It's a solid start for Atlus' 3DS RPG, which should have appeal to both Persona and Etrian Odyssey fans. For comparison, Etrian Odyssey 4 sh...

Lucky Persona fans have been waiting patiently at E3 to get posters signed by Shigenori Soejima, the art director and character designer for games like Persona 3, 4 and Q. If you love the art in Persona - like any sane person should - Soejima is the man to thank.

It's kind of fun to anticipate special edition 3DS XL designs, except for when they don't end up reaching Western audiences. Two new XL handhelds were shown off this week, wearing the influences of the upcoming Pokemon Battle Trozei and Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, respectively. Serebii po...
