Famitsu Persona 3 Portable AtlusFamitsu is amazing. Let’s hear a big round of applause for the magazine that revealed that a PSP port of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 is on the way. Not only that, but said port isn’t just your standard port, it looks as though it’s going to additional content that will at least convince female Persona fans to buy it. The protagonist of Persona 3 Portable is going to be female. Or, there’ll be an option to choose a female protagonist. Details are a bit sketchy, but the Famitsu article shows the new female protagonist next to Minato, the PS2 Persona 3 hero, and there are two versions of Orpheus – male and female.

Only a little information has leaked out in the article, and NeoGAF members were kind enough to translate it for all.. For example, all party members can now be manually controlled, like in Persona 4. While the female route will be all new, and include a male Elisabeth counterpart, the male route will also contain additional content. The game is also supposedly the FES version, has five levels of difficulty and has an expanded soundtrack. NeoGAF member duckroll uploaded a scan of the magazine image, which you can see on the right.

The game is out November 1, 2009 in Japan on both UMD and the PlayStation Network. Based on the Persona series track-record, we’ll be seeing an English version as well. Atlus hasn’t failed us yet. The only release we’ve missed in all these years is Persona 2: Innocent Sin. Who knows, with all of these PSP ports, maybe we’ll see a Persona 2 complete edition with Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment bundled together in a single game. Please Atlus?

What a great start to the day. The news definitely made my afternoon. The only thing better is if a PSP port of Persona 4 with a female protagonist was announced as well. That’d be just the motivation I need to finally finish Mitsuo’s dungeon.
