Persona 4 is set to release December 9th. Yes. Very yes.

This release will come with a bonus soundtrack CD, which is totally awesome because if the intro is any indication (see below) it will be in-the-car-on-the-way-to-work worthy. The game releases in Japan in 5 days, so we'll have more information about the game soon. Word on the street is that some changes include having control over all 4 party members and replacing Wait with Defend, along with a new way to summoning personas (no more evoker, it's all about crushing cards now). The game also takes place in a rural town, as opposed to 3's urban setting.


Here's the intro for the game (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko3EC5RvMIw); it'll have to tide you over until December (unless you import... if so, I hate you).

December 9?! AH NOOOO! Thats too long of a wait! I can't wait to play it especially when I saw the trailer! You were right about what you said about the game although I don't know if it is allowed to control all 4 characs. BUt I like it the way it is, it's a good challenge. You really have to consider what your teammates are goin to do.

Wait, the game releases in Japan in five days?! alright! *heading to the phone to call Ken* I have a Japanese friend, I hope he's planning to visit his hometown! He lives near me.

This came in the Atlus newsletter. I spy a weather marker where the moon phases used to be~ I wonder if the weather will have an affect on the shadows like the moon did... The town looks really cool, and is it just me or is the camera at a different angle than Persona 3? Looks a lot more over-the-shoulder.

I wonder if they'll go back to the old Persona 1 and Persona 2 style? And let the game be a bit less constricting like 3.

Persona 3 was far too boring personally, hopefully 4 will be a bit more livelier than "Crawl Dungeon. Go to school. Social link/increase stat. Sleep/Dungeon Crawl. Ad Infinitum."

I wish. But it seems they're staying with the P3 style.

Official website (http://www.atlus.com/persona4/) is up. It has a new trailer on it, and a bit about the story and main character. Not much information yet, though.

The game will definitely be from the P3 forumula; you can see S.Links ranking up in the trailer.

Story

Inaba—a quiet town in a rural Japan. A normal teenager arrives at the station to begin his year-long stay in the countryside, only to be welcomed by the news of a dead TV announcer. Shortly after, another body appears, mysteriously hung from the top of a telephone pole. The cause of the death is unknown, with no leads on the suspect… As the peaceful community is thrown into turmoil, the urban youth and his classmates wander into a strange, surreal place covered by thick fog…

Main Character

He recently moved to the countryside to live with his uncle and cousin. After awakening to his potential as a Persona user, he opens the door to a mysterious world.
