn't stop Nintendo's wunderkind from dominating the portable gaming landscape. It wasn't until 1998 that the Gameboy Color arrived on the scene. The GBC didn't have a backlight either.

Fast forward 13 years and technology has gotten to the point where games like Persona can now be played on portables such as the Playstation Portable. In living color and backlit to light up the night. Atlus upgrades the game with new cinemas, visual updates, brand new dungeon levels, and user-friendly options such as a quick save feature. A stylish new intro is also featured in the game which is replete with stark, dark imagery with a peppy background track sung by Yumi Kawamura. The chipper song is designed to provide contrast against the morose visuals. Shoji Meguro provided director and composer services while Kazuma Kaneko served as art director.

The heroes of Persona are a group of high school students who all possess special abilities that allow them to utilize offensive magic. Battles are fought on an isometric platform with two sides arrayed against each other while melee attacks and magic blasts ripple through the ranks. The PSP update doesn't feature voice acting but the cast of characters do make yelping sounds and other utterances when fighting enemy agents. The first production of the game will ship with a bonus Persona Soundtrack CD which was given away in 30% ratio from the publisher.
