Atlus USA has just announced that a remake of the first Persona is coming to North America on the PlayStation Portable. Persona is a rare game and will cost you a grip of money over at Ebay and Amazon, so people who just recently got into the Persona franchise can now have a chance to play the first installment at a reasonable price. Persona PSP has all original FMVs remade, along with rearranged soundtrack by Shoji Meguro, new difficulty settings and shorter load times. As a fan of Shin Megami Tensei, I’m very excited. Are you?
