Previously we reported on a site set up by Atlus that might have been teasing an upcoming Persona release, and it seems that speculation was spot on. According to Famitsu, Persona 4 is heading to the Playstation Vita and will have a Spring 2012 Japan release. The new game, entitled Persona 4: The Golden, will feature a new character, new cutscenes, and 1.5 times the amount of voice over content than the previous 2009 PS2 release contained. The game will also utilize the online capabilities of Vita.
In other Persona news, Famitsu also reported that a Persona 4 fighter is in the works – being developed by the BazBlue team from Arc System Works. It will see a spring launch in arcades before landing on the PS3 and Xbox 360 next summer.
