PSP and Vita owning JRPG fans takes note: Atlus has just unveiled their ReVITAlized price drop event and its a doozy.
It has been over a month since the Vita first hit the shores of the US but sadly great games for the system are still lacking, especially on the RPG front. While this is only to be expected from a system that has been available for such a short time, it is still something of bummer for gamers. Well here comes good news from one of the kings of the genre these days: Atlus. While they do not yet have any Vita games to share with owners, they have made the move to dramatically slash prices on all of their library of PSP games currently available via PSN. That is right their entire library. Including all three PSP Persona games. I give you a moment to recover. … … … Better? Good. OK, so lets lay out the full selection of games and their new prices below with the aid of some handy dandy images produced by Atlus themselves.
List of Games in Alphabetical Order:
Class of Heroes (was $39.99, is now $14.99)
Crimson Gem Saga (was $29.99, is now $14.99)
Hexyz Force (was $29.99, is now $14.99)
Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble (was $39.99, is now $14.99)
Knights in the Nightmare (was $29.99, is now $14.99)
Persona (was $39.99, is now $19.99)
Persona 2: Innocent Sin (was $39.99, is now $29.99)
Persona 3 Portable (was $39.99, is now $19.99)
Riviera: The Promised Land (was $14.99, is now $9.99)
Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone (was $14.99, is now $9.99)
There are some amazing games among that list (two of which we covered as part of our PSP 25-in-25 feature: Hexyz Force and Persona 3 ) and if you are a Vita owner looking for something to play while you wait for the system to really strut its stuff, you could do a lot worse than the games on this list. The Dept. Heaven series in particular are some of the most original and unusual takes on the JRPG genre I have ever played and with the next game in the series, Gungnir, due out this June now is the perfect time to get caught up in the series. Stay tuned to Blistered Thumbs for continuing coverage of all Atlus games and be sure to share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
