I saw that there was no Persona thread , so here is one!
Go wikipedia quote!
- Quote :
- Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, known in Japan as PERSONA (ペルソナ Perusona?) is a series of role-playing video games developed and published by Atlus. The series is a spin-off of the Megami Tensei series which focuses on demon summoners. However, the Persona series centers around groups of teenagers who have the ability to summon facets of their psyche, known as Personas, into being. The game draws many elements from Jungian psychology and various Jungian archetypes. The first game in the series is called Megami Ibunroku (女神異聞録?) in Japan which translates to "Record of the Goddess' Strange Tales," denoting a side story or alternate universe. The series underwent a drastic change in design during Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 which introduced elements of simulation games into the series which was continued in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. Each title in the series utilizes a different method to summon Personas such as Evokers in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 and Tarot cards in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. While the North American localizations of the Persona series all carry the Shin Megami Tensei label, the Persona series is actually a spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei main series.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
I was PERSONA
lly introduced to the series with Persona 3 Portable on the PSP and later was amazed with Persona 4 (which is coming to PSvita as Persona 4 the Golden)!
