The enhanced PSP remake of demonic RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Persona will be released as a digital download through the PlayStation Network on September 22, the same day the physical version hits retail, publisher Atlus announced today. nope "All of you first adopters of the upcoming PSPgo System can christen your new handheld with a quality RPG experience," the company said of the digital release. The PSPgo, which can only play downloaded games, hits North America on October 1 at $250.
