If you look over the past, oh, five pages of the thread, you'll likely notice we're on a Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne kick at the moment.
So if you have a copy, feel free to help remake/destroy the world.
We've got a few months to enjoy it before Raiho & co arrive.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA â€” JANUARY 27, 2009 â€” Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that Shin Megami TenseiÂ®: Devil Summoner 2â„¢: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon, a new chapter in the stunningly original action RPG series for PlayStationÂ®2 computer entertainment system, is making its way to North America on May 12th. Improved over its predecessor in every way, Devil Summoner 2 is an action RPG breath of fresh air, with a deep, easy-to-control combat system, nearly two hundred demons to negotiate with, collect, and fuse, and a variety of strategies to employ and master. Experience a 1920â€™s Tokyo bustling with cases to solve, criminals to bring to justice, and the threat of the mysterious King Abaddon looming on the horizon.
For a limited time, and out of an exceptionally small fixed number of units, North American gamers will have even more reason to pick up the game that raced to the top of the Japanese game sales charts upon its release. Each and every launch copy of Devil Summoner 2 will feature a rare Raiho plushie doll (not available for sale separately). Only a small amount of these rare bundles will be assembled, and each package will be numbered to ensure its rarity and collectible value. Should there be future print runs of the game, they will ship without the Raiho collectible. Act before they're gone!
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon is scheduled to negotiate its way into retailers on May 12, 2009 with an MSRP of $39.99. Each and every copy of the gameâ€™s limited quantity launch will ship with a rare Raiho collectible plushie.
About Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha versus King Abaddon:
A new threat to Japan's Capital calls for the return of its case-solving, tube-slinging Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha the 14th. When a woman walks into the Narumi Detective Agency and asks to find a man, Raidou's boss is reluctant to accept, but soon it's clear there's more to the case than it seems on the surface. It isn't long before Raidou is on the trail of crooked gamblers, masked ninja, and strange insects... a trail leading him inexorably to the mysterious King Abaddon.
â€¢ Massively upgraded battle systemâ€” Advancements to the battle mechanics include a MAG balancing system, dodge and hide abilities, and the ability to command two demons in combat. Use the retooled Weapon Alchemy system to create new swords with unique special attacks.
â€¢ Deeper demon integrationâ€” Demon negotiation returns with more than twice the number of demons to attempt to recruit to your side. Create more powerful demons through fusion and skill transfer. Control two demons in battle and choose from more tactical options.
â€¢ Phenomenal creative teamâ€” The rich environment of this Taisho-era Japan comes to life with the character designs of Kazuma Kaneko and the musical score of Shoji Meguro.

And without a doubt, he's bringing friends.
According to info from a magazine called GameWave, a remake/port of Persona 1 should be headed to the PSP on April 30th in Japan.
Time once again for positive thinking, because if any game in the Persona series needs an update, it's this one:
Unless of course you miss this:
Persona 4 is the newest entry in the long-running Persona series, which is itself a side-story of the even longer running Megami Tensei series.
What sets P4 apart from its predecessors is that rather than taking place in the big city, Persona 4 takes place in the quiet little town of Inaba.
As a transfer student, you may find yourself somewhat overwhelmed by the wide variety of places to go and things to do.
You're on your own there.
However, there is one thing comrade can assist you with.
From the best-selling author of critically acclaimed books such as "A Lady Killer's Guide to Gekkoukan" and
"Fine Dining in Feudal Japan On A 5-Yen Budget", comes
The Lady-Killer's Guide To InabaÂ©
Much like all transfer students with a striking appearance and the ability to call forth an army of demons, you may find yourself assaulted by the female populace with no earthly clue of how to determine a favorite.
Let comrade Rasputin be your guide, yes?
Of course, those you will be operating with in battle should be your utmost
priority, both in terms of strategic and easily accessible value, so it's only natural we begin with them.Chie SatonakaArcana:

The type of girl you would generally hang out with, not so much date, but you couldn't find a more loyal ally in battle.
Besides, she kicks enemies into the stratosphere for you.Yukiko AmagiArcana

One can always count on Yukiko to brighten up a situation. As a bonus, she is also a reliable study date, and you know her employment future is secure. Just be prepared to order out for dinner constantly.Rise 'Risette' KujikawaArcana

: Unwanted attentionFriendship Appeal:
You do not pursue a relationship with Rise. Rise pursues one with you.
The question is whether or not you return these affections.
Turning her down won't make you a bad person, but you will be off to a fine start.[October Spoilers]
You've been warned.

An uncommon potential relationship, to be sure, but you will certainly have a bright one on your hands, and maturity is hardly an undesirable trait.
You certainly won't be fearing for home security.

I expect she would be quite loyal, if nothing else.(Alternately: )AyaneArcana

: Uninteresting Persona, short-haired competitionFriendship Appeal:
This is a dangerous one. If given the opportunity for a relationship, I doubt it would be optional.
If you upset a woman like this, she is liable to destroy an entire continent as retaliation.
It is unwise to turn against one who collects demons for fun.
That is all the information I have for the moment. Perhaps time will unveil new faces who I could not gather adequate data of.
Until then, you may find this archived material
Now then, I have other business to attend to. I should not keep Anastasia waiting.
Never fear, I'll be back for the sequel.
Let's positive posting, as they say.
As always, you're also encouraged to discuss other games in the SMT series, particularly ones involving charismatic dark summoners.
