Atlus U.S.A. today announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 will be available for the PlayStation 2 across North America in summer 2007, packaged in a special collector’s box with a tantalizing art book and CD soundtrack. Enormously successful in Japan, P3 is the newest RPG from the publisher of the acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei series. Fans have waited eight long years since the release of Persona 2, and Atlus is rewarding their patience by rolling out the red carpet for its successor.
“Persona 3 is the most exciting, challenging, and ambitious title in the SMT series to date!” said Yu Namba, Project Lead for P3. “While still faithful to its roots, it takes the series in a bold new direction with the implementation of the Social Link system, where your relationship with not just party members but also a huge cast of characters is critical to your success!”
