For those who missed Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 on the PlayStation 2, or those who simply fancy playing the RPG again, Atlus has confirmed that Persona 4 Golden will come to North American Vitas this fall. It was expected that the the jazzed-up port would come to North America when it was announced for Japan back in August 2011, but hey! Facts!

Persona 4 Golden packs "remastered" visuals, 50% more voicework, new Personas, "online rescue feature," new story events with a new character, new anime custscenes, plus "tons of fan suggestions and tweaks." Lots of shiny newness, then.

Past Persona revamps were for the PSP, but Atlus has made the jump to Vita now.

Should you fancy more P4 sooner than fall, there's always the, ah, fighting game Persona 4 Arena, coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this summer from BlazBlue developer Arc System Works.

      This game alone would justify me buying a Vita, well if I didn't already have one that is.

      Consider it pre-ordered.

      Persona 3 is a great RPG and I'm now playing the new one that released for the PSP last year on my Vita and it's a great experience. (The load times are almost instant compared to what it was on the PSP)

      Persona 4 Gold is going to be great on the Vita - I'm hoping the damn thing starts to get a great library this summer, fall, winter cause it's really a great piece of hardware and has the potential to be an amazing device.

      I'm sure if Sony hasn't gotten it in the works yet but if they get Kingdom Hearts 3 on the Vita it will sell units huge - look what Dragon Quest did for the DS.
