    This game keeps looking better and better (Literally). I hope it gets finished soon, so work on the localization can start.

    Y'know Persona 5 might make it on the Vita as well as the PS3 (probably not but who knows since P3 was released later on the PSP)

    There's also a Persona being made for the 3DS (and a normal SMT) before the 3DS was released, so that could mean that Atlus can make Persona 5 multi-plat for like several platforms (not portable ones, but home systems).

    Anyways, the graphs look nice, but what I'm looking forward to the most is the new girl.

    It looks awful. The whole point of the story is for Inaba to be foggy, lifeless and mysterious.

    They've also removed some things in the background and made the CG look cheap.

    Edit: And obviously Persona 5 will come to Vita, 3DS? Doubt it.

    Never said Persona 5 will definitely be on the Vita but might.

    Gambia, The
    got to agree here, the background doesnt really look good, too photorealistic for all the anime faces and stuff

    The characters looks better (less blurry), but I prefer the old background.

    Well, it's only judging from 2 pictures.

    The upgrades don't appear to be too major, but they look nice enough. I guess this will add all the more incentive for fans to replay this game.

    At least it's portable with a bit of an upgrade :) Does anyone know if the engine/gameplay has been altered in any way?

    I agree with the second part, but it's still kind of nice to have a different perspective in this version. The new backgrounds just seem to suit the vita. Stuff like being able to see what's on the bulletin boards gives you something kind of cool and new to look forward to. If I want to see the old graphics, I'll just play the ps2 version.

    ...See, all of these nice things just makes me want that Vita even more. And I don't think I've even played Persona 4 yet.

    Excuse me while I go outside a beg for money (lolnojob).

    Colours are too bright, everything is too sharp. The sharpness is just highlighting the lack of polygons. The new Vita shots look a hell of a lot less realistic than the PS2 shots.
