Persona 4 is a gripping new chapter in the Persona universe. Integrating good old investigative mission gameplay with an innovative social element, Persona 4 is set in the rural town of Inaba in the Japanese countryside. Your character is there as a guest in the house of his uncle and cousin, as a series of mysterious deaths hits Inaba, leaving the quiet, small town in shock. Only you and your team of gifted supernatural detectives replete with their hidden powers can reveal the truth. Together, you must try to find the attacker (or attackers) before they kill again.

The structure of Persona 4 dictates that your character must live a double life and remember to keep a sense of balance. On the surface, you're a regular student at a regular high school, taking classes, making friends, and you even have a part-time job to make ends meet. On the other hand, you're a bit of a dungeon-crawler with a mystery to solve. The everyday nature of modern life impinges on everything you do, however, and every decision you make, from choosing which dungeon to enter, who you talk to, and who you choose to hang around with. Strong bonds with your fellow 'detectives' are essential to conquering Persona 4's 60+ hours of gameplay. You can lead team mates in combat and master social links to make you all stronger in the face of the enemy.

Persona 4 is presented in the ever-fashionable Manga style and is sure to appeal to lovers of Eastern-flavoured mystery…and art…and social bonding.
