In a genre populated by spiky-haired protagonists, over-sized swords and rag-tag groups of adventurers, the Shin Megami Tensei series made a name for itself by taking an incredibly unique and considerably darker approach to the traditional role-playing formula in the franchise's North American debut, Revelations: Persona for the original Playstation. While Persona was met with both critical acclaim and a cult following of fans at release, it was often overlooked in favor of the Final Fantasies and Dragon Quests of the world. Thankfully, the good people at Atlus are bringing the game that started it all to the PSP in this complete overhaul of the original Persona title, including a brand new user interface, cinematic cut-scenes, never-before-seen dungeons, and an entirely new localization from the ground up. If you're a fan of the Megaten franchise, or if you simply missed it the first time around, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the September 22nd release of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for the PSP. --Will Herring
