The Persona series tends to engender plenty of fandom, thanks to its engrossing role-playing tales that mix supernatural elements with great aesthetics and unique social interactions with other characters. And publisher Atlus certainly helps keep fans excited, thanks to elaborate special editions that include stellar extras and slick packaging. That is once more the case with Persona 4 Golden, the upcoming PlayStation Vita re-release of the beloved 2008 PlayStation 2 release, which itself features enhanced story content and the ability to call in an online ally for help.
While the game itself will be available in a standard edition for $39.99, early-adopting die-hards can shell out an additional $30 to grab the Solid Gold Premium Edition, which includes a game-themed Hori Hard Pouch for storing the PlayStation Vita, a Hori Face Cover that snaps into place to keep the screen safe when not in use, a protective system skin, and various Persona 4 stickers.
Both versions will be released this fall in North America, though it's not the only recent franchise release: Persona 4 Arena, a well-received fighting game based on the series, launched earlier this month on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
