Persona 3 Portable Unveiled

chidorin

Acclaimed PS2 RPG Persona 3 has been given a surprise adaptation to the PSP, along with some interesting changes.

The port is due November 1st 2009, and will feature a number of changes, the most notable of which is that the protagonist will be a female instead of the previous male.

Additionally, an entirely new character is promised, looking to be a male version of Elizabeth; some gameplay additions in the form of new difficulty levels are also promised.

Whether this will incorporate the Fes expansion is not clear…

    i don't know why they're doing this so soon. and adding in new characters just changes the continuity of the storyline too much which is a little annoying. i don't have a psp anyway so its not like it matters.

    Nooooo, well... enough, from what I can see on the images, they gave a lot of attention to the female character, but, the male character is still in there (and I just saw some other information and it says you'll be able to choose your gender), so, we should be able (I hope) to use some option so we can choose our MC gender, and I'm sure they will add an "enhanced" version of the original music. And as you can see an slightly cooler version of the original MC.

    To Sony et al: Port your games to PC or shove it.

    You wanted to be wrong but actually you're right. ^_^
    I ignore console titles if I can't play them with an emulator.

    Wait, so if we played with a female protagonist...would we still have a Babe Hunt? Or would it be a Guy Hunt with the girls?

    I would assume so since jrpgs are staunchly anti-gay. Female MCs can look forward to dating Akihiko, Shinjiro, Junpei, Kenji, and maybe even Ken (maybe not "dating" but an onee-chan type thing.)

    I think the biggest change would be how it'll completely change the dynamic of the group. The MC being a girl would not be hanging out with Junpei and Akihiko, but with Mitsuru, Yukari, and Fuuka. Alot of scenes will need to be rewritten to suit a female MC. It'll be almost a whole new game.

    Be interesting to see what they do with it

    "Alot of scenes will need to be rewritten to suit a female MC. It’ll be almost a whole new game.

    seconded.

    this will be , like, a whole new game !

    honestly, even in my wildest dreams, I never thought ATLUS will be brave enough to do this X3

    But... on the other side, I don't like the idea of the whole P3 story gets rewritten. But the female prota story will be considered non-canon though, so I guess no need to be so serious bout it :P

    I'm all about girls in anime, and I don't give a damna bout the male cast. This is especially true in dating and life simulator games. But even I have to admit, this is epic awesome. I always love when a company realises that if people like me exist, then the anti-type to me exists as well. I know a girl who is all about the dudes and to hell with the chicks, so this will be christmas for her, lol. Now this is what I call, equality. XD

    This is too right! There's a whole lot of female Persona fans out there, and though I know it is called "role-playing" for a reason, I'm sure a good number of them would definitely like to play as a girl (not to mention the guys who are into playing girls, but that hardly needs to be said.)

    Well... I think there will be a lot of Storyline changes if we play as the girl...

    - Yakushima event -- Minato hugging Yukari -- THAT's GOTTA BE CHANGED ! (honestly, I don't liek Yuri, no offense)
    - Hot Spring event... now I wonder what's gonna be changed :D
    - and... there's so much Social Link with males, so there;s gonna be a lot of option for the boyfriend? WOW !
    - erm... I wonder what's teh ultimate persona -_-" (it'd be strange if Messiah became a female)
    - etc.

    RLY INTERESTED !

    Hah, persona 3/4 is just for retarded little weebo's anyways. Go play the real ones, or keep looking forward to this version, essentially a version for girls and faggots.

    By the way...

    the MC can be now female, so will Aigis still has affection for her? (OMG Yuri)

    and... if it has The Answer like in FES, wouldn't it be strange if Yukari is jealous to the fact that Aigis inherited the Wild Card ability??

    woah, so many story points gotta be changed.
    if this turns out to be a success, Atlus, you did a great job.

    but if it turned out to be Fail, then Atlus, Persona 3's name will become REALLY dirty, beware...

    Not really. To be honest my first thought upon seeing the male version of Elizabeth was:"So that's what kanji would look like in elizabeth's garb."

    Hmm... I thought Bro-Lizabeth looks like GARcher, minus the black skin...

    It'd be kewl if he can use Unlimited Blade Works to PWN us instead of the 9999 Megidolaon LOL.

    Why are they holding fucking cards instead of guns?
    And why add a female character? The main character was a straight badass. They don't actually think girl play these games do they?

    Apparently, the thing of the game is based on the butterfly effect or something to that extent. Kind of a 'what if' as far as the gender goes.

    I'm guessing the female MC's persona would be Eurydice (also known as Agriope)which was Orpheus wife well it kinda makes sense

    Female protagonist? That makes sense. In the art book, it seemed like there were plans for one.

    Why does Bro-lizabeth look like Kanji oh well hoping for cameos

    it probably won't a UMD only holds 1.9gigs while dvds hold 4 gigs, I am really surprised that they are trying this with the massive space limitations.

    Hell, if the old Social Links stay intact and the female protagonist has the potential to turn the ladies of SEES gay, I'll buy three copies.

    If they changed the protagonist to a female one, then shouldn't they change Aegis too? Anyway it still looks awesome, but I hope they will develop a new Persona game for next gen.

    Note the picture of Aegis. Notice anything... interesting... with the design?
