Persona 4 to Personalise the Vita in 2012

As pretty much expected, a new version of Persona 4 is being crafted for the PS Vita and will launch in early 2012. Subtitled "The Golden", the developers have gone the Vita route as they felt they were losing too much content when cramming games into the PSP editions.

UPDATE: New pics out.

With the previous editions appear in PSOne form on the PSN Store, and Persona 3 being made available in digital download form soon, hopefully the whole family will be reunited on Vita.

UPDATE: Somesone has photographed the magazine spread and put it up as a YouTube video, worth a quick peek:

Features in the game will include:

  • 3G and Wi-Fi support
  • New event scenes
  • Added Personas
  • Added character outfits
  • New character Marie, voiced by Kana Hanazawa. She's a "mysterious girl" who appears before the main characters.
  • Additional anime movie scenes, with new voices
  • More vocal content
  • New song for the opening movie
