Atlus premiered the full trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable for PSP system, the upcoming handheld release of one of the highest rated RPGs of all-time. It serves to call attention to the numerous additions and enhancements the portable version of the game introduces, such as the addition of a playable female protagonist complete with new social links and special events. "Persona 3 Portable is a game that is full of many amazing things," mused Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales. "It's full of memorable characters thrust into the middle of a riveting, original narrative laced with themes of duality, the never-ending battle between good and evil. It's full of options for the player, of how to spend their time, of who to befriend and develop relationships with. And the PSP system version in particular is full of a number of refinements and added content. It just makes sense that we'd release a full video trailer to celebrate a game that's full of so much RPG goodness."
Unique among its competitors, Persona 3 Portable is laden with stark contrasts. By day, players attend school, juggle interpersonal relationships, and even court a romance or two. By night, they are tasked with the lofty goal of saving the world from encroaching Shadows and darkness, having to fight off a grotesque menagerie of otherworldly creatures. Featuring the addition of a new player-controlled female protagonist who offers players a fresh new perspective to one of gaming's most inventive narratives, P3P dramatically increases the replayability of a game already renowned for its length and depth. Numerous additional improvements and enhancements, like reduced load times and one-button menu shortcuts, serve to streamline the experience for optimal handheld RPG enjoyment. SMT: Persona 3 Portable is currently scheduled for release on July 6, 2010. Fans who pre-order will receive a collectible Junpei baseball cap. This bonus is available exclusively from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and GameStop/EB Games (in stores and online in the United States and Canada), and only while limited supplies last.
