Three words: User generated quests. It gets better: the Climax Theater's "Persona Thief" quest is set in Karukozaka High School. The game was already really popular amongst the fandom, now it's a friggin' must-have.
Persona 3 coming out for the PSP? ...with a girl version? AND ROMANTIC SOCIAL LINKS WITH AKIHIKO AND SHINJIRO? AND AN EQUALLY ATTRACTIVE GENDER FLIPPED ELIZABETH? And the fangirls rejoiced.
A wham announcement by Atlus: Persona 4 remake for VITA! Featuring new character Marie and a lot more features.
Yay, P4 is being ported to the PS3! note Boo, it's not the Golden version.
But that pales in comparison of the announcement of Persona 4 Arena, a fighting Persona 4 game, which is a direct sequel of Persona 4 (taking 2 Months after it), features Persona 3 characters (thus far Aigis confirmed), but best of all...MadebyArc System Works!! Not only that, console versions will also receive a BlazBlue-style story mode, so it's not just pure brawler unlike the previous attempt with Sengoku Basara (Cross)! Awwwwww yeah...
And to make more rejoicing, add the two other fan-favorite from Persona 3, Akihiko Sanada and Mitsuru Kirijo, all in newdesign which can count as a Fanservice Pack already.
With all the hype surrounding Persona 4 (movies, updated rereleases, sequels) the Persona 3 fans were somewhat sad that 3 was being neglected. And then came The Stinger at the end of 4's movie - the calendar rewinds two years, and a shot of the previous game's protagonist appears. The fandom completely lost it.
