Persona 4 dated for early March

Stylised and original RPG for PS2.

Square Enix plans to release PS2 role-playing game Persona 4 here on 13th March. And the PAL box will include a special soundtrack CD with 24 songs on.

Persona 4 has a brand new plot for the supernatural detectives to get to the bottom of, plus lots more dungeons to delve into and bosses to batter. Square Enix reckons the whole thing will take around 60 hours to finish.

The stylised art influenced by manga and Japanese pop culture returns, blending to create a world refreshingly devoid of orcs and goblins and robes and wizard hats.

We're big fans of the series; we awarded Persona 3 a 9/10, and called the RPG one of the finest on the whole PS2. High praise indeed, although a love of turn-based battles and a strong narrative helps.
