JRPGs are often considered a genre of their own RPG fans and out of these JRPGs there is one franchise which is often regarded as one of the best around. That franchise happens to be the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona and it has been many years since a title has been released under the Persona name, in fact it has been four years since the fourth title in the series was released on the PlayStation 2.
In what can be seen as perhaps a first for the PlayStation 3, Atlus is going to be applying a region lock to Persona 4 Arena on that console. This means that even if you import a Japanese copy of the title early, it will be unplayable unless you have a legitimate Japanese PlayStation 3.
Check out our review for Gungnir here on PSP - Over the past seven years Atlus USA has been bringing SRPG fans a very interesting series that has been developed in Japan by Sting. This series just happens to be called Dept. Heaven and over the course of its run we have seen four titles of the series appear on our shores, the most recent being Knights in the Nightmare which was seen as a rather large success and well received by fans of the genre.
