Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable — Final Thoughts and Trivia


Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 succeeds in the same way that some of the most beloved and famous JRPG’s did: with great characters and a great story.

It’s also a story rife with tragedy and loss, and one of those few games that tackles issues of family dysfunction that games rarely address. The characters’ personal obstacles are so poignant. This LP helped remind me of why I loved this game in the first place.

March 28, 2011: I maxed out Fuuka’s Social Link. We made a cake together and are it in Fuuka’s room at the dorm. Then she gave Kasumi some headphones that she made, with “amazing” sound quality. She said that she gave them to Kasumi just because she wanted to.
