Atlus is dropping Persona onto the PSP in America on Sept. 22

So if you're an RPG gamer, you might know a little something about the Shin Megami Tensei games.  Made by Atlus, these games are rare and obscure - almost mythological - on the Western side of the world due to their low print numbers and tremendous price inflation.  It's not exactly new for Atlus to reprint their out-of-print games (this has been done in the last year with both Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga, both for the Playstation 2).  However, the original Revelations: Persona is far and above the most looked-for game in the Shin Megami Tensei lineup, and it's second only to Tactics Ogre in the entire Atlus collection.  It wouldn't be at all uncommon for a complete copy of the original PSX hit to sell for over $100, sometimes going as high as $150.  So imagine the shock when Atlus announced that they would be porting their second-hand hit to the PSP, placing the game back on store shelves and selling it at a $40 price tag.  Further more, Atlus is also going to be putting the game up on the Playstation Network for $40.  Now the game that was once considered impossible to find is going to be in regular print and available at any local Gamestop/EB Games.

The PSP version is going to contain a completely relocalized script, a new (or redesigned) user interface, new musical tracks in the soundtrack, balance adjustments, all-new animation sequences by the animator of Devil May Cry 3, and new voice overs.  In addition to all that, the retail version (as opposed to the PSN version) will contain the entire game's two-disk soundtrack.  In traditional Atlus fashion, however, the soundtrack will only be included for a limited time.

The game is launching on both in retail and on the PSN simultaneously on September 22.
