Once again, popular magazine Famitsu continues to feed us on news. This time it is Persona 4's turn to be exposed in no less than five pages for this edition. Since its surprising announcement as a Playstation 2 title, Atlus confirms that its next little gem will be very near Persona 3 from a gameplay perspective. Click for to know more.
As for the changes, the action will take place in the countryside with the principal themes being horror, suspense and mystery. The meteo will also play a determining role in the events that will unfold, by example when there's fog a murder automatically happens within the community. Not changing from its old tricks, this fourth entry in the series will feature alternative endings, over 180 Personas and 60-70 hours of game play.
Another good news is the developers completed 85% of the game and are saying it is 1.5x bigger than Persona 3. The release date in Japan is set to July 10, 2008.

Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (4 Hours ago)
Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
