The recently announced Persona 4 has been given a release date here in the States for December 9th. This is rather surprising considering that the Directors cut/conclusion to Persona 3, Persona 3 FES, was just recently released State-side two months ago. For a title that has not been released in Japan yet this is amazingly fast localization time.
Persona 4 is the follow up to Persona 3, which was regarded as many as the best RPG of last year. Persona 3 FES took almost an entire year to localize after it was released in Japan as well as having the distinct honor of being the first Directors cut of an RPG to be released in the States ever.
