Greetings, citizens of Earth — I’m here to talk about, uh… Citizens of Earth. Errr, right! Today, ATLUS and indie developer Eden Industries will put you in the role of the second-highest bureaucrat on the planet, the Vice President of Earth. But don’t let the politics fool you, because there aren’t any in the game. It’s a retro-inspired RPG through and through, where as the VP you have to go around and figure out why the world has gone mad.
Paging all PlayStation Experience attendees! This is ATLUS speaking! (Well, I guess I’m more of a representative.) If you’re like me and tend to lose all your money on that darn fish slot machine, then you probably want to take a break from all the Vegas hubbub and play some video games!
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is the sequel to the fighting game spin-off of the Persona franchise, Persona 4 Arena, but it’s so, so much more than just an update. Characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4 are thrust into a fighting tournament, which continues the story after the conclusion of the RPG Persona 4. This story is canon for the Persona franchise, and takes place almost immediately after the conclusion of P4A, which itself is just a few weeks after the end of Persona 4.
I’ve gotten your emails, your tear-stained letters, your carrier pigeons, and the erstwhile smoke signal. We’ve read them, and we — finally — can fully and officially reply to them with the best kind of confirmation ever: ATLUS is bringing three new Persona games to the PlayStation family starting in fall of 2014.
As the hero in Conception II, you’ll quickly learn that the seven heroines you meet and begin to form relationships with are an important aspect for surviving the game’s deadly labyrinths. But in addition to being a strong combatant by your side, the heroines also help you create an army of Star Children warriors through a magic ritual. Those Star Children are what we’re going to focus on in today’s Conception II update.
