Adopt your Persona: Persona 4 here now! Search for the Golden Fleece - Rise of the Argonauts, key buddies - Dragon Ball x One Piece Key Rings, Bunny Band Girl Haruhi, Final Fantasy Trading Arts & more!



The continuation of the dark Persona/Megami Tensei RPG series has finally crossed oceans and reached the English speaking gamers. While Persona 3 and Persona 3 FES make references to Greek mythology, this time, inspiration is taken from local Japanese folklore. Instead of featuring the deities in kimonos and elaborate hairstyles, see the cool and pop re-imaging of the gods in Persona 4.

From the publisher: Shortly after an urban youth begins a year-long stay in the countryside town of Inaba, the rural town's peace is shattered by a horrific murder that leaves no clues or suspects.

As the lone incident develops into a series of bizarre crimes, he discovers that only he and his friends have the power to solve the baffling case, bring those responsible to justice, and restore harmony to his new home.

The element of suspense is vital to the fourth installment of this contemporary RPG series. To clear the game, the players need to solve the string of mysterious murder cases that are happening in town and figure out the real enemy.

To reward the fans who have been waiting so patiently for the localization of the game. All copies come with a soundtrack CD and to those who bought this first edition, they will be given the Visual Data artbook.

All character settings, both used and unused are collected and compiled into the Visual Data artbook while the CD album contains all the catchy tunes as well as eery ones in the game.

Persona 4 is available as a US version for PlayStation2™ for US$ 44.90 only.




To the people who prefer to play the game in its original language, the Japanese version is still available for US$ 68.90 only.

With the large array of shadows to battle and a multi-ending system, the game spawned quite a number of guides and art books:
