It's not Persona, but...

Did this one slip under the radar for most? A shame, because it's really pretty awesome.

I was giddy with delight when I went the Chaos route and people in my party started leaving due to conflicts of interest. Good riddance!

no UK date as of yet, bit gutted as I wanteda decent new RPG to get stuck into and this looked perfect.


especially after being to tokyo and recognising the locations.

I wonder if most people know that Persona is just a spin-off series.

I've got it. Arrived today from the USA. I'm in the UK, and just imported it, cause DS games do that. Anyway, its epic. Guess what:
Death Clock = AMAZING IDEA. I really hope they do more with it later in the game.

And yeah, ignorance is afoot in many people on this site, thinking everything is related to persona. This game is more similar to personal than the others in some ways, with the chatting to people, the investigating at the beginning, but not in any of the battles, the demons or anything. I'm not a fan of the battle gameplay, but I'll get used to it. I prefer the persona style, the decide your attack at your turn, not the everyone decide their attacks and the rest happens automatically, giving you no chance to counter. But thats just preference.

Given the fact that its a shin megami tensei game, you should. Was it 2 years after japan that europe finally got persona 3? I dunno, but they aren't very good with that shit. But yeah, DS is region free. DO IT!

An excellent game, though I'm taking my time with it.  I'm still on Day 4 of my first playthrough.

not where i live. Thanks to Persona, the words "Shin Megami Tensei" mean "Its a game like Persona so lets buy it !" Had to go to 3 different stores till i finally found one that had copies of this game

This game is awesome.
It's one of the best RPG's I've played since The World Ends With You.

@JJOR64: Obviously, or else it wouldn't be called "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona"
