Persona 4 is coming after all to the United States, on December 9th 2008. Persona 4 will be hitting Japanese stores in a matter of days for the Playstation 2 console. ATLUS had a successful showing with Persona 3 and Persona 3 FES so expect Persona 4 to be well received despite being late in the PS2′s tenure.
P4 will be coming with a music CD for just 39$. Each character can acquire Personae in this one and to the delight of many Persona 3 fans, you can control your allies in this one! Not being able to control characters like Yukari and Mitsuru led to a lot of problems in Persona 3, with them wasting turns on Ice Break Wind Break and Mind Charge for example. In turn this will lighten up the difficulty a bit but this could be compensated for by ATLUS with having tougher bosses with more potent attacks, higher attack power, etc.
