Similar games to Persona 4 in Europe?

#1 Posted by MrMuscle (446 posts) -

So ive started watching the endurance run and i am up to part 85 and ive really started enjoying this. I never though i would so im kinda suprised. I wanted to play it myself but found that Golden isnt out in Europe, and I dont have a Vita anyway.

Do you guys know of any similar games available in Europe? I have the following consoles: 360, 3DS, Pc and iPad/iPhone. I also have a PS3 but a friend is borrowing it so hopeully i dont need that one.

Im thinking maybe Cathrine? Yet another game i never thought id play, but Persona 4 got under my skin! I do like RPG but have never played any real JRPG. So i would appriciate some advice.

Catherine is more of a puzzle game than an RPG. Try out the SMT main series, some really good RPGs there. Check out Persona 3 as well.

Persona 3.

The SMT series in general seems pretty unique.

yeah persona 3 is about as close to persona 4 as you'll get.  Or play Persona 4 on an emulator on your PC.

Catherine is not an RPG. But if you don't have a PS2 then your options are somewhat limited.

If you had a PS2 you could just play OG Persona 4. Or Persona 3 FES, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 1/2.

Or get a Vita and import Golden. Like I did. Or get a Vita and wait a month till Golden comes out here. Like I probably should have done.

@MrMuscle: Catherine is well worth checking out, but it's more like a Visual Novel with puzzle gameplay.

Used PSP's are cheap nowadays, get one and a copy of Persona 3 Portable.

Thanks alot guys. I just remembered that i do infact own a PsP. After an hour searching i found it and its power supply. It booted up and everything. But when i tried to updating it (there was no PSN store on it) i saw that the memory card in it was 32 mb :D I dont think i have used it much ever. So tomorrow im buying a bigger card because it seems there are infact some Persona games on the European PSN. Awesome!

Downloaded and started playing Persona 1 this weekend. Its an interesting game and im enjoying it. But its definately making me read up a lot to understand what im supposed to be doing. Getting cards and fusing is especially confusing. But so far I am doing allright with the Personas i start of with. Hope i make it thru the game eventually, though i think it will take quite some time.
